HSV 1 confusion
0 Replies
notquitesure - February 9

So about a month ago, I was dating this guy and we wanted to start having sex without a condom so we both went in to get tested for all STD's. I tested positive in a blood test for HSV 1 and the doctor said it was located genitally. The thing is I've never had an outbreak what-so-ever and I'm not sure how the doctor knew it was genital.
The doctor talked to me like it was a big deal but I've been going to support groups and they say that I should learn more about it because my case sounds like it might not actually be as big of deal as I thought.
So my questions:
Does the herpes select test specify where the antibodies are found?
Should I consider myself as part of the H community?
I'm just so confused as to if i really have an STD or not. Any imput would help :]
