A little detail Grace..about testing! please
Hello grace.  I hope you remember me.

I will not be returning with any of my irrational questions ever.  It is just a thing I read on Terri Warren herpes post.

She said that Elisa test like the type non specific I had or even herpeselect (not had this test as not available) may fail to detect HSV1 infection in some cases.  Thus being a false negative.

However I have been consistently negative in my NON TYPE specific tests for over 10 times in from 2010 to 2012.  And also negative in the type specific test available here( but not herpeselct).

Does this little fact I read change anything in my situation Grace?  I want to have no doubt.

As you advised I have taken appointment with a psychologist to be seen in a few days.  He will be glad to help me out.

I am not looking reasons for why my test not positive.  I just want to clear any doubt left on my testing.  And this is really the last Grace.

I must also add that I never had oral or genital herpes symptoms.  I feared some asymptomatic infection but all these -ve results boosted my confidence.  The test cannot miss HSV1 for 0ver 10 times!

Ok Grace.  Sorry.

I was asking a question about the testing missing HSV1 but doctor HHH said nothin about and told me my tests are highly reliable.

I take it I do not HSV1 and HVS2 from his answer and yours.

Sorry again.  I had this as a doubt from Terri Warren posts but I do not think it applies in my case.

Cheers

bye
