why after 2 months of sex?

assuming we already talked about our status beforehand

did they get bad news?

Well theres talking about and actually seeing proof. Also this is an open relationship, so one or both of the people may be having sexual relations with other people. Maybe they just want updated results.

Ouch they should be taking more than just that test, herpes is real

I just read it was a pretty accurate test

but you are in the health industry, is actually not that accurate?

I googled

As with all human herpes viruses, once an individual is infected with the herpes simplex virus, or HSV, he or she is infected for life. The presence of antibodies against herpes simplex means an individual is currently infected with the virus. A positive antibody test does not indicate merely that one has been “exposed” to HSV. Nor does it mean you are immune to the virus, without active infection.

The presence of antibodies for HSV-2, the most common cause of genital herpes, almost always indicates genital herpes infection with the type 2 virus. We know that genital HSV-2 infection involves almost continuous shedding of virus from the genital tract. Therefore, the potential of transmission to uninfected sexual partners is always present. HSV-2 outbreaks represent only a small fraction of activated virus that is present.

Although the median number of outbreaks with HSV-2 infection is four to six per year, many outbreaks go unrecognized. Indeed, 70 percent of individuals with no self-reported history of outbreaks begin to identify recurrences once they are educated about the subtle signs and symptoms of genital herpes recurrences. Women, for example, may have only minor itching, and the symptoms may be even milder in men.

Serologic, or blood, testing allows us to screen individuals for infection with herpes simplex. The new tests for herpes, called type-specific serologic tests, distinguish between HSV-2 and HSV-1, the other type of herpes simplex virus. These newer tests detect IgG antibodies directed against the cell wall protein specific for HSV-1 or HSV-2. Older serologic tests did not reliably distinguish between HSV-1 and HSV-2 and, as a result, were not a reliable way to make a diagnosis of genital herpes.

Like all tests, the type-specific tests are not perfect. It takes about three to six weeks for individuals to develop detectable antibodies for herpes simplex. Virtually everyone will have detectable antibodies by 16 weeks.

Get tested again if you have a recent exposure that falls within the window period. This also means that a first-time recognized outbreak may represent a new infection and may be occurring during a period in which your body has not yet developed a detectable antibody response. Again, the recommendation would be to get a repeat serologic test in four to eight weeks.


_____________________________


Is a blood test for genital herpes usually included when I ask to be tested for "everything" (all STDs)? Why does CDC recommend testing for other STDs but not herpes?

Herpes type 2 blood testing may or may not be included in a full STD evaluation, as STD testing depends on a number of factors, such as behavioral risk factors (e.g. number of partners, consistent condom use, etc.) and how common the infection is in the community. When getting an evaluation, it is important to ask your provider which infections are being tested for, which infections are not being tested for, and why. STD screening tests are usually done for infections that can have serious outcomes if they are left untreated. For example, finding and treating curable STDs like chlamydia can prevent those infections from leading to serious complications, such as infertility (the inability to get pregnant) in women. Genital herpes infections can cause intermittent symptoms that may be uncomfortable, but infection does not usually result in serious complications in healthy adults. Although the symptoms of genital herpes can be treated with medication, there is currently no cure for herpes infections. HSV blood testing may be useful for people seeking an STD evaluation, but CDC does not currently recommend routine HSV testing in someone with no symptoms suggestive of herpes infection. People who are specifically concerned about genital herpes should discuss with their healthcare providers whether they would benefit from testing.

Wouldn’t testing everyone for HSV limit the spread of genital herpes?

For STDs that can be cured with antibiotics, including syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia, an important public health prevention strategy is to quickly identify and treat infected persons.  When these infected people are treated and cured, future spread of the infection is prevented. However, genital herpes causes an incurable, chronic lifelong infection. It is not clear that the identification of persons with HSV infection would decrease the spread of HSV in the population. There is no evidence that detection of HSV infection through testing of persons with no symptoms suggestive of herpes leads to a change their sexual behavior. Because the tests can be expensive and the diagnosis may have adverse psychological or effects for some people, widespread testing for HSV is not currently recommended.

when I was working at a dr.office, I think most people found out because they were having some type of other medical issue and their blood was tested.
