Got tested... Retest needed??

Recommended Posts

Sooo about two weeks ago I thought I was exposed to hsv2. Just got my results back from a test I took Wednesday and blood and swab both came back negative. Should I retest in a month or am I good?

I believe they recommend waiting 3 months for another test to allow time for antibodies to build. Good Luck!

Is it common to get a negative blood and swab test after two weeks and then a positive test three months later?

Did you actually have a lesion that they swabbed?

Okay, then how did they do a swab test on you?

In my urethra

I see. But you have had no pain during urination, right?

I really think it is most likely you didn't contract anything from your encounter. But if you want a bit more peace of mind, you might try another type specific blood test somewhere around the 3+ month time frame.

      I'm not that well versed in HPV but HPV eventually is cleared by the body on its own.  A vaccine does exist which helps immunize against certain strains of HPV (not all of them), but will not treat HPV for those who already have it.  Everyone, male and female, who is eligible should get the Gardasil vaccine. If a new vaccine exists to treat HPV that's great, but I'm doubtful based on a quick Google search.

      I am new to all of this. My girlfriend has been told by a docter she has Human Papillomavirus (HP) and that in Mexico they have a cure they just develop, I guess a month or so ago Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine , have anyone heard of this. It is a lot on the internet about it. But I don't know how much I trust it.. Thank you AMM
