hi I have had herpes for over 10 years, I am not sure if it is HSV 1 or 2, I only get outbreaks once a year, maybe twice if its a bad year and I don't take anything for it, it is not uncomfortable or sore and it is no that bad its just there.my questions are, if I meet someone who has the same HSV as I do but they get it a lot worse than I do, is it possible for me to get worse symptoms if I have unprotected sex with this person? also if I sleep with someone that has the other type of hsv and catch that too is it likely to be mild also like I have now or will it depend on how badly the other person gets it, ie are there different strength strands of the same virus getting around? lastly my ex wife who I was with for 7 years and not using protection (she knew the risks) never showed any symptoms so if I meet someone else that does not have it, is it likely that if they catch it that they to will not show symptoms due to the weaker stand or is this irrelevant? I can tell when I am going to get an outbreak and abstain during that period.
