I think my story is just crazy...need some help Please!

me and my hubby have been together for 12 years...married for 9. Ive never cheated and he, honestly, just isnt the type. Last August, me and hubby went out to a concert, had a great time, came home, had fun sex. the very next morning, I got into the shower,and felt a lump (down there). didnt think anything about it, Just took a note of it.
Mentioned it to him later that day,and he said,Yea! me too! what IS that? things got worse,as everyone here knows. started getting sores, it hurt! dug around on the internet to see WTF?,and realized herpes may the the case. Now, Ive NEVER have had a cold sore..nothing else. no infections ever, nothing! Finally went to my ob..she took a culture and told me few days later it was positive. I was devastated! Im 37, only been with 4 people in my life. was always careful. My doc. was great though, she said youll be FINE! if anything its just an inconvience. I havent had another outbreak since the first one...nothing. and neither has hubby. Since last August...

So, how is it that ater 12 years of being together, neither of us had anything and then we wake up to it on the SAME morning????

HELP!

total coincidence. odds are whoever was infected, was actively shedding a few days prior and infected the other. Of course the infected partner could've infected the other long time ago too and both just had obvious symptoms at the same time too. Unless you both had igg blood tests at the time of your symptoms appearing and one was neg for hsv2 and the other +, no way to know. Odds are neither of you were ever tested for herpes before this.

glad you found the board and keep asking questions :)
