hi there,

was wondering if it is possible for a guy to never have any cold sores, genital herpes, or any other symptoms, and to be in a 7 year relationship and have his partner never develop any symptoms either, and yet for him still to have HSV and pass it onto a new partner?

Wouldn't one or the other have had symptoms at some point during that time?

thanks!

Often times symptoms are overlooked and what you might percieve as a rash, or pimples, or just dry skin that cracked, can actually be an outbreak...also, i read that about 40% of people do not have symptoms and don't have blatantly obvious outbreaks or any at all...so for either of them not to have symptoms that's not really uncommon. Also, unless he's been tested for everything there's no way that he could know if he had it or not unless he and his partner had a bloodtest.
