HSV 1 husband and wife
41 yo male 10 yr monogamous marriage recently had primary ob of genital HSV 1.  initial blood tst showed HSV 1 and 2 - specific AB IgG, HSV 1 IgG <.91 and HSV 2 IgG <.91, HSV 1 and 2 IgM Abs, Indirect HSV 1 Igm antibodies 1:10, HSV 2 Igm Antibodies 1:100.  Following blood work had culture of sore via Virus Culture: VZV/HSV W/DFA result Herpes simplex 1 isolated.  Meanwhile wife freak out never had an ob goes for blood test.  Her results HSV 1 IGG Type Spec result 1.0 High, HSV 2 IGG, type spec <.91 and HSV 1 IGM antibodies <1.10 and HSV 2 IGM antibodies <1.10.  Again she's never had an OB so it appears she has had HSV-1 for quite some time.  I had chaffing from genital shaving and am thinking thats how i contracted HSV-1 genital from her from intercourse or oral.  The problem is now she won't have intercourse oral or vaginal out of fear that i can give her what she gave me.  We have 3 yng kids and a monogamous relationship for 10 yrs.  Can anyone assuage her fears that i can't give her anything?  From my understanding she has antibodies that are preventing her from ob's and that i could not reinfect her.  That's the best i've ascertained from my research but it's going to take an expert to convince her.  Please help!  Someone like Dr. H. Hunter Handsfield seems to be the best fit.  Thank you!
