Hi Nillah

Thanks for your post!

There is a specific test for herpes that you need to get done but you should also be tested for other STD's since he may have more and could pass along to you.

You haven't been cheating, but as he? Make sure he is monogamous. Never have sex when he has any kind of outbreak. You need to get tested as soon as possible so you know where you stand.

Best,

Susan
