Transmission Question

Hi everyone, so since my initial outbreak with the HSV1 virus in September, 2011, I've had ONE pretty bad outbreak due to surgery. Other than that, I haven't had any issues except the occasional tingle on my lip. I've been taking Valacyclovir 500mg everyday. However, I'm the type who just naturally has a weak immune system no matter how hard I try to stay healthy. I am still with the same guy, but I am only 21 and sometimes wonder if I will ever date/hookup a new guy. I am wondering how high the transmission rate is with HSV 1.. I know genital is a little worse & I do take my medication everyday. But the shedding aspect of this virus confuses me, and as I've mentioned I have a pretty weak immune system. Any info would greatly be appreciated! Thank you!
