    Get tested, blood. If you have little blisters, or open red sores, then there is a good chance you have it, and you will notice, they HURT. YEs, you can pass it even if you have no signs. Go to the doctor THE DAY YOU SEE A BLISTER BEFORE it pops. The virus dies fast after the sore is open, but you can still pass it! The doctor should pop it and test the stuff inside it. READ MORE

    Hi lele,


    You posted this question a long time ago, and I see you received excellent advice from our community members.  Always use condoms when you have sex to make sure you are less likely to contract (or pass on) any STDs. 


    I am not a medical doctor, but I can tell you that it is possible to pass on Herpes without knowing you have the disease.  You can be a carrier long before you show symptoms (and you may never have a break out.)  Only your doctor can tell you for sure once she or he runs the appropriate blood tests.

     I hope all is well!
