How did I get herpes?

Hello. I was recently diagnosed with herpes but I just don't understand how I got it.

I've only had sex with two women. The first one was always without a condom and she had had several partners without a condom. However, I was with her for 3 years and I never showed symptoms of herpes. I first saw the bumps after being sexually active with another woman who was a virgin. She had only received and given oral to two men. I showed symptoms very soon after I had sex with this second woman without protection. My question is how could I possibly have gotten herpes from her if she was a virgin? More importantly since I don't know where the herpes came from I'm afraid I might get another disease from the same source like HIV or Hepatitis. For this reason I'm afraid to have sex with this second girl without a condom because I'm unsure if she gave me herpes and I'm afraid she might also have HIV or Hepatitis or some other disease. Would you say it's safe to continue having sex with her without a condom?

What testing did you have done to confirm herpes? Have either of your partners had any testing done?

I'm no expert, but I wouldn't continue to have unprotected sex until both you and your current partner know what you're bringing to the table.
