I am not sure of the type as it was a "standard" test administered by a local planned parenthood. I know the results came back with results of <.05 and <.091 or something of the sort and were translated as "essentially negative". I don't know if this is helpful.
Unfortunately, after recently deciding to stop the usage of condoms in hopes of expanding our family and after multiple years of being committed, I am currently experiencing my first full blown vaginal outbreak (diagnosed as herpes 2 days ago). Neither of us can understand how you begin with two negative tests and end up with vaginal herpes in a monogamous relationship. I am praying the consistent occurrence of cold sores on his mouth since before I met him can help explain the discrepancy between the initial results and current situation.View Thread
