yes and no.  No one should be doing the old fashioned titer testing on blood test for herpes. Some folks do still refer to it as titer testing though even when it's not the same test they are using.

clear as mud?

I can best help you if I see all the results of your blood tests.

also - we always appreciate it when you keep all your questions in the same thread instead of starting new ones each time :)  Just makes it easy to scan back thru all your prior posts without having to individually find them all.

if a person has herpes from about 20 years ago and has not had a breakout in 10 years and this person has unprotected sex can he transmitted to his partner?  They told him he can have sex  when he doesn't
have the outbreak that is safe and he cant transmitted it that way.   That the only way he can trasmitted is if he is having an outbreak.  please advise
