Recently I was diagnosed with HSV2. I have been with the same partner for 15 years. We recently seperated and I had un protected sex with someone else over a 6 month period. 8 weeks after our last time I had my first OB. I went to the drs and she swabbed the area and it came negative for HSV2 she asked me to have a blood test as she was sure this was genital Herpes. I had a Herpes Select 1 & 2 done and I tested positive for HSV2 and my igg number was 25.1. Can anyone tell me if could be from the man I was sleeping with over the 6 months? My husband went out immediately and got a blood test and his came back negative ( we have not been together in 9 mnths) the other guy also says that he was tested and it came back negative and that his dr told him that he should have been showing symptoms by now if he had it. I have only been with these 2 men in my life and I am trying to find some answers. Any information would be greatly appreciated.View Thread
I received a copy of my results and this is what it said: H simplex I/II 25.1 h index 0.0-0.8... Should I get another test done? If so which one do I need to take to get accurate results? Thank you so much for all of your help.View Thread
