I hope you are well. I am sorry about your diagnosis. It is hard to accept it, but please know you are a clean and wonderful human being, you just have a common virus.

Many people with herpes are asymptomatic for their entire lives. Others have the virus, and may have visible outbreaks their entire lives. 

This makes us wonder, "Well, can be flip back and forth between being asymptomatic and symptomatic? Or are we one or the other?"

Honestly, I am not 100% sure on the answer. (Can anyone help me out!?).

However, what I would assume is I think you can still have outbreaks that show symptoms in the future, however because your first contact with the virus/when you contracted it was asymptomatic, you may be more likely to be asymptomatic in the future.  

Sorry I do not have an exact answer! I would ask a doctor if you can, or another friend on the forum may have a better answer!

Stay well. Everything will be okay! 🙂
