Positive blood test for Hsv2, but is it oral or genital?
I tested positive for HSV-2 two months ago. However, I never had an outbreak, and doctor at planned parenthood told me the positive blood test only proved i had Hsv2, but not where the infection is. (I had protected vaginal sex but gave unprotected oral sex with the partner with Hsv2.)
I got a prescription for daily suppressants, but I held stopped taking them, since I thought that if I wait the for the outbreak, I would know where the Hsv2 really is. The outbreak happened, only on the genitals.
My question: does this "prove" my herpes is only genital? Would be safe for me perform oral sex without me worrying about infecting my partner?
