    False positives

    My blood test was negative for type 2 but swab test was positive for type 2. Doc explained the infection may be new and isn't showing up in blood yet. I've been reading about false positives and different test called Western Blot. Anyone heard of this?
  2. Hi all, I am a journalist writing a story about herpes screening and testing. As many of you know, it can be very challenging to get a straight answer when it comes to an HSV1 or HSV2 diagnosis. Unfortunately, however, the pros and cons of herpes tests are far from common knowledge — an issue I will be addressing in my piece. I've found that stories sink in best when I can include some first person perspective, and was hoping that some of you would be willing to share your testing experiences with me. I am particularly interested to speak with anyone who has had a false positive test or any asymptomatic individuals who have dealt with excessive challenges/anxiety in pursuit of an accurate diagnosis. We can protect your identity, as I know this may be a challenging topic to discuss publicly. If you'd be willing to chat with me about what you've gone through, please shoot me an email at Lindzi.Wessel@statnews.com. Thanks so much!
