Q: Is there a way u can find out when u contracted genital herpes?

Ok. To start, I found out i had genital herpes while i was pregnant. I think they give that test when you,re like 5 or 6 months.You can imagine how devastated i was to find that out especially knowin it can affect the baby.(he's 6 months now and very healthy thank god for that). My boyfriend got tested and doesnt have it. The only other relationship was before him which was my first child's father who i was with for 6 years. Out of the kindness of my heart I informed of this because i was told u can have it for years and not know. He practically acted like i shouldnt even b tellin him this. when i was pregnant with my first child i took all the same test and i didnt have it and he was the person i was with for 6 years before this relationship im in now so what exactly am i suppose to think. It's fustrating sometimes. My boyfriend is understandin and is still with me. Sometimes i get so down. I think "Why me"? I know i can talk to him but at the  same time he dont know how i feel cuz he dont have it. (sorry i wrote so much. This is the first time i've ever really talkd bout it wit anyone besides my boyfriend
