Yes this is called asymptomatic viral shedding. It happens with both hsv1 and hsv2, and it happens where ever you have it (like oral hsv1 or genital hsv1, etc.).

HSV 2 genital  15-30% of days evaluated
HSV 1 genital  3-5% of days evaluated
HSV 1 oral 9-18% of days evaluated
HSV 2 oral  1% of days evaluated

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the information I just have anxiety of catching herpes when the time is right
Catching herpes is not that easy. If you use condoms, that will reduce your risk quite a bit. Talk to your partners about STDs before having sex, and if you are in monogamous relationships, test with each other before sex. :)
Thanks again for the response
