4 month negative test

Recommended Posts

luckycharms1a

Hi all, new here...I had an unprotected oral and vaginal exposure to an HSV-2 positive female who told me after that she had herpes. I still can't believe she threw trust out the window like that. She also claimed to be on Valtrex. Anyway, I had oral sores and small blood blisters after and a couple wierd bumps on my upper thighs directly after. The problem I have now is that every bump I see I think is herpes. I have had negative igg tests at 2, 6, 9, 12, and 16 weeks. Never anything on my penis also. What should I do, keep testing or put it to bed.

16wks test is very reliable and conclusive for most people you are probably fine. Try again at 6 mo if you are REALLY paranoid but there is probably no need.

How do I explain away the symptoms I had and the little bumps i still feel like i get that were never there before?

You should go see a doctor if you have concerning symptoms a lot of things can be mistaken for herpes. If you really worried as i said retested at 6 month if you have lesions have them swabbed by PCR or viral culture by a doctor or your county std clinic.

      Give it a try and report back to us. It's pretty safe vaccine approved by the FDA.

      Have you tried changing your GP surgery? A decent doctor must surely realise that having back to back outbreaks warrants long term suppressive medication.  Aciclovir is available at very low cost to the NHS. I'd be firm with your doctor in what you'd like to do and make it clear you are educated on the relevant issues.  Don't be ashamed to talk to your GP. It is confidential.  FYI - walk in sexual health clinics (separate health record) are only as allowed to dispense a limited amount on the basis of episodic treatments.

      I agree, herpes doesn’t show up as discrete little dots like your pic.

      @Kurdt01Thank you! Very validating! And yes many doctors are so uninformed and misinformed it's incredibly frustrating.  ur right in multiple forums I've seen commenters invalidate someone's experience with herpes which is so weird. There's a wealth of experiences similar to both of ours but people put their hands to their ears and drill home "herpes is just a minor rash outbreak, nothing more."

      I got the zinc acetate from an pharmacy in my town, they can't sell reagents but I know the pharmacist. I cost me about 10 € a 50 gr bottle, enough for a decade at the current rate of consumtion. Otherwise it is quite easy to get, you can buy it from a laboratory or even in ebay. I apply the treatment on my glans about 2-3 times a week, I've never had any problem or adverse effect so far.
