If its hsv-1 then threw contact such as kissing ...all of us parents kiss and cuddle our kids but if we have hsv-1 there is a big possibility to pass it to the kiddos unfortunately.

I really am at a lost for words I just found out and im terrified for my kids to pass this on some way...there are many more knowledgeable ppl in this community who might respond on how this can be possible. I know that hsv is through skin to skin...what i can think of now is if your kids are older and adults or late teens and sexually active they could have been unlucky and been exposed through sexual contact...

So all your children had blood tests?  What were their numbers?  Most experts say even if you test positive with a number > 1.2 that if that number is < 3.5 it could be a false positive.

Every day thousands of women who have genital herpes give birth with no problems.  As long as her doctors know it really shouldn't be a problem.

If your children are grown, they most likely got this on their own and not from you.  Hundreds of millions of people have hsv2 and live normal life.  I have been on this website daily for over 7 years and have chatted with thousands of Herpsters over those years and many have actually told me that getting this virus changed their lives for the better.

I hope the more that you learn about this virus the more you can see it really is just a very common, mostly harmless one.

      That's exactly right, you can return to your life and get the blood test as a sleep easy in 12 weeks time (from the last episode).

      Him and his ex have regular breakouts with all the traditional symptoms and I believe he was swabbed.  So I can return to life as it was before all of this drama ? I may still look into a blood test is I am confident it is accurate

      @Laurenhelena how is this guy sure he has herpes? All sounding a bit odd to me. Yes it is very unlikely you will develop lesions now. Rubbing skin to skin is required for any feasible transmission chance. The odds of transmission with unprotected vaginal sex are of the order of 0.08% per epsiode. Halve this if a condom is worn. Compare that to chamydia that has about a 33% chance of transmission with unprotected sex; now that's contagious!

      I just feel that it’s known as such a contagious STD - I’ve been lying to my family cause when I tried to talk about it they became very anxious and begged me to tell them I hadn’t slept with him when I had - If someone told me that they slept with someone with genital herpes my mind would instantly think they had it.  So it’s unlikely then that I’m going to get symptoms now? I’m not going anything further with that guy but we have cuddled and kissed in bed with underwear on, is that ok?  Im quite sure he has hsv2 given that his ex gave it to him through a threesome  I’ve never had a cold sore
