Thank you for your response! I have talked to my boyfriend and he is going to get tested. I do not know what his herpes status was prior to our dating. I know this is super irresponsible but herpes has never been on my radar. I do want to clarify some of my questions. If I were to get retested and say my index would be hsv2 >5, does this indicate that it is probably a recent infection since I tested 2.3? I’m trying to understand the whole seroconversion process. Have I been with my current partner long enough to have a positive blood test (if I am truly positive)? Have you seen many false positives in the 2.3 range? I read somewhere that a new sex partner could cause dormant herpes to start causing symptoms. I just find it puzzling that I was fine after my last partner in 2014. I hadn’t had sex since then and all of a sudden once I start again, “symptoms” begin. Yes, I was diagnosed with both BV and trich via lab work. My boyfriend and I were both treated. My ideal situation would be that I’m having recurrent BV and yeast infections and none of it has to do with herpes.
