Hsv2 is rare in the mouth. Has few outbreaks and sheds very little. I doubt your boyfriend has oral hsv2. You can always get tested together to see who has what.
You can't get another hsv l infection of the genitals if you already have it.
How were you diagnosed with genital HSV1 9 years ago?
Also, a few months after I contracted HSV 1 (9 years ago), I was given shots (I think a set of four shots in the buttocks). I'm not sure what this medication was but it was from Russia and it seemed to work because after that I basically didn't get breakouts any more (very tiny mild flareups on rare occasions). I'm not sure if that would affect my body's reaction if I were to contract HSV 2. Thanks for your help, thoughts and answers!
The most likely explanation here is an issue that is unrelated to herpes.
You have confirmed genital HSV1 and have had it for a long time. Hence swollen lymph nodes etc. will generally not occur given they are not used in the addressing the virus longer term.
Your partner already has oral HSV1, so that's good to be concordant. His outbreak cannot stimulate any issues with HSV1 for you.
HSV2 is only practically possible from vaginal or anal sex from your partner's penis. His oral infection will almost undoubtedly be HSV1 as it is so common and he has visible outbreaks. Without lesions to swab, I wouldn't be too worried about things.
You can get an igg blood test at anytime. How the blood test works is it looks for the antibodies your body makes to help control the virus. So no need for an outbreak.
Hsv1 genitally usually has a harsh primary outbreak and then very few and mild outbreaks after that. Your outbreaks being few and far between and mild are very typical. Some people never have another outbreak after the primary.
Hope this helps
