SO CONFUSED, any help would be appreciated

Recommended Posts

I had unprotected sex over a month ago, the day after I had pain in my pelvic/vagina, this lasted for 2 weeks.

Then my vagina became red/swollen with slight itching/burning. I went to planned parenthood ( I have no health insurance) and they tested me for everything BUT HERPES, and I came negative for everything. When I asked to be tested for herpes they said "herpes is sores" you don't have it.

My pain lasted so I went back again and they treated me for a slight bacterial infection and for a slight yeast infection. (Even though she seemed annoyed and acted like I was crazy)

Following the treatment and it's been over a month (altogether) I am still red/swollen, burning/itching with discharge and still no sores what so ever.

I don't know what to do, I've checked the local health center and they told me the only way to be tested for herpes was to go to a family doctor, which I don't have. Does this sound like herpes, also I've been having lower back pain/tired and after the first 2 weeks I vomited and felt feverish.

Also at this point I would just pay out of pocket to go to a dr. that will actually help me. Do gynecologists do blood tests for herpes? Should I just go to a gyno?

I had a type specific blood test done by my gyno, yes.

Just call some to ask if they can do it.

I made an apt. at a gyno. It's been 5 weeks since possible exposure, would my test results be accurate?

It is possible that it might take up to 3 months or longer before antibodies form to a sufficient level for a reading. So if this test comes back negative or equivocal, you might wish to repeat it after 3 months from exposure. But it might come up positive at this point anyway.

Herpes doesn't play by the rules.

Make sure you ask for a type specific test that measures IgG antibodies. Tests that only measure IgM antibodies are considered less accurate.

Hope you can get this all figured out. :wavey:

      When who gets a positive test? I have already tested positive (as you and I have discussed multiple times in other threads and I state here) and HIPA would prevent me for getting his results unless he willingly provides to me, but as I’ve also stated HE won’t get tested.  Ya can’t get blood from a stone. He has nothing that would even start to compensate for the pain and suffering, let alone the missed work because of the pain!

      @Balancelife when you get a positive test, sue him!

      Read what I wrote and start Googling.  Both the Einstein College of Medicine (William Jacobs and Betsy Herold)  and University of Pennsylvania/Trivalent (Harvey Friedman) seem to believe they are on the right track and have established relationships outside of their respective universities.  Yes, it’s early, but they are taking the bat and readying to swing at HSV.   Cross those fingers and stay positive!

      Where ever you are trolling, I’ll be right there.

      Fingers crossed!! Could you elaborate a bit on the research or maybe post a link to it? Definitely could be a little light in the dark 🙂
