Completely blow away and shocked

Recommended Posts

So, I got divorced after 20 years after finding out my husband was cheating on me.  I recently was at my yearly GYN appointment and asked her to do a STD panel.  When I saw the results that I had Herpes antibodies, I was floored.  I am still shocked.  I never had a clue, an idea, an inkling that I have this.  I haven't even left the house since this news and just want to know how others found out, how you dealt, etc.  Thanks for any and all info.

Well, as I tell everyone I speak to on here, I am sorry that you found yourself on this site. A diagnosis of any life long disease is certainly not easy to accept.

I think there's a couple of things that need to be said about the information you provided. First of which is whether you tested positive for HSV1 or HSV2. A large portion of the U.S. population is infected with HSV1. If you tested positive for this, then it's really not out of the ordinary.

Secondly, there is a pretty good chance of false positives depending on the IgG score. I believe a score of 3 and below is a good indication of a possible false positive, but apparently people have had higher scores and still ended up being negative when tested with a more sensitive test.

I understand that the results may have been a shock to you, but I can tell you that you've certainly come to the right place to find out how many people are in the exact same boat.
