even the best herpes tests still miss 1 out of every 10 hsv1 infections. should he experience a recurrence of oral symptoms, he should be seen and ask for a herpes lesion culture of symptoms within 48 hours of their appearance. Potentially much more accurate answers than more blood testing for him.
I agree too that you need tested to know your own status. 1 out of every 2-3 adults has hsv1 orally whether they know it or not. You and your partner can't make educated decisions about what precautions to take for sex and oral sex until you also know your status too.
