I just recieved my blood work resultes for Herpes Simplex, IGG. It states HSVIGG- TYPE 1 *>5.00 H and the same for HSVIGG- TYPE 2. I never had an outbreak or no symptoms at all, either has my boyfriend. We are not sure if he has it since he was not tested. But we are not sure who gave it to who but we are dealing with this together and figuring if i have it he does too. We do have oral sex and neither of us has gotten anything from that either. If i saw anything or he did we would have been checked immediatly but nothing was ever there. We have been together for a 1 1/2 years and live together so we see each other all the time and we never noticed anything!!!! I have not even had a cold sore in a year or so. I heard that you can spread it without having any symptoms, does this mean at any point in time it could be active? Oral sex a def. no? I am so confused about all this. I was tested in 2005 and was negative for type 2, and i had no symptoms since then. I am very cautious and this is why i don't understand and i never had an outbreak. I think i would know if i had something down there esp. since i shave. and i read the symptoms for internal and never had any of them either! I get a pap every 6 months due to having HPV which i just had to have a colposcopy done to make sure it is low grade and not high grade. I never had the warts just the cervical part. I think if i had something the dr would see it. Everything is ok with that, but now all this! Could this be a reason the numbers are high to give a false postive reading? Why are my numbers so high? Could it be incorrect? does it mean i have herpes type 2 down there? How does that affect us having kids and having sex to have kids? I am confused, and my doctors office will not tell me anything over the phone and i have to wait 2 weeks for an appointment!!!!!!!!!!! Also if i (we) do have it. . . what about when i (we) get a bath can the kids (we have 2 kids) get it that way, or by using the same wash cloth?
Thanks in advance
