Herpes

Jul 18, 2016 - 0 comments

My girlfriend contracted herpes type 1 when she was a child. It is very rare and has gone years without an outbreak. I do know there are periods of asymptomatic shedding.  I do not have the virus. How high of a risk do I have on contracting the virus even if no outbreak present? I realize the virus is extremely common, I just don't want to contract it.
