hello and welcome to healthcare magic.
as for your question regarding the usage of condom and getting herpes there could have been a tear in the condom during intercourse. and as far as getting herpes is concerned it could have been transferred from your husband it is better he gets himself tested and both of you receive the treatment.
take care.
