Herpes testing question

Recommended Posts

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.

      No I didn't ever have hsv 1 before (was tested in spring). This was a recent exposure. The ex had an outbreak on his genitalia so I got tested. No symptoms but positive for hsv 1 now so how do I know if it's cold sores or gHSV1

      If you've never had any symptom I expect you prob have HSV1 from childhood and not genitally.

      I have hsv1, i got off of birth control about  9 months ago, so i dont think this can still be hormonal acne. Why is this happening too meee. Its just getting worse overtime and ive had this happening for a good 3 weeks now just getting worse and worse. They are mostly on my cheek area, but i will get occasional single pimples around hairline or forehead . This is the worst its been! Anyone else have had this issue ? Its gross

      yeah, I got HSV from him and HPV . I'm pretty sure the HPV is from him too but no way to be 100%. I have never tested positive for that before though. The coincidence is too much.   How to trust somebody?? I really don't need any more gifts.

      Since he has given your H then I advise you to make sure that  he's not giving New gift this time  ( another lovely virus) otherwise have sex as you like but not with ob's. I say that because it happened with so many people and I don't want to mane any. Thanks

      I'm so confused! My IgM was positive yesterday and today I found out the IgG test came back that I am negative for HSV2 but showed evidence of IgG for HSV 1 (she said I needed to retest in 3 months).  I've never had ANY symptoms ever. So do I tell people I have genital herpes or do I tell them I just have cold sores virus?  I have no way of know if I have it on my mouth or below! What do I do???
