    How long can genital herpes lay dormant? I have not been with a sexual partner for over 1.5 years.
    why me? why me?

    I have not had sexual relations in over 1.5 years but was recently diagnosed with herpes.  I do get cold sores 2-4 times a year.  My doctor feels this is how I contracted the virus, how possible is this?  Is it more possible that I was infected by a previous partner years ago?
