Hi and thanks for posting.
Genital herpes (herpes simplex virus, HSV) is very common in the general population. Having HSV does not mean that you have HIV, however having genital HSV means that you've been exposed to a sexually transmitted infection, and I'd recommend having HIV testing as part of your routine health care.
