According to some of the "experts" on the medhelp forums, herpes is more highly transmittable within 6 mos of acquiring it. I believe it is because your body is still building up antibodies to the virus. Once you've had it awhile because you have a substantial amount of antibodies you most likely not shed as much virus.

The fact that you are on an anti-viral makes is more of a chance that you would not transmit it on a one-time encounter, especially if you were not having any symptoms.
