    Asymptomatic HSV contracted after testing HSV 1 and 2 IGG neg?
    An_247900 posted:
    I was tested in Feb 2009 and was negative on both HSV 1 and 2 IGG. I then slept with five girls AFTER i was tested within the next year. They all were short relationships and they all said they were "tested for everything" before we had sex,.... So now wondering if one of these "tested" girls was not tested for HSV and could have given it to me, and I could be asymptomatic. I haven't seen these girls in two years, and I have had no symptoms, bug bites, rashes, pimples, razor burn, itching etc.

    I read only 20-25% of people truly have no symptoms to newly acquired HSV 2 infections; 50% didn't recognize symptoms because they were mild, (or denial); 20-25% have obvious classic symptoms.

    I read people previously known to have NO antibodies to either virus have it worse when they get it...So I was hoping that me getting it since the last time i was tested till now and having zero symptoms would be a small chance.
