positive result

I had unprotected sex with a woman 3 weeks before I had this tests done. here are my results:

HSV 1/2 IGG HERPESELECT
    HSV 1 IGG HERPESELECT AB   >5.00  positive
    HSV 2 IGG HERPESELECT AB     negative
HEPATITIS B SURFACE          non reactive
EPATITIS C ANTIBODY           non reactive
HEPATITIS A IGM                    non reactive
C.TRACHOMATIS DNA, SDA
   C. TRACHOMATIS                 not detected
N.GONORRHOEAE DNA, SDA
   N. GONORRHOEAE               not detected
RPR (DX) W/REFL TITER AND
    CONFIRMATORY TESTING    non reactive
HIV AB, HIV 1/2, EIA,
    WITH REFLEXES
       HIV 1/2 EIA AB SCREEN     non reactive

Questions:

1.- What does it mean being positive in HSV1? what does the "5.00" means? (how bad is it?)
2.- Was it sexually transmitted?
3.- What is the treatment?
4.- Does this affects future relationships?
5.- Should I repeat any of these tests to make sure everything is ok?

Thank you,
B

most of your std testing was too early just a mere 3 weeks post encounter. you can trust your gonorrhea and chlamydia testing but all others will need repeated later on.  you can test for syphilis after 6 weeks. herpes, hiv and hepatitis testing can be done after 3 months post encounter.

you are + for hsv1 as most adults are . if you can't recall symptoms either orally or genitally, odds are your hsv1 is oral like it is for most adults.  http://www.ashastd.org/std-sti-works/Herpes/oral-herpes.html  has terrific info on oral  herpes for more reading.
