I tested negative for HSV1 in 3/06 and again in 2/09.
In 4/09 I had an OB that was swabbed. It came back + for HSV2.
I was dumbfounded. My partner is testing negative and I havent been sexual with anyone other then him for almost 2 yrs.
I will let some one here comment on your results as the same thing happened to me, that happened to you.
I just wanted to reach out and let you know that there are people here who are going through the same thing.
Thanks tom52. I'm really confused. I know the viral swab is accurate since it was done during an outbreak but the blood work is confusing. From what I've been reading it seems negative means its too new to show up but i'm not sure. Good luck to you also
