So my girlfriend has HSV (not sure if it’s one or two) I am getting tested tomorrow, and i am pretty sure that I gave it to her because she got tested less than a year ago, and swears she didn’t cheat. her doctor told me that this stuff happens quite often, and it is often not the result of anyone cheating, but that the disease was dormant in one of us. Also I trust her very much so i am pretty certain that it will be myself, the crazy thing is I can only recall having sex with one random girl who i didn’t use a condom on, and before this ever happened my gf said the same exact thing (one guy no condom).
Anyways I was told literally 1/4 people have it but a large percentage of people don’t know they do making it seem more rare. My question is for anyone who has it, how has it changed your sexual experience? For the doctors is it really that prevalent, and how do you advise people to deal with it?
