i got tested because i have been with my first and only boyfriend for four years and we never used protection. the reason i got tested was because he was cheating on me all for two years and i didn't find out until last month and i decided to get testes for HIV and any other stds. my doctor said that i have herpes and put me on acyclovir for five days and told me come back on Thursday. he said that i needs to go back for a test in three weeks time.
what my doctor also told me is that for the igg test it meant i had herpes HSV1 in the past but now it is negative, and he also said that my HSV 2 antibodies is at 1.4 at present meaning that i have the HSV 2 infection.
