Oops, sorry I got the HPV and HSV mixed up.

I was referring to HSV (Herpes) - type 1 is not part of the regular raft of STD testing that is done. If that is something that you care about in a partner, you need to make sure that you yourselves have got tested.

Because HSV1 are cold sores, something that a lot of people have had at one time in their lives or another.

This is why I feel that it is very important to look into the details of what exactly is being tested, and to communicate that very specifically to any prospective partners. I doubt that neither of you have ever had any disease in your lives - if so you would be extremely rare among the human race.
