Sorry if this isn't the right sub, I'm not sure where to ask.

I've had cold sores roughly once a year for as long as I can remember. I've found out I have HSV-1 herpes (genital herpes) for the first time. How big a deal is this? How does this affect my future sex life? Have I always had HSV-1 as I always had cold sores (oral herpes)?

Thanks!
