Thanks Terri! Really appreciate the quick reply.
Three more quick questions:
1.) Are false positives just as common with Oral HSV 1 as they are with HSV 2?
I seem to be mainly reading about false positives related to HSV 2.
2.) What is best way to go about western blot? Get a prescription from my doctor?
3.) Assuming I do hae Oral HSV 1 (I’m honestly 50/50 on it), do you recommend disclosing this to any potential sexual partners? I haven’t had symptoms and seeing as 75% of people have it, I am wondering how big of a deal it is. Honestly, I wish my doctor had never tested me for it, but now that I know I may have it I feel somewhat obligated to disclose.
