I'm a 25 yo male and tested positive for genital HSV 1 5 months ago after receiving oral sex. My partner didn't have cold sore at the time we had oral sex and the only symptoms I developed afterwards were urinal tract infection with no sores on penis and common cold symptoms.
I went to the doctor's and he told me it looked just like a normal UTI but he did swab inside my urinal to get tested. He prescribed me some antibiotics and two days after I had it my symptoms started to disappear.
One week later the doctor called me and said hsv 1 was detected from the swab test.
I have read that almost all that are infected with genital herpes will develop sores and lesions if there are symptoms but I didn't and my partner did not have a cold sore at the time. I know that maybe my partner was shedding the virus but do you think It would be a false positive and if I need further testing to confirm hsv 1 infection?
If further testing is not needed, since I didn't even develop sores in the initial outbreak, will I never develop sores if outbreaks occur in the future? Given that OBs are going to be milder than the initial outbreak
Thanks for your input.
