I have recently tested positive for HSV-2 and negative for HSV-1.
This was very surprising to me because my previous partner has tested negative for both, as has my current partner.
When I was 12 I had a shingles (herpes zoster) outbreak.
Is there a possibility my positive result for HSV-2 may have been caused by my previous shingles outbreak?
