I've taken two test -1 hsv-2. The first test I took right

Customer Question

I've taken two test for hsv-1 hsv-2. The first test I took right after possible exposure. The 2nd test I recently took 4 months after. Both came back negative however the first test result had a lower number and the second test result came back with <.91 negative. Does this mean that my body is gradually building anti-bodies for the virus? Should I still be worried about possibly having it?

It all means negative.

You have never contracted the virus.
