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?
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.
