I have just been diagnosed this morning and I am very confus

[20]

I have just been diagnosed this morning and I am very confused i have until 8 months ago been single and not sexually active for 4 years.... I am now finally happy and in a loving relationship and this has happened ... we have been having unprotected sex for 6 months of the 8month relationship and he has no symptoms and never has... he is very understanding and has been since I noticed something was wrong he is at work at the moment and I will tell him the test results when he gets home... can you continue to have a normal sex life after a diagnosis? Providing you abstain from sex during an outbreak can you have unprotected sex? Because if the answer is no how do you try for a baby? I have seen the percentage of transmission to a man without a condom when no breakout is present is 4% those odds seem low especially as he hasn’t contracted it in the 6months we’ve been sleeping together (I know he could have been the one to bring it into the relationship without knowledge as he hasn’t had symptoms) obviously it’s down to his choice on if he wants to use protection now everytime but I just wanted to see if there is anyone who is positive and their partner isn’t but still have unprotected sex there is so much conflicting information out there- thank you

i have type2 gen for 34 yrs. in my travels to the best of my knowledge, by knowing my body well, i never passed it to any of my partners. i am now married for 22 yrs and have given it to my spouse, but it was due to hot married sex. she wasn't happy about it, but we have other more straining issues to contend with instead rather than worry about HSV. mainly old age issues!

How long were you having unprotected sex with your wife before she contracted it? (Sorry if that is too personal)

we were together sexually for a year with no issues, then married, then after maybe a year? hard to remember, it was so long ago.
