Probably all is OK: In your country, probably 90% of people have results like yours, i.e. positive for HSV1, HSV2, or both. It's one reason experts recommend against testing. Certainly having HSV does not mean someone cannot have sex or get married. Also, many HSV2 positive results are false. Consult with an STI or GUM specialst about your particular situation. Good luck!
