hsv 1 and 2 positive means that you have been exposed to both types of herpes at some point in your life. If a previous test 4 months ago was negative, it means the exposure was in the last 4 months. Type 1 usually causes cold sores but can also cause genital lesions and type 2 usually causes genital lesions but can also cause cold sores. There is no need to repeat the test.
