    Tested positive for HSV 1 (score of 1.86)?
    An_258240 posted:
    Two days ago, I completed IGG tests for HSV 1 and HSV 2, and checked for other STDs. All came up negative, except HSV 1 came to 1.86. I decided to get the tests because my partner and I agreed we both would be tested. I have slept with about a dozen different women over the past 2.5 years.I had protected sex at all times except last May. I do not have any lesions or symptoms on my skin, and never had. However, I had a sore throat at the time I took my STD test (my kids also had colds at that time). Over the past 6 weeks, I have kissed (made out) with 3 women. Does this combination of lifestyle and score of 1.86 mean I have HSV 1? I'm really scared.
