Yes it is possible, because the virus can lie dormant for awhile and then stress or a weakened immune system can induce an outbreak.

How long usually before you normally get symptoms after being infected

Typically 2-10 days after exposure to the virus. However it does vary to person to person, someone may carry the virus and be completely a symptomatic and would never no they have herpes, but they can still spread it.

He is in the process of being tested.   My doctor said I just got infected.   No more than 3 to 4 weeks.   He was surprised.  I think
He thinks its not him.   He never had anything before  he said no symptons
