What If Herpes Was Detected But You Were Negative For Both Hsv-1 And 2? What Does That Mean?

Is it possible that you have been exposed but your body is fighting back? Or could it be a false reading..?

Answer

Hi Paige,

I'd like to answer your question, but I don't really understand. If you tested negative, how was the herpes "detected"? Are you having symptoms? Please explain a bit more.
