so im very confused i got genital herpes in January never been checked but i knew i had it ,,outbreak was horrific and iv had an outbreak since always on my buttock near the anus.. i got these results today but im so confused at to what it means can someone help me please 

You have tested positive for: 
- Herpes Simplex I antibodies 

You have tested negative for: 
- Herpes Simplex II antibodies 

This result only demonstrates that you have the antibodies for Herpes Simplex I. This is a very common result and does not indicate that you require treatment - it only demonstrates that you have come into contact with the virus at some point.

Back in January, prior to your outbreak, did someone perform oral sex on you?  If they did, and based on your test results, it suggests that you may have genital HSV1.  

You should have your current butt outbreak swabbed/tested to identify if it is HSV1 or 2.

I'm guessing that your test was an IGG, best to verify.    

What was your initial outbreak like that makes you believe it was herpes?  'how many have you had since?

HSV1 is most commonly associated with oral herpes, but seems like many can acquire it through oral if they were never exposed to HSV1 earlier in life.  Do you ever remember having cold sores?  That would indicate the test results if you did.  

I think the only way to be certain is to have the next outbreak swab tested to rule out, or confirm.

It sounds to me like you have a genital HSV 1 infection which generally you get very minimal reoccurrence is about breaks but if you do I suggest you go and get the blister swabbed to be doubly sure.  

When they do a blood test and it comes up positive it means that you have had it for longer than 3 months So think about when you last had oral sex and your first outbreak

      Do you shop at Amazon.com? Next time you shop, you can also automatically donate a portion of the proceeds to the Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society.  This Society organizes the symposium on latency of herpes viruses.  It was here that Keith Jerome announced that he had edited almost 20%-30% of latent HSV in mice last year. (http://www.ucdenver.edu/academics/colleges/medicalschool/departments/neurology/CALS/Documents/2018 CALS abstracts.pdf) You have to go through smile.amazon.com to set up ongoing donations whenever you shop through smile.amazon.com. ____________________________________________________________________________________________ Yes, I understand that I must always start at smile.amazon.com to support Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society. Why is there a separate URL? The AmazonSmile program offers customers a new benefit, making a donation to your favorite charity.

      WOW, it's true.  So cool!  Thanks for sharing. In my view, for the time being, we can just help support the Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society, rather than asking Fred Hutch to set something up through Amazon.   Here is an important message though, you have to go through smile.amazon.com to do the donation. According to them:     Yes, I understand that I must always start at smile.amazon.com to support Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society. Why is there a separate URL?
