I'm very confused and desperate for info!!!


Recommended Posts

Hello, thank you for viewing my questions. I last had sex four months ago. I am not sure if my partner had herpes or not. Just about a week ago, i started to experiance some of the symptoms of gential herpes like the redness, itching, and little bumps(barely noticable bumps). I went to my doctor and she said that it looked like what herpes would look like, but she did no test to see if it was herpes. She told me that it is possible that it could be herpes, but there could be a chance that it isnt.

I am starting to doubt that what i have is herpes because i have researched it a bit. I have viewed pictures of normal genital herpes, and it doesnt look quite the same. Also, i read that herpes can lay dormant in your system for usually a week to a month. Is it possible, that in my case, the herpes laid dormant for four months? Four times the usual dormant time period?

Please respond and help me!!

Hi, I just found out I have H on june 22. I felt pain down there, very small sores but nothing really,it felt like the skin was rubbed raw, but after that I had my yearly exam, I asked them to test me for all STDs, just because iv never been tested, they called me and said im sorry but you tested positive for herpes, I almost had a heart attack, well actually i just cried for 3 days, but anyway,. herpes can do all kinds of things, look all different ways. my doc called it the great imitator. oh and i had not had sex in 3 or 4 months also. and i think i maybe got it 10 months ago. I dont understand why your doc didnt take blood, to see if you have antibodies for H,. then you will know for sure. if they didnt do that, go back in and say you want a blood test for H. I know its hard but try not to stress out, if it is H, we are all here for you on this site, let me know what happens and how your doing....

      @EssenceL25 there really isn't a question mark around the source, it's your latest partner. The median time from infection to an outbreak of lesions upon initial infection is 4 days.  The only thing that isn't certain is the type I suggest.

      I asked if it was hsv 1 or 2 and the doctor said it was Hsv2. I’m not sure i just asked him when he was tested last he said this year I said I think we should go test together and he agreed . I’m going to bring it up again cause I really need to know if he gave this to me I wasn’t sure since it was so close to my previous relationship.

      @EssenceL25 then it is all beyond reasonable doubt that the current partner is the source. A 'perfect' fit in terms of timing, symptoms and swab. It may be though that the type is not technically known. Culture swabs are very often not typed and just assumed to be HSV-2 if taken from a genital location. If you received oral sex in the days leading into 7 March then it is 50/50 as to whether this is HSV-1 or HSV-2. You could contact your doctor and confirm if the swab was actually typed (which is a second test where fluorescent antibodies for HSV-1 and HSV-2 are added and see which one 'glows').  If that test wasn't done then you do not know type. If you have oral HSV-1 yourself (cold sores) then this will be HSV-2. Does your partner have oral HSV-1? It is somewhat strange for him not to rush and test - many people have a 'reaction' if they truly do not know their status and have concerns that you infected them etc. (not initially rational of course). This indicates he may know his status - or maybe he just isn't simply the sharpest tool in the shed!?

      I had flu like symptoms and ulcers on my vagina . They did a culture and I tested positive for hsv2. I asked my partner to get tested he agreed but I’m not sure if he will cause he hasn’t said anything else about it.
