How did I get infected? Freaking Out

Recommended Posts


I know I should probably just move on now that I have been infected but I can't stop thinking about how in the world did this happen.

My husband and I were virgins when we met in HS

We have NEVER cheated on each other

Neither of us has EVER had cold sores on our mouths

About a week before I broke out I visited my OB/GYN for my annual exam

IS IT POSSIBLE that my doctor infected me? Could he have transmitted it to me during the exam or from the exam table or equipment?

Any responses would be great. Thanks.

P.S. i do get canker sores...my doctor is telling me I most like autoinnoculated because if I have canker sores then I have HSV1...but everything I read says this isnt true!!!!! Is he covering up something

No chance that your doctor gave it to you. If all your information is correct, almost certainly your husband has asymptomatic oral HSV-1 (cold sores) and he transmitted it to you during oral sex.

The good news is that it is nearly impossible for you two to pass it back and forth, as you both have antibodies to it.
