I have hsv2 but never had an outbreak, how do I know……

I found out a 5 months ago I have hsv2, I’ve never had an outbreak and have no clue how long I’ve had it.  I was devastated, I get tested early for std’s, only to find out that up until now the hsv2 was not included in those tests.  I’m taking the daily suppressive therapy, but never having an outbreak how do I know when to avoid sex?  

Also, I stupidly had unprotected sex with someone who doesn’t know I have hsv2, I’ve read that there only a 3% chance a year of me giving him the virus since I’m on suppressive therapy .  Is that true?  I can’t tell him, it would ruin our friendship, it wasn’t supposed to happen in the first place I don’t know what to do.

I’m just lost, that was the first time I’ve had intercourse since I found out.   I’ve stopped dating, life just sucks.
