Apparently HSV1 positive by swab?

Recommended Posts

Bluevibes

So all along I thought my Dr had ran blood work and i tested positive for only HSV 1 ..just contacted her and she said i only had a swab done. So now I'm not sure if my diagnoses should I confirm with a blood test or should i just move on..I've had frequent outbreaks but I've always been depressed and stressed prior to me finding out ( other issues) or is this swab test the real deal ..last time I had sexual intercourse was at 7 years ago...she said the swab test was sensitive at picking anything up..now I'm thinking should I just let it be or should I go somewhere else and get a IGG test to confirm thanks

I don't think you need to retest. I was told positive swabs are very accurate.

if you have had frequent OBs around your lips mean you got it. It is not the end, but I understand how bad it feels (specially the emotional part :() Talk to your doctor to give you suppressive treatment and see how your body reacts.

      I’m not following mate. You simply do not have herpes. Do you care if your partner has herpes? Has she tested?

      I know it’s genitalia because I had my outbreak there and sore was swabbed as hsv1 genitalia.

      Hey mate, really glad you sought out the swab. Regardless of what it all is, I hope it clears and you get back to your normal self soon.
