I was diagnosed with Genital Herpes 25 years ago; however I have not had any outbreaks since. I am aware that I can be asymptomatic, but still carry the virus. I decided to go ahead and get the Herpes Select Test in hopes this test would give me an accurate, beyond doubt, conclusion if in fact I was diagnosed correctly years ago.
Can you tell me if this test will accurately confirm either that I still have the Herpes Virus and was in fact diagnosed correctly, or by some great miracle come back with negative results for HSV1 and HSV2 and conclude I was misdiagnosed. At the time I also had Genital Warts which I understand can occur simultaneously with Herpes.
