I have recently gotten into my first relationship. My boyfriend and I are both virgins, and haven’t even kissed anyone until I started dating my current boyfriend. We recently had the STI talk, and during this talk, I remembered a cold sore I had 5+ years ago. I honestly had forgotten all about it until now. I am planning on getting tested for STIs, just to be safe, but I read that STI testing doesn’t usually test for HSV. What do STI tests usually test for? Should I be concerned about the cold sore I had 5+ years ago? I never went to the doctor for it at the time, so I never got a diagnosis. I haven’t had another cold sore since. Any help/ advicewould be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
