If your results are undetermined or equivocal

Recommended Posts


This site has been a god send to me these last three months. And I want to say a big thank you to everyone on here.

The only man I slept with was with my husband of 19 years. Last year we got divorced (which I did not want to happen) and I ended up in a casual relationship.

After 5 months of been with him he rings me up and tells me I need to get checked out as he had a blister on his penis. He had slept with someone else in between, but thought that whaatever he had was from me. "I don't thiink so, I have only been with my husband and I knew he was faithfull to me".

My first result came back - one month after encounter

HSV 1 negative

HSV 2 negative

IGM positive

My second result came back - two months after encounter

HSV 1 negative

HSV 2 equivocal

IGM equivocal

After all my research I thought that I must be converting and expect my next results to be HSV 2 positive and IGM negative. And I thought well if I do have it, I can live with it cos besides the pains I was having down my legs, and soreness below which all disappeared within days. And after many stressful days and nights, chocolate, drinking I did not get any further symptons and thought I would be asymtomatic.

Today I get the phone call to say I am clear for everything. I cried because the last three months have been hell, and learnt a very hard lesson and will be so much wiser, choosier and cautious in my future endeavours.

Needless to say from the knowledge I have gained from this site, if I do meet a person with herpes I will know not run a mile as I am so much more educated and it can honestly happen to anyone.

I would like to say if you are in the inital stages or newly diagnosed this site is the place to be, to put a perspective on things, it certainly has helped me these last three months, and also next time I have any fears I will not be going for any blood tests, I won't do anything unless I have something to swab. This is why in Australia they do not give blood test unless asked for. I was just paranoid and researched too much that I believed I had it.

I wish everyone well.

      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 🙂
