I want to know is the hsv virus dormant also? Can you have the virus and get a false-negative result when tested?

if enough time has passed, it's low risk of a false negative hsv2 igg. Hsv1 igg tests aren't quite as accurate.
Talking about std testing is NORMAL and something we all should be doing EVERY TIME before we have sex with a new partner :)
