Here is my question. I just went for routine STD testing because I like to be responsible. I just started a new relationship. I have not been with anyone prior to this new person in over a year, and was with my last boyrfriend for 4 years. I was monogamous but he was not! (thus he is no longer my boyfriend :). So i got my test result as follows:
HSV 1 IGM screen and HSV 2 IGM screen both negative
HSV 1/2 IGG, type specific AB Herpeselect:
HSV 1 IGG: .10
HSV 2 IGG 2.60
HSV 2 IGG, Heperselect W/REFL HSV2 Inhibition: 2.60
HSV2 IGG In hibition, Elisa: Positive
so here is why i am baffled -- I know I should be positive for herpes 1 - i have had fever blister and cold sores as a child not in over 30 years but who hasn't had this when younger.
2 I have never ever had any symptoms of genital herpes, no recurrent yeast infections, no lesions, no tingling , no fever, no nothing .
I am not sure what these results mean or why i would care, i understand this is not a life threatening disease, it certainly has not affected me in any way shape or form, so i would not go on any medication for it. What would be odds i would spread this (i have never known any partners to be symptomatic in my past) without ever remotely having any symptoms? basically, the only thing is had changed is I have a positive blood result, because i asked for a std screen. Could it be false positive? the dr. assures me that my results are accurate and I definitely have this. true?
please give me your opinion
