My vaginal swab detected hsv1 I have no lesions only pain and bloating in my pelvis. I have had a complete hysterectomy including the removal of my ovaries. I haven't been sexually active in over 12 months. Could the results be incorrect?

In brief: May be May be

What makes you suspect that the test result may be incorrect? More than 80% of the adults have HSV 1 infection and it can infect the genitals as well.
There is no cure for it, however, if you have symptoms, medication can generally control those.
