I have genital herpes but I don’t know when having sex with a new boyfriend. Previously experienced an outbreak, but never relapsed for one year. During intercourse we used condoms and I had no symptoms. Two days after that I only had symptoms and experienced an outbreak but it wasn’t severe. The next day, he felt itchy and had a small but not severe boil and a few days after that appeared another small boil.

Hello Sonja,

Genital herpes is caused by the herpes simplex virus. Symptoms are a group of watery nodules with a reddish surrounding, feels pain and sometimes itchy, swollen, and if broken can become sores.

Checks to make sure is by history taking, physical examination, blood test, and wound fluid test. The reactive IgG test results indicate a marker that you have previously been infected with. While grayzone IgM means ambiguous whether it is infected or not.

Transmission of herpes through intercourse, whether vaginal, oral, or anal. Transmission can occur when the virus is active, whether symptoms are present or are not symptomatic.

To ascertain whether your boyfriend has herpes or not still need to be examined directly yes. If you are not satisfied with the answers of the doctor who examined your girlfriend, you and your boyfriend can find a second opinion with another doctor directly (so you can check directly too). Regarding who is infectious, this cannot be ascertained because you must also see a history of sexual relations from you and your girlfriend.

To help prevent transmission of herpes, you can do the following tips:

 Avoid changing sexual partners. Use condoms during intercourse. Avoid intercourse when symptoms appear. Wash hands with soap if touching herpes sores. Hopefully this can help you,

Thank you
