TeenHealthFX cannot answer your question completely due to lack of background information provided. If you recently had a blood test conducted, FX encourages you to contact the doctor who conducted the test. He/she will be able to interpret your results, and inform you if further action/treatment is necessary for your health. If you are attempting to interpret lab results for a friend/partner, FX suggests that you encourage this individual to contact his/her doctor.

HSV2 is an abbreviation for Herpes Simplex Virus. According to Planned Parenthood, more than half of Americans have oral herpes and 1 in 6 Americans has genital herpes. Herpes is spread from skin-to-skin contact with infected areas, often during vaginal sex, oral sex, anal sex, and kissing. Some people carry the herpes virus, yet can go for some time without showing any symptoms. When symptoms do occur, it is usually in the form of itchy, painful blisters or sores that come and go.

You did not indicate whether or not you are sexually active. However, TeenHealthFX feels it would be a good idea for you to check out our Resource of the Month: Planned Parenthood Resources on Safer Sex so you can learn about sexual readiness, birth control, STDs, pregnancy tests, emergency contraception, myths and facts about sex and more. The more educated you are and the more precautions you take when it comes to being sexually active, the less likely you will find yourself in a situation where you are dealing with an unwanted pregnancy or the transmission of an STD.

If you don't have a doctor and live in northern New Jersey, you can call the Adolescent/Young Adult Center for Health at 973-971-5199 for an appointment with an adolescent medicine specialist or contact your local teen health center or Planned Parenthood. You can also contact your insurance company for a list of in-network providers.
