In brief: Herpes

Herpes can be transmitted even if someone is not acutely infected.
It is one of those annoyingly efficient viruses that just hangs around.

In brief: ?

If you are igg positive for herpes, why did "they" tell you that you don't have herpes? That makes no medical sense.
To clarify, hsv is split into hsv 1 and hsv 2; many, many people have hsv 1 orally. If you never had symptoms, why was the test done?
