the torch test is a very outdated testing method that isn't appropriate for adults for the most part. It's designed for newborns.  

Your herpes results are negative on the test but the testing you had done isn't very accurate.   because you are pregnant, you want your partner to get tested for herpes too to see what their status is if you have a regular partner.  Knowing your status is only half of the picture.  

we don't comment on your other testing here - only herpes test results.

herpes is  never a reason for an abortion.

your herpes testing was negative. why is your provider saying you have to have an abortion if your spouse is hsv+?  

I highly recommend you consider a 2nd opinion before following through with an abortion.
