How to diagnose herepes type 2?
Hello and welcome to healthcaremagic
I am Dr. Kakkar, I have gone through your query and I have understood it.
Being in contact with herpes type 2 virus does'nt necessarily means that you may have acquired it. The risk of acquiring herpes type 2 virus from a woman to man in a monogamous relationship is 3-5% over an year of regular sexual activity (having 2 sexual contacts per week).
I would suggest that you get yourself tested for HSV by HSV ELISA testing rather than just supposing that you have HSV. Moreover since you have not developed symptoms till now, there is no point taking oral antivirals as a prophylaxis without substantiating the diagnosis
