  1. @Flowerteacher55 Thank you so much for the inspiration and positive words.
  2. Okay I see. Well isn't the fact that I have sores kind of a giveaway that I have HSV?
  3. @Flowerteacher55I don't know of any previous infection of HSV 1 and i have never had a cold sore. It was an IGG blood test. I haven't been intimate with anyone since first sore because I wanted to get test results back, although I did masturbate occasionally. I didn't think I was particularly rough but maybe because there had recently been a sore. I didn't notice any prodrome symptoms. Im from south jersey and moving to philly soon. Have fam there and all. Thanks for the info. @BootsychootsyBy the time I was able to get an appointment the sore was kind of healed so we just did a blood test. What do you mean it will be a more accurate result? What would be more accurate?
  4. So to preface this Im still waiting for my doctor to call and review my results with me, but the blood work was posted online and I saw that I was positive for HSV-1 with a 12.50 H value (so well above the positive value threshold. Annoyingly she's had the results for days now and I still haven't heard back from her, but whatever. I went into the doctors pretty sure I had HSV-2 due to a previous sexual partner telling me they were recently positive and I had a sore on my penis like a week after we had sex. Is it possible for me to have already had HSV-1 and something about contact with my partner made a sore show up? I confirmed that they are positive with HSV-2 not 1, so how did I get HSV-1? The original sore cleared up about 2-3 weeks ago but I am now seeing a grouping of a few more sores. Is this my first OB or a continuation? I'm trying to be patient for my doctor to call me back, but I feel like I should be on medication sooner rather than later. I'm defeated, confused, and annoyed all in one.
