First, the screening test that was done for HSV 1 or you misses 1-2 cases out of 10 so it is possible that you are infected with HSV 1 and the test missed it.
It is difficult to say what your risk of acquiring HSV 1 is because I am assuming we don’t know the location of her infection, or do you? Did you report that she has cold sores? Sores on her face don’t necessarily mean she has facial/oral herpes, does it>
The area on your arm looks like a bruise from the blood draw – happens about 1 out of 9 times with a blood draw. It is caused by bleeding under the skin. This happens when the hole from the needle doesn’t close up immediately and a little blood comes out under the skin.
If you tested negative at the 5th week, there is a good chance you will stay that way, but you can’t be too certain until 16 weeks. And then, as I told you the test misses 1-2 out 10 cases of HSV 1. The herpes western blot is better for HSV 1.
I don’t think so. You are looking carefully for symptoms – there isn’t much else that you can do. Also, about 56% of the US population between the ages of 14 and 49 have HSV 1 infection so it is very common.
