Can you transmit herpes after testing negative for antibodies in

Can you transmit herpes after testing negative for antibodies in blood? My partner stated they recently contracted the virus and we believe that it may have come from me. I had a blood test done and came back negative for hsv1 and 2 antibodies however we both know in males the virus tends to hide itself.

I have been married with my husband 25 years and recently I have diagnosed with Herpes 1 and herpes 2 his results are negative . I have been loyal to him all these years I have never kissed another man during our marriage. We have never shown any form of out brakes. We were both tested for sexual transmitted diseases in England 25 years ago and we both came clear. Two questions if we are not using protection and we are sexually active how come that he has not got not even antibodies nothing he is totally clear. Second question : if we have been both true to each other how come, that I have Herpes 1 and Herpes 2?

I was with a partner who had no symptoms of genital herpes . One week later she contacted me saying she had an outbreak , and had tested positive. I went for blood testing, and came back 0.91 (negative) for IgG. I understood this to mean that I did not infect her, but rather that she had it prior but had never had an outbreak until that time. I am also to understand that if i contracted herpes from her that the antibodies would not be noted so soon after infection, and that I must wait 8-12 weeks for a proper testing. My question is this: Are there treatments I could be taking at this time to proactively decrease my likelyhood of developing herpes, or being contagious - both immediately and in the future?
