Can you get me the index values that go along with these test results please? They are specific numbers, not just positive negative.
Were you diagnosed with HSV 1 genitally by swab test that was typed as HSV 1? You may never have another outbreak of HSV 1 genitally if you’ve not had an outbreak in 15 years. That’s great. There is an 88% chance you will not have another genital HSV 1 outbreak again.
The IgM test is completely worthless and has frequent false positives and should never done to aid in the diagnosis of genital herpes, in my opinion.
If you do indeed only have HSV 1 genitally, the odds of you passing it to your partner via intercourse is way less than 3%. The transmission rate for HSV 2 with no treatment from female to male is 4% per year, half that with treatment. So with the HSV 1 is a fraction of that. Has your partner had an IgG antibody test to determine if they are indeed negative for HSV 1? Over the half the population has HSV 1. Ask if he has ever in his life had a cold sore. If yes, then he doesn’t need testing (different from canker sores). If says no, then he needs testing to clarify as most of those infected with both HSV 1 and 2 don’t know they are infected. If he gives you oral sex and acquires your HSV 1, then he would get it orally not genitally. And the chances that he would get infected if he isn’t already while you are on suppression is really small.
