Q: I recently was tested and it showed positive for Herpes I. The testing level was 1.23 with less than.90 being the level that is safe. Some background-I was involved with another woman for over a year and was sexually active with her. I am no longer involved but my wife needed to know if I had contacted any STD's. Is it for sure I contacted Herpes from this woman or have I had it all along it never showed itself until I was tested. I've never had cold sores or any type of breakout. What is the status of being intimate with my wife now. Is it OK to have sex without using a condom? How about oral sex? Will I give this to her? Thanks.
