How can I have caught it if my partner hasn’t got it? – HERPES

13 – How can I have caught it if my partner hasn’t got it?
Three quarters of the people with herpes simplex have it so mildly they do not realise they have it. They may have sex when the virus is active. Mild symptoms can be a pimple, a little cut or an itchy bit of skin. When people with these mild symptoms learn to recognise them, then they can avoid sex at these times.
