The PCR blood test for herpes is useless. Herpes doesn't live in the blood.

You've already conclusively tested negative for herpes. You don't need anymore testing.

This is the my last test
Can you please suggest me

You don't need any more testing. You are negative. It doesn't matter what your partner's test was - yours is conclusively negative.

CSF testing is for other herpes conditions which you don't have. I can't say it any other way - you don't have it.
Thank you so much AJ ::)
You made my day
Have a nice DAY
