Just saw doctor and set up western blot blood test. So I get to stress out over that the next few days. However, another question I have is; can I carry hsv1 and hsv2 both orally? Doctor said I could, and I haven’t read that anywhere.
What causes the false positives? I read that people with hsv1 are more likely to have false positives than people without, so is there some sort of cross connectivity between the two where a high hsv1 can skew a hsv2 result?
(I’ll count tbat as my 2 follow up questions since Ill know in a few weeks anyway my hsv2 results)
Thanks for the service you provide.
