Hey @Franky26 did your wife get a confirmation test such as an ELISA with values or Westernblot.

In terms of the relationship, you ignore HSV. Let your wife control those times when she can't have sex owing to a suspected outbreak. Otherwise no need to worry about it or talk about it etc.

So, according to you , no need to be concerned about spreading the virus to a partner during infectious  

times of viral shedding ?

Explain.

If you didn’t get values then you’re having the wrong test. Did you try to seek a Westernblot?

Wilson, I have a previous Igg numbers 

Hsv1  18.7

Hsv2  8.32

 

I take it 1.1 is positive? If so that’s a firm positive and no further testing is required.

It is what it is and readily managed by couples in your position.
