Hello. Boyfriend got IgG results back. HSV-1: 33.20 type specific ab.
HSV-2: <.90 so NEGATIVE.
He said he’s had HSV-1 orally for as long as he can remember. Infected as a small child. Sometimes gets cold sores. Never any symptoms downstairs that he recalls. No clue how I got this genitally from him having it orally?? Guessing he has it genitally and didn’t break out or not enough to notice.
Why is his a reading so high? Mine was HSV-1: 5.08 IgG type specific ab, with a supposed NEW infection.
Lastly, can there be lesions on the urethra and on the bladder that cause urinary issues? Constant urge to pee, but no pain and urine culture was clean for UTI etc.
