My boyfriend just found out he tested positive for type I herpes a month ago. He got it from is ex-girlfriend of 7 years who had oral herpes. He was actually shocked because for those 7 years he did not have any outbreaks. He still has not had an outbreak. I actually got tested a month ago and tested negative. It was really hard for me at first because he was my first sexual partner and he did not know he had it until after we had had oral sex a couple of times and protected sex for a week. Plus on top of that he had type I with no outbreaks so I did not know and still do not know where he has herpes (genital/oral). However, both of us did research on herpes and felt prepared to take this on. We take all the precautions. He is literally the greatest guy I have ever met and we are so HAPPY together
. Him having herpes has just been pushed to the back of our minds.
