HELP Antivirals and negative blood test

Recommended Posts


Hi, I am new here, I was wondering for how long I have to take daily antivirals (acyclovir, my doctor sent me 3 pills per day since 5 months ago)  to get a negative blood test for genital herpes? Wich i got since almost 14 years ago... thanks!

If you've had it for 14 years it shouldn't be negative bloodwork. It usually is when first contracted from a pos swab, then people take antivirals and it messes with the antibody production for awhile. An established infection won't decrease in value but there is a thing called seroreversion. Usually happens when people are asymptomatic for a long time.
