Question Just diagnosed with HSV 1 & HSV 2

I'm actually in total shock but yet not too sad. This just gave me a serious wake up call. I've never had any outbreaks or red flags for me to think maybe I had the virus. I just need some type of support to get through this and to realize it's not the end of the world.

The fact that I never had any outbreaks, can i still pass the virus to my partner? Is it possible to NEVER have outbreaks too?

Hello, well you are def. lucky never to had an outbreak! There is still a risk of you passing it to your partner even if you never have an outbreak BUT the risk is very low-I have read that it is less than 4%. I've been with both people who have it and also people who don't. I never passed it on to anyone. It's about knowing your body and knowing how to detect if you have any sore. Yours could be very mild. Just be careful, honest and don't have sex if you are having an outbreak
