I have been reading some of the responses and some mention that the CDC does not suggest blood test for herpes. I went to get tested for chlamydia because my boyfriend tested positive for it. My doctor ordered a Herpes blood test along with it. I have never experienced any breakouts. Never did the swab test. And now my doctors says i am positive for both HSV1 and HSV2. So my question is, Am I asymptomatic? Could my now, ex boyfriend have it? And how could I have not known I had this?? And why did my (urgent care) doctor order a blood test if i never complained about it and the CDC does not recommend it to be done?
I just recently got diagnosed with herpes and I’m not taking it to well. I had a flare up a few days after having unprotected intercourse with my partner. Although my test came positive and theirs came back negative. Is this possible ?
In a relationship for 3 years no symptoms. We split 4 months ago and as of a week ago I have symptoms. Got tested today. Is it possible to go this long without symptoms after our last sexual encounter. She has hsv 1 (cold sores) now I have genital symptoms please help
I got tested and all came back negative except HSV. It appears Syphillis and herpes almost look identical. How do I know that the blood test didn’t pick up on syphilis and just herpes? When i take my medicine the hsv goes away so that makes me think it is just herpes.
I am recently diagnosed as of Jan/Feb I believe of this year and the outbreaks are inSane. Does your first year have a lot and is that normal? It starts off as a pimple then scabs over once i take the acloyvir
