I got an STD test and im unsure what the results mean. I tested positive for HSV 1.10. Is that HSV 1? Common cole sores?
Depends on the Test. There are 2 tests for hsv. Both have a threshold of 1.10. This means that you were positive for hsv if your value was greater than 1.1. You would be positive for hsv1 if they used a type 1 test. You would be positive for hsv2 if they used a type 2 test.
10% Roughly 10% of genital herpes is from hsv-1. Treatment the same, less overall outbreaks over time which is good but oral sex is the likely reason u got it. Good luck and don't feel permanently contaminated. It can start to make u feel bad about yourself but up to 30% of adults have exposure to hsv-2 and 70% don't know. If on blood test then prob from mouth, sorry for earlier confusion.
