I'd just got my result for STD testing today. Everything came out negative except HSV-1 which was a 1.2. The person in the clinic told me that its better to retest because he cannot be sure that its HSV-1. HSV-2 result came out to be negtive. CAn anyone advise me of what to do? Than you.

u need to got back.I had the same results and my doctor made me come back in 3 months. She was positive I had herpes and started me on valtrex and then a week later the second set of blood tests came back negative for both types. From what i've read, if i'm understanding right,almost everyone will test positive for type I the first time due to exposure as a child,etc.Now, however, I think that i have herpes again,meaning i think again I have it, because i'm having the same symptoms i had those 3 months before in 2006 and am very angry and hurt cuz my bf's upset whom i've been with for almost 14 mths and told i didn't have it cuz my doc said i didn't. Apparently from what I've been reading it's possible to get a negative result and then positive years later. I don't want to believe this but i just read one woman who tested positive at 47 and was with her ex husband for 17 years and after the divorce a 2 year relationship and neither man tested positive. This would have to mean she got it before her husband about 19 years or so prior I assume and I can't believe it would take that long. She also stated she never had any symptoms at all. I've also read the longer you wait the better you have at having a negative result I'm still a little confused on that but I think that's a good thing. They suggested 16 wks but then advised one person by 8 wks if they still hadn't tested positive, i think they said this, that most likely you don't have it. I'm staring to believe there's really no way to tell. The virus lies dormant for some never expressing any symptoms. In my case if I have it, it lasted for almost 3 months straight the first time and then was gone for about a year and half and came back again and i'm 3 wks into feeling shitty again so I'm as clueless as you are. i'm sorry.

thanks for your input

I totally understand where your coming from...but however the doctor or anyone else have not suggested any medication. My story is short, i didn't have sex ever since january of this year, I would thought that the reading for HSV-1 would be much higher by now but instead it falls on the border line of being positive. I'm really worry now cause i recently met a new girl a couple months ago and we had been doing lots of oral sex. She was a virgin and i refuse to believe she had it or she'll definately deny that. If she end up having it b/c of me, i would hate myself. Has anyone or do u know of anyone in the similiar situation where they were tested at border line positive but turn out negative? This forum is doing a great thing for people who HSV, and hats off for all those who participate in this forum!

I answered your other thread, but don't discount the possibility your virgin girlfriend got oral herpes from an innocent kiss as a child -- that's how most people get it!

      In my case, the symptoms of keratitis appeared suddenly, while I was waiting for the bus on a bus stop. I had a feeling like something burst in my left eye. The eye immediately became red, very watery, painful and I couldn't look at the light. There was a hospital nearby, so in half an hour I had an appointment with an ophthalmologist who diagnosed keratitis and gave me a prescription for some eye drops. The instruction for the eye drops mentioned that this medicine was used against keratitis caused  the herpes virus. That's how I found out that my keratitis was a viral one. For the next 15 years I had relapses of the keratitis. I was lucky that the corneal clouding was far enough away from the pupils and didn't affect my vision. Since I started using the garlic solution 18 years ago, I've successfully been preventing any keratitis relapses which sometimes try to come back. In case of viral keratitis there's no discharge from the eyes. If you have some discharge, it may possibly mean that you have a bacterial infection which should be treated with antibiotics. The problem is in finding the right drug for your particular case, the particular antibiotics that can kill the infection in your eyes. Garlic has both anti-viral and antibacterial properties, so you can try this method, it won't do you any harm anyway. Make the garlic solution with water as described in my post above. Apply it to the closed eyelids every hour during the day and every 2 hours during the night. Two days will be enough to see if garlic has any affect in your case, whether it makes their condition any better. Try this and let me know how it goes, write to me at  vasilenko.igor@inbox.ru Kind regards, Igor Vasilenko

      Man, I think you need to meet people before you disclose to them. Having said that, I've disclosed via text and that worked for me with my ex girlfriend. We were together almost two years. Gotta get out there and take a few hits, to iron out your approach.

      Shit now I'm worried.   My partner had no symptoms, and never has and does not know status.   Has gone to be tested too.  Recently cleared of other std's but honestly we never discussed HSV.
