Thank you! I have another question, but about my HSV 2 test. I tested 11 weeks after the last sexual contact with this person and my HSV 2 test was negative. Should I do a retest or can I be pretty sure of that result? Let’s say my HSV 1 positive result is real, would it be just as likely that I could be one of the 8% that the HSV 2 test doesn’t detect?
