First, have another HSV-2 blood test, specifically with
the IgG test. Second, do not start suppressive treatment with valacyclovir
and do not start taking the drug the next time you have genital ulcer(s); instead, see a health care provider immediately (within a day) if new ulcers appear, so the lesions can be tested for HSV.
Finally, if your partner's HSV-2 diagnosis also is based only on an IgM test, he also should be retested by IgG only.
