Look for lilannes post she asked the same question and she had a 5.0 as well. A man named Mr.smith replied to her with a good response. After reading his response. Basically I don't think it matters....I'm trying to figure out how I got it. My recent partner is being a complete jerk and won't get tested.

it's okay my bf won't go get tested either he said there's no point if I go get tested and am positive then he will but if I test and am negative he can't have anything. I keep trying to explain to him that while I may have it he won't and vice versa meaning if I don't have it he could and regardless if my result is negative he still needs to be tested to make sure. He's never had any tests in his life before and I know he's confident he has nothing because i'm the only girlfriend and sexual partner he's had in about 3 years, it still doesn't mean anything. I doubt he has anything either because something more in likely would've popped up by now but you never know.

gal24,

A proper Herpes test has two results, one for HSV1 and one for HSV2, thus the term 'type specific' test.

If you have a single result for IgG I/II, then it means it was a combination test. A combination test isn't much help cause it can't tell you exactly what you have. And since over 60-80% of the world population has oral HSV1, they'll test positive on a combination test.

Hope this helps.

Regards

Mr Smith

      When I broke out/ shed it usually was on my backside left side, my  upper crack or back right below the belt! Doggy style is my absolute favorite position which makes him very vulnerable! I think there definitely is an advantage to wearing some sexy clothes or latex! Or even the liquid gloves. I think the biggest problem is that people shave now and they nick and cut themselves! That leads them open for infection on any part of the boxer area!

      I’d build on this to say that the volume of virus is critical. It has been observed that shedding instances where there are 10^7 virions are required for a pragmatic chance to actually get through the skin and it’s natural defences. Most shedding instances are well below this threshold. I’d also suggest that for many asymptomatic transmissions, most of the virus comes to the surface during the sexual act itself. So little point testing beforehand.

      Thank you for sharing that. Very resourceful.

      I wasn't following the conversation closely, but yes, all that matters in terms of being contagious is if the virus makes it to the skin.

      @Cas9 isn't that a "technicality"? From the sound of it this means that on a cellular level there is a daily battle but at the end of the day the virus can't transmit until it is present on the skin... right? I mean the question will still be: how many days is the virus present and transmittable. The mechanism (the technicality) is important but also not important... but I could be wrong, just trying to interpret.
