So recently I had a fissure on my labia which the dr thought to be from lack of lubricant but did a herpes select test just in case. She told me I tested positive for herpes but from what I have read online the test is negative. Can somebody tell me what they see? My results were as follows:
HSV 1 iGG AB 0.06
HSV 2 type specific AB 0.13
Herpes simplex virus 1.15
My partner has not been tested but neither of us have ever shown any symptoms other than the "fissure" that appeared right after sex. We have been together for 5 months and have not had any other sexual partners so I'm confused on why they would tell me I do have it. It's quite frustrating. What test do you suggest I get and where can I go to get it?
