One year: It is recommended that couples attempt pregnancy for 12 months before starting an infertility evaluation. 80-90% will get pregnant during that time frame. If it has been longer than 1 year then fertility testing can be done to help you achieve your goal.

Possibly: If you "never" had a sore during intercourse or with kissing (if you get oral lesions), then even after 3-ish years, partner might not have it. Far more likely that is (+) now as well. It is better to get blood test, since if know both are (+), then have less to worry about in terms of transmission. If still (-), then continued caution, and recommend condoms if not ttc to reduce risk of sharing.
