Re: how long can you have herpes without knowing it

It depends on theperson. Some people will have herpes for years and nto know it. Either its dormint or their symptoms are very mild. You can get a specific blood test if you are concerned.

Re: how long can you have herpes without knowing it

It is possible to be both hsv1 or hsv 2 positive for years without knowing it. Without an outbreak, the only way to find out if you are positive it through a blood test. 2/3rds of people who are positive for HSV 1 do not know.
