Phone call saying my blood test is negative-no herpes

Recommended Posts

Sweet girl 77

At 7AM I received a call from the clinic saying my blood test was negative and that I do not have herpes. I spent most of yesterday on the internet reading and it says that not all blood tests are correct. So how can they tell me that I don't have herpes? I have to make an appointment to see a doctor to be figure out just what is causing the open sore I have. I do have something that looks similar to the herpes pictures I looked at, but I don't have a bunch of small blisters. Yesterday it looked like one that was about a half inch long by about 1/8 inch wide. The yellow pussy look is gone now and it is red, watery, and sore looking. It no longer hurts. She gave me lidocaine hydrochloride jelly 2% that seems to be working. So now I don't know what I have.

I can't find out how to post a new thread to the other forums, only on the new member page. Can someone tell me where to find directions on how to start a new thread on the other forums please?

well first just a thought on the blood test. I have read that there could be a false negative for a blood test for herpes if you got it done too soon. I think you have to wait for a little while after you have been exposed.

But hopefully the test is correct and its not herpes.

Second, to make a new thread on another forum, you click on the forum from the main page and then you will see a link for "New Thread" at the top right hand side.

I just got home from the clinic. My nurse practictioner said my blood test and culture were both negative. All I have is raw skin that got infected from the virgorus sex. Thank you so much for this blog. It helped me a lot over the weekend. I will keep my bookmarks in case I do need you in the future. PS. Urgent care people don't know much about gynecology. And I had to pay $65 for the valtrax, but I am so happy I don't have it, I don't even care.

Thanks Rockgirl for letting me know how to make a post on other forums. Hope I don't have to come back, but I might visit to see how everyone is doing.

Good news!

But I'd get a new blood test in about 3 months to be sure; herpes can take a while to show on a blood test and often swab tests can be inaccurate due to not doing the test when the infection/sore is at its height.

Good news, though.

Thank you for letting me know I should get another test. This has been such a wake up call to me. Scaryist thing of my life. My nurse practioner said the skin had been rubbed off and got infected. The Urgent care person just assumed herpes. When I looked at it, it did not look like a lot of little blisters, but one pussy spot. It is clearing up now that I am on antibiotics. Again I want to thank you for your posts to me. You are a blessing.

I am glad it was a wake up call for you remember there are worse things than herpes you can catch please always use protection and ask your partners if they have been tested regularly for STDs.

      Any advice on on how i can change the way she thinks of her insecurities in the event I ever see her again or hang out with her or do you guys think that it's better too just walk away. The truth is though i never met another girl like her before and she was fine with me having herpes i could tell by the she reacted too it . How do you change the way someone views them self that has low self esteem.

      Note @Asr624 that an IgM result does not confirm a herpes diagnosis. Was the rash swabbed as well?

      Yes it's entirely possible that he didn't know and just now gave it to you. I've been with my husband almost 19 years and he was recently tested and is still negative. It's still possible of course that I could give it to him at any point. Sounds like you have a strong marriage and there is no reason this needs to be an issue other than a minor annoyance. I have 2 healthy children and have had no related medical issues due to HSV.

      I have been with him and didn’t tell him and now I can’t tell him because I know it would ruin any chance of reconciliation. I don’t want to live with this and I don’t want to live without him

      I am so sorry that happened to you. No one deserves that. Praying for you.
