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.

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.

      Anyone heard of this research before? Dutch professor promoted in September 2017 on it and had some interesting results on patients with severe HSV1 symptoms. (last alinea) "Healing severe cold sore
      Arts achieved a remarkable success in research into three patients with a herpes infection. An infection with a herpes virus is common and leads to, for example, a cold sore. In the three patients, the symptoms were much heavier with ulcers throughout the face. Genetic research yielded three different genetic defects, but functional research showed that all three patients had a shortage of the antibody interferon gamma (IFN-γ). This explained the severe symptoms. A treatment in which the shortage of IFN-γ was abolished, caused the symptoms to disappear like snow in the sun for all three patients." (its in Dutch but you can translate by right clicking)

      If it works for shingles, I think it is beneficial in herpes. I do not want to lose hope. Do you have any idea how we can reach you?   If it works for shingles, I think it is beneficial in herpes. I do not want to lose hope. Do you have any idea how we can reach you?
