thanks for the answers so far. To clarify, she most likely got HSV from somebody recently, we haven’t seen each other since May. We are not in a relationship, not an exclusive one anyway.
Now that we plan to meet again, wiht the above questions I’m trying to understand
1 – Whether I am already positive to HSV 2 (and the answer seems to be “we can’t tell for sure” despite the 3 low positives for IgG)
2 – Whether it can be ascertained if her outbreak was HSV 1 or HSV 2 (she was swab-tested during the outbreak and they said she was positive to both)
3 – What can we afford to do when we meet and can we mitigate the risks (e.g. she takes antivirals, we both take them, protected sex only etc)
