Tested for Herpes results came in that I have antibodies for HSV 1 and HSV 2 but i have not ever had a breakout, what does this mean?

  • I tested years ago maybe a little over 10 years, i was told by my doctor that I technically don't have it because I don't have breakouts and cant really officially diagnose me unless I have a breakout because that is what they usually test. I have never had a breakout ever. I also do not understand the difference with HSV 1 and HSV 2, if I have it in the mouth or genital or both. What does this all mean, do I have it? Can is spread it? (if so how do I know when?) I understand using condoms can help, but when I'm married and want to have kids how do I do that if I don't have any symptoms and i don't want to spread it to my partner? Why isn't there enough information on this when its such a common thing?
