The only way to truly know would be having the area swabbed to see if you test positive. If this is not possible, have a blood test done. Prodrome can have many symptoms. Usually tingling, redness, itching, irritation, nerve pain etc... hsv is different for everyone. Hope this helps.
You're boyfriend is hurt because he feels like he can't trust you anymore. You need to gain back that trust. Have an honest conversation, show him your test results. If he has a biomedical degree he should know about hsv and know that it isn't a big deal. Have him come here for support, we can help. Hope you guys are able to solve your issues. Next time just be upfront. Let the person make the choice before intimacy. I was never given a choice... I wish I had been.
Terrell, we've been into each other since we married and it was my 35th birthday my husband said he needed to start his vitamins to keep up. His quote is I'm more wife than he can handle and when I'm ill, we cuddle and comfort each other. That's what married people do for each other. I'm Spanish and he says very spicy, but there are times we take it slower than we'd prefer but we always have ways to show the other how much they mean to us . Being a sexually driven person is awesome and you two can make this work. Hugs Aces xo
