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

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.
