I received Herpes at the age of 40. I was treated quickly with medication. My husband had passed away and I did not think about myself having herpes for a long time. Later in life I met my partner I live with now. I have had one outbreak at 49 which would of been my second time only. I am 53 years old now. My partner has thought alot about what would happen if I passed the virus onto him. These are the only two times I had an outbreak. Is it possible after reaching a certain age the outbreaks demises the changes of having more breakouts? I only received two outbreaks with in 13 years.
