Question that I'm requesting expert opinion
Anon_10973 posted:
Is it possible to have herpes but it not show up on a blood test? In 2007 I was told I had genital HSV-1 ...showed positive from a culture when I went to dr with problem I thought was yeast infection. I have not had any other issues and have had 2 blood tests since and my doctor said no antibodies were found to HSV-1 or 2. He said in his medical opinion I have not been exposed because it is a very sensitive test and there were no antibodies either time.
I am not sure of my status. Was the first test a false positive or were the next two false negatives? Very confused.

To Confirm your satus get a Western Blot test done to see what you do or do not have. This can be done at the labs.
