Ok as I'm sure you'll see I have posted here and in the expert forums before. I'm looking for some advice and opinions from peoe who have been down my road before. I have had two type specific HSV tests for HSV 1 & 2. My HSV 2 IgG results were both negative and both tests were at least 3-4 months after last exposure. My HSV 1 results were a low positive IgG, I think it was around 1.5, followed by a negative result 4 months later. Now I've had Dr. Hook, Terri, Grace, and my GP tell me I don't have HSV but for some reason I can't accept the results. Has anyone else experienced this? Does anyone have advice as to how to accept my results and believe I don't have HSV? I've believe I've take a right step and start seeing a therapist to help me with this. For some reason I have this irrational thought that I am going to give anyone I date HSV even though my tests are negative! Any advice would be greatly appreciated and feel free to be completely honest and brash if necessary. I need to help to move on from this!
