Wow, did he go to sex ed? Has he not learned about herpes?? Haha.. I would make sure you're tested, because you can go a long time without an outbreak, so I'd do it just to be safe. Did he not tell you that he had herpes before you two had unprotected sex? And does he not know that if you DID have herpes, and an outbreak during delivery you'd have to have a c-section? It's nothing funny or fun to stress someone out over.
Shingles and herpes are the same thing, just in a different form. If you've ever had the chicken pox, you have the herpes virus already in your body. Ignore him, he's not a doctor, he can't tell you if you have herpes or not.
Im sorry but lol to him shingles has to do with chicken pox
He hasnt ever been diagnosed with herpes, and he thinks that he has it now because of one 'bump' he found down there.. He reckons he has been clean his whole life now this!? Ive never been diagnosed with it nor had symptoms ..
Well sometimes herpes can lay dormant for literally years before you get an outbreak, so it's always best to get it checked. I'm sure your doctor did that as a routine screening in the beginning anyway?
How is it tested if there is no outbreak, is it by bloodtest?
