I encourage you and your bf to read the herpes handbook at www.westoverheights.com.  You might want to rethink your bf not being on suppressive therapy to help lower your risk of contracting herpes - especially if you are planning on starting a family someday.  If you can avoid contracting genital herpes until after that - it's just less worrying during pregnancy.

Have you ever had a herpes blood test to know your own status?

If you have been diagnosed with HSV 1 on the tongue (intraoral herpetic ulcers on tongue), is this something that will continue to reoccur throughout your life as a cold sore would on the lip? Is there anywhere that has info about this as well? Thanks!
