RPR - Syphilis : Non-reactive - your test is negative.
HIV 1 Antibodies : Non-reactive. (%75 the lab said on the phone) - your test is negative.
also on the page was :
Antibodies IgG Index = Negative 1.09
Your Screening Test for Herpes 1 IgG is POSITIVE.
Your Screening Test for Herpes 2 IgG is NEGATIVE.

-I would appreciated to know please what is Non-reactive really means,and if you suggest I should retest for HIV 1 if yes how long i should wait to retest,also I did not notice any symptoms or anything different about my body from herpes or nether hiv till this day 05/22/09

non reactive is negative.
Here are the right testing times for unprotected encounters:
Gonorrhea and chlymida- 1 week post exposure
Syphilis-6 weeks
HIV-3 months
Herpes-4 months
Testing at the above times will give you 100% conclusive results.

Any follow up questions on herpes of HIV need to be posting in the correct forums. See the link above, they will have the best info on follow up questions.
