Herpes testing question

4 posts in this topic

Not to long ago i went to they gyno to be tested for herpes but i'm really confused!!!!! I didn't have any symptoms and it had been about 4 months since i had been with the person (that i just found out had known that he has had it since the summer Jerk!!!!) The doctor tested me for clamidya,gonnarehea, hiv, and then he said he was gonna do a separate test for the herpes. He just used a swab and swab all around down there and told me that it would tell me if i was a carrier of herpes. But I thought you had to have a blood test if you didn't have any lesions???? I didn't say anything to the doctor at the time because i was sooo nervous and scared!! Anyways he said it would take about 2 weeks to get the results back and they came out neg. The only reason i'm nervous again is because i found out the guy i was with was lying to me when he said that he had just shown signs and i guess he had gotten it over the summmer!!!!!!!!!! I got a bill in the mail and it said DNA Probe?? but i'm not sure what kind of test was given to me.... i"M about to call and ask.

The only STD test that I know of that test for DNA is HIV.

HIV/AIDS testing is worthless for 3 months window period. Some people can take as long as 6 months to show antibodies for HIV/AIDS. Many people with HIV don't have symptoms. Test again at 6 months for 100% accuracy.

no outbreak - no swab - only blood testing.

      @_Garden_girl You got to do what you need to do! It does sound like he knew he had it and took no precautions at all to protect you and that's very very fucked up! You have every right to be mad as hell..If he knew that he had it then it really is nothing short of sexual abuse to lie and not wear a condom. In my opinion, what he did is worse than stealthing as you did not consent to the risk of hsv (again, if he knew he had it). You do sound very level-headed and I would certainly encourage you to be composed. As you said, confronting him isn't going to change your diagnosis, but it may prevent it from happening to someone else...and more importantly, people who do bad things need to be held accountable and he should know what he did was wrong.  I rambled a bit...but say what you need to in order to move-on.  I'm sorry you're in this situation. You'll be fine

      Yeah, we're about to kill ourselves as our physical and emotional pain torture us every day while solution could be close... It's all about money after all and our governments don't care. Frustrating! http://aurx.com/2016/10/05/hello-world/

      The igG used to be very suspect and still seems to get it wrong many times. Certainly the survey parts are almost completely unreliable. Never said 1% prevalence...I'm not going to guess.. My point on this thread is only that it's silly to think that prevalence can be so high (on this thread some suggest everyone has genital hsv) and yet transmission so low (it's suggested transmission can be as low as 1% a year above).  They don't want to misestimate. Welcome to humanity where much is uncertain and many errors are made! We all can.

      My quality of life has been demolished. We now have to bear through the rest of our life with no prospect of escaping it. Every morning the first thing I think about is HSV, as I feel burning aching pain. It robs you of laughter, love, motivation,and any hope for a better future to work towards. Everything I do now, I'm teased of what I could have enjoyed if I didn't have this.

      Extremely unlikely that he would become infected from the activity you describe. Essentially zero chance.

      Makes no sense. The studies are as the studies do. What flawed test are you talking about? What point are you making. The statistics are reliable and interpretable. If you want to believe that only 1% of people have HSV or whatever it is you're trying to say, fine, say it and move on. Why on god's earth would anyone want to misestimate the prevalence of any disease? Schoolboy ignoramus stuff mate - you can do better.
