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.

That sounds like an initial outbreak of herpes.

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
