I just was diagnosed with Herpes II in my throat. I was married for 24 yrs, been separated for 1 yr, and other than my ex, only have given oral sex to one other person one time, a few wks ago. With in a few days I began to have severe sore throat and high fevers. This gentleman had a herpes infection in his eye many many yrs ago. I don't know about any genital herpes, but will be talking to him today about that. Is there anyway the herpes could have been dormant for this long from my ex? This is the first time I have ever had symptoms like this. Strep, mono, HIV were all ruled out. If there is no possibility it could have come from my ex, and laid dormant for this long, I don't want to mention it to him. Things are very volatile between us and he doesn't need to know about this. If my current boyfriend has never had symptoms of genital herpes, is there any way it can be transmitted through semen from the infection he had in his eye yrs ago? Thank you for your help!
I don't have the numbers from the test results but I can call Dr and get them. The throat swab was done to test for viral infection. Never even considered hsv1 or 2 could be a possibility. We had ruled out bacterial, strep and mono already.
