Still Being Evaluated

Recommended Posts

I have never had symptoms but just found out I may have HSV 1, possibly also 2?

My life partner is also being evaluated.

Unfortunately, the blood tests came back with a range, and though it seems to indicate HSV 1, my partner's seems to indicate 1 & 2.

Needless to say, we're both very distraught. I get the blame because I engaged in unprotected sex with another female, (the 1st in more than 5 years, other than my partner), so there's that.

There are other factors but testing prior to this event seems to indicate the same result, with a lower number.

I did not see  "positive" at that time and it didn't register what I was looking at until I took this deeper dive.

Freaking out a little here and open to any thoughts!

Herpes blood tests are frustrating to say the least. Unfortunately the most common ones give unclear results, commonly giving false positives and false negatives. For a definitive result, get a Western Blot test. Here is more details about herpes blood testing
