But, infected humans need to know. ...Read more

I understand herpes without symptoms is a low risk of transmission to partner. How low? Do I need to tell him? He is married

Impossible to tell: For an individual, transmission either happens or not with every sexual contact. Risk goes down w/suppressive antivirals taken daily but not to zero. I believe your partner has a right to know. I would also suggest that you continue using a condom.

Possibly: Asympomatic (no or few/mild symptoms) carriers do exist but since transmission is most likely when an infected person's open sores contact the delicate mucus membrane tissue of another person. It's rarely been known to transfer from a non-symptomatic individual, but he can have a (not perfect) test. Info: http://goaskalice. Columbia. Edu/testing-asymptomatic-herpes
