    HSV1

    I have been in a relationship with a man for 5 years. Last year I had symptoms of and tested positive for HSV1. I confronted my boyfriend and he said he has had cold sores for years. Can I contract HSV1 at this point in time in my relationship? I suspect I did not contract it 5 years into the relationship becausenof a cold sore...anyone have any thoughts? I appreciate anything at this point.

    Hi I think its like 93% of the worlds population carries HSV1, so really its something you could have had as a child from being in school, or from a kiss as you grow up.

    Its not such a really big thing when you think about it.

        Although it CAN be transmitted via sexual contact, that is not the most common cause. It can be transmitted by sharing towels/utensils/straws/glasses, kissing, in fact, it can be transmitted via pretty much any skin to skin contact with the infected area.
