Full of Life

My first outbreak was in early November, and I've tried to convince myself that I have type 1 (the swab was unable to type) because the guy I'm with has a history of cold sores (which I obviously didn't know about). But now...since I'm paranoid and look all the time, I can see the tiniest clear bumps...probably about 3 of them, and I think they have since popped. The normal person would only notice that I'm slightly swollen on that side because you have to look so hard to see the bumps. I'm wondering if sex can trigger a type 1 recurrence or if type 1 generally doesn't come back regardless of things like sex, diet, stress etc. I'm really worried I have type 2 now. Not to mention how fantastic it is that this is recurring over Christmas. Any thoughts or experiences would help.
