So the number doesn’t matter at all? Like it doesn’t get higher when there is an outbreak/right after an outbreak etc? My doctor seemed to think that’s what it reflected. By well established, does that mean this has probably been in my body for a long time? The 2019 tests were done by a different lab, and the swab was for something on my genitals. That swab and blood igg both were negative at the time.
As for now, I’m just waiting and seeing if I develop a sore and will go get it swabbed to see if this is oral or genital. Until then, do I just proceed with life as normal? I have other symptoms like the burning upon urination and just overall weird feeling in my genital area but I also get so many UTIs, yeast infections and other infections and have not noticed a sore. Its possible to never have a sore but to have these other symptoms right?
I’m just trying to be as safe as possible when proceeding with my partner who has a positive HSV1 oral infection. Thank you for your help 🙂
