I recently was tested during my last gynecologist appointment that I was positive for gonorrhea and have since got treated. Now I have realized that my previous sexual partner gave me gonorrhea. He had herpes 1 and did not test positive for gonorrhea. My sexual partner before that have tested negative for everything. I am wondering would his herpes 1 infection would be transferred to me as a gonorrhea infection? And can herpes 1 be detected through a vaginal swab STD test or would I have to get blood work done?
I have gone through your case. First, you need to understand that any infection is transmitted as it is. No infection can be transferred as another infection. So answer to your first question is no it is not possible for herpes 1 infection to be transferred as gonorrhea. And for your second question yes you can undergo blood test evaluation as well for herpes confirmation. IgM and IgG (immunoglobulin M and G) for HSV1 and HSV2 (herpes simplex virus) are the tests recommended.
