Diagnosed hsv 1 found in cervix, tested negative with blood work. Indication of infection?

I was diagnosed with hsv 1 found in cervix, but me and my partner of 5 years both tested negative with bloodwork. Is this indication of nee infection? I've only been with him but he had been with other girls sexually. I did have an encounter about 4 momths ago when a guy just fingered me, we both had our clothes on. Could I have contracted genital hsv 1 by him touching me down there? I'm so confused help!

Thanks for your query.
Genital herpes is contracted only by sexual intercourse - oral, anal or vaginal.
the likelihood of acquiring it by fingering is very remote - unless he had an open lesion on his finger and touched your private parts with those secretions.
Very hypothetical indeed.
You have acquired it from your current partner - that is the only explanation.
however his being negative on bloodwork makes it even more complicated.
The only thing for sure is - it is transmitted by sexual contact or oral mouth to mouth kissing.
Take care.
