Last week I went and got tested for everything because I have a new partner. I tested positive for "exposure to herpes". The dr told me I had some anitbodies so I had probably been exposed to herpes at some point. But not to worry about it. He said I probably tested positive because maybe Ive had cold sores when I was a kid. Anyways Im worried I cant imagine ever testing positive for and STD and then being told "dont worry about it you're ok". I dont have any sores. I had strep throat and was on penicillin so I had a little yeast infection but nothing really serious. He offered to copy my test results for me but I was kind of in shock so I didnt take them tomorrow Im going to request my test results. In the meantime what does this mean? what should be my next test to find out?
I talked to my only other sexual partner and they said they just got checked and don't have herpes. How can this make sense?

I posted it in the healthcheck one too. I hope thats alright I was just hoping for the fastest reply. Today when I went to get a copy of my test results they said the doctor had taken them home with him to make a note. is that odd?

healthcheck or medhelp? Just seems like I already answered this on either webmd's std exchange or the medhelp herpes forum today hence why I asked.
