Since the time of my initial outbreak of genital HSV-1 nearly 10 years ago, I have only had one other episode. It occurred during
the first few months of my pregnancy
two and half years ago.
I am no longer married to the man who gave me genital HSV-1 from his cold sore, but I am remarried. I was very honest about my exposure to HSV-1, and he has been more than supportive. I was his first sexual partner, so there were no concerns that he was a carrier of any disease.
