A few months ago I had unprotected sex with a partner I was for about 6 months. After that, I found out he cheated and broke up with him (in early September). I freaked out but couldnt get brave enough to go to the GYN to get fully STD tested for the first time in my life (I never had sex before this guy). I finally did in late November. I tested negative for everything except HPV and HSV-2. The lady from my doctor's office told me my HSV level was too low so she would want me to retest in 4 weeks, which I just did.
Apparently, my first level was 1.0 and I just got the results today in 1.39
I'm sad, freaked out and don't know what to do. Does this mean that I definitely have HSV2? I haven't had any sexual encounter with anybody since september with my ex.
Please let me know what to do next. Do you recommend to retest? If so, in how many months. Should I use the same igG test or do another one and how long do I have to wait for it also, etc....
Please HELP. I'm too embarrassed to share with my family or friends and i'm desperate View Thread
Hi! Thanks for your reply. I called my doctor's office today to request further testing, but she said that the first level, 1.0 indicated "exposure" to the virus, but since the level went up, that means i definitely have herpes View Thread
