im an 18/m and i think have herpes 2, although i havent been tested, but i had blisters on my knees (which i read is possible if you just have skin to skin contact) and i had other symptoms such as fever, muscle ache, tiredness.

i happened to just make one big mistake on a drunken night with a girl i know i shouldnt have had contact with and never would have if i was sober that night.

im getting tested as soon as i can this week to be 100% sure but im still freaking the hell out, on account that im in an enviroment where im always around girls and i dont even know how i will react around them with it comes to sexual activity or just building a relationship at all. i havent even told any of my closer friends at all, so im just on here asking for advice. i know im not sure i have it but any advice on how to deal with it would be helpful, since i may get the depressing news soon.

As long as you are not going to have sex with them you don't have to tell anyone. You can be the "guy that doesn't just sleep around and is looking for a long term relationship" whether you are 18 or 30 or 50. This is acceptable at any age, can let you know if you trust a girl before you tell her, and can keep you out of other trouble.

      I've had neg swabs but I am sure you'll get it. Follow the process. I haven't read the thread in exact detail, but if you have documentation of doctors mishandling your case when you get/ if you get a poss inform them in writing as well as the medical board I think.  Under diagnosis is as problematic as false pos and reducing transmission is good.

      @WilsoInAusi wish you were right.  you can't say that with such confidence having never met me though.  I had one MD look at my sore on Sunday @ 8pm, said it was not looking herpetic but to come back in the morning.  I came back in the morning and he said it looked exactly like a cold sore/HSV1 based on the changes / "ablative look" to the skin around the lip.  The Dermatologists have never seen me with a sore until yesterday, too, and had only seen pictures.  They're used to the classic HSV2 look that shows up in Google Images. I think the swab test will be definitive - we broke open the sore and sent it off within  48 hours of appearing.  I'm also waiting for my 13 week IGG type specific HerpeSelect Immunoblot any day now using RequestATest - LabCorp.

      Not really wanting to call Terry.  I'll be checking the term anecdotal as I agree it may not be the best term. Maryland University seems to disagree and there was a researcher looking into random transmissions off poss objects in the eighties.

      There are two cases of torts in the USA in regards to transmission from surfaces. These require a 50% probability in causation and would be medically confirmed. I would say the reason it is less documented as people just deal with it and get on with their lives or it happens more frequently in lower socio economic groups that all just go into denial.

      I'm collecting the less than usual experiences Wilson, and not all professionals agree with Terry. These myths in my experience do not always get around with no basis.

      The thread was more about antibodies any ways and I was just mostly sharing my experience of reading  those who claim a neg IgG. I am sorry I veered from that here.

      One person I have read here claim neg IgG. And years ago there were two people who also claimed neg IgG.

      It is up to each person to do their own research before they spend money on products.
