I don't have herpes???

Recommended Posts


so I was tested for anti-bodies once before...

and at the time I tested negative.

The doctor and I thought it was most likely a fluke, and I continued with acyclovir etc.

I've just had another really bad outbreak, so I visited the doctor and he took a culture as well as another blood test to find hsv antibodies....

...and AGAIN both the blood test and the culture are NEGATIVE for hsv.


now what?

he says they could be larger than normal canker sores?

or perhaps related to an immune disorder/rheumatoid issue?

at least this explains would explain why the anti-virals were not having any effect whatsoever.

I am really lost. I am more confused than ever, and really don't know how to feel about this.

Cankers your only issues???

I have had seriously chronic canker sores my entire life. I've never had any cold sores or any other issues yet I now tested positive for hsv2 lonnnnggg after getting cankers. I am certain I am asymptomatic and my cankers had nothing to do with the diagnosis when comparing to the facts( I've read a ton). You most likely have been dealing with a great amount of stress and trust me, that can result in cankers. They are caused by sooo many other issues besides herpes. If you're that worried then get tested. I'm pretty sure you're fine.

      (For my case: i am not diagnosed herpes. I had genital warts. 
      I can tell her a sex partner was diagnosed with HPV, and i pretty surely have it and that's why i do it with boxer short the next months. Hm.)   https://herpesopportunity.com/downloads/herpes-opportunity-disclosure-handout.pdf https://www.cdc.gov/std/herpes/stdfact-herpes-detailed.htm

      How long after diagnosis did you start to have sex again? How did he get it on the lips?

      Hi,  I was wondering if you could describe your outbreaks or how much time it passed before you where correctly diagnosed. Or your overall experience. I am freaking out and just wearing my underwear feels uncomfortable.  How did they diagnosed you? Thank you in advanced

      I THINK this will benefit us. If the FDA allows more aggressive research in the deadliest virus programs, such as HIV gene editing, then off-targeting and other safety issues might already be solved before Dr. Jerome  starts editing hsv in humans.
