I recently got my test results for my herpes blood test and tested positive for HSVII. I've never had sex before ( including oral) and was wondering how i could have been infected.
HsV 1: IGg .15 negative
HSV II: IGg 1.44 H
Can anyone explain these results to me?
your hsv2 igg is a low positive and most likely a false positive. you've never had sex before so really it's up to you if you want to actually follow up with confirmatory testing or just assume that it really isn't positive since it's so unlikely to actually be +.
HSV's are communicable through fluid exchange. You can get it orally and in your eyes from...think about it!
HSV2 used to be primarily a genital disease, but now that oral sex has jumped from the sex trade to a norm in our culture, it's just as prevalent orally.
I know someone who got it in their eye in grade school, and you know how kids just spread fluids like crazy, or any family or friend, kissing or laughing with a little spit if they have HSV2 orally, can infect your mouth or eyes.
Just get tested later to make sure.
