#6. Does this 8% reflect both those who have and those who have not had recognizable herpes genital symptoms? Or do they account for only asymptomatic HSV2 carriers with false negatives?
#7. Why exactly is it that false-negatives occur?
We don’t know – some sort of test issue as the western blot has picked up those infections
#8. Does it have to do with the specific individual’s immune response or is the fallibility of the test itself?
#9. What would a herpetic case of cervicitis look like?
ulcerations on the cervix
#10. Does a prior, long-standing HSV1 infection affect the seropositivity and accurate and timely detection of HSV2 antibodies in an IGG blood test?
Prior HSV 1 can slightly slow the development of HSV 2 – perhaps by a few weeks.
