Monogamy, no cheating, but herpes test says HSV-2?

Recommended Posts

Hi in November of 2020 I found out I have herpes 2. I took a test in 2017 and I was positive for herpes1 but negative for 2. I have been in a monogamous relationship with my boyfriend for 6 years. I never once have cheated. He has herpes one and is negative for herpes two and yes I have seen the test results. I have never had an outbreak or cold sore or anything. Has this happened to anyone else? Or does anyone know how this happened to me? Thank you !

Hi!! @Rei Hino

I'm sorry about this and for a late reply! I hope things have been okay in your relationship since you last posted.

I have a question! What made you get tested for HSV-2? did you have an active outbreak with a swab test or a blood test? This can help me better answer how you may have gotten it!

Sending Love and Light!! ☀️🌈🍀🌼🌄

Hi thanks so much for responding! I thought to get blood tested again since I hadn’t since 2017 and I figured why not I thought it would be good to check on but I have never had an outbreak so I never got swabbed I do get frequent yeast infections I’m not sure if H would be the cause of that.  My relationship is going strong still thank you !

Yay I'm happy to hear your relationship is strong and happy!! ❤️☀️🌼

This is such a puzzle to me! I mean I was thinking that the original 2017 test didn't pick up on it (maybe you had just gotten it somehow?) Also, I know that HSV is related to chicken pox and many other viral strains, so maybe those could have affected the reading for HSV-2? Have you had any viral between 2017 and 2020?

I wish I could offer more hypotheses!! 

Sending happy things your way!! 😊🍀❤️☀️🌼🌄

That could be it that the 2017 test was wrong then the other mystery is how did my partner not contract this in allll of our unprotected years together ? Hmmm what does it mean have I had any viral like chicken pox ? I had a chicken pox when I was like 7-10 years old doctors don’t have anything to say besides I was unfaithful but I was not thanks for responding and talking with me about this sending happiness your way too 💖i accept I have this and am taking vicyclavir so my partner doesn’t get it hopefully he never does 🙂
