hello i have a question i tested positive on a non specific herpes test and without knowin the type i took antiviral famivir and i tested again after 1 month andthe result was negative for both types.
can famivir suppress the antibody to a level that it produce a negative test result?
i asked a doctor he said once you develop antibodies they stay life long medication does not suppress the antibodies they just inhabit the viral replication.
will taking famivir for 10 days affect the test result???
