My story...at times I cry, but this sites keeps me in line


Recommended Posts

:wavey:My results were as follow:

HSV Types 1 and 2 Ab, S

HSV Type 1 Ab, IgG, S POSITIVE Negative

HSV Type 2 Ab, IgG, S Negative Negative

HSV Ab, IgM, S by EIA Negative Negative

When I went to see the doctor at the office he said I tested positive for the type 2.

When I received the above results, i was not very clear. I email my doctor and he stated the following.

I can see why you are confused. In your blood test the antibody found was to HSV-1; that means at some time in the more distant past you had the Type 1 virus in your system. The swab taken from the sore had DNA evidence of the Type 2 virus. This is the one that caused the infection. The blood test for the antibody to Type 2 is negative because those antibiodies have not developed yet.

At this time I do not have any OB because I am taking medication for 10 days (this 01-10-11)would be my last pill.

I do not know how long I had this in me, or who gave it to me. But that does not matter now. At times I cry and think of the future if I end up with no one. I have a very supportive bf who just got tested yesterday and we are waiting for answer. I read a lot here where they say that the first outbreak is the hardest one. That was my first and i did not feel anything. I noticed because when I took a shower and cleaing myself down there something was tender, and found two little sores. As day went by they were secrating liquid, there was time that it was king of green, but again very little. I had never had fiver blisters that you could see. There time that i had a few tender spots on my lips and they went away real fast without manifesting into a sore.

I really think this came out of me because of rough sex, and I did not give myself lubrican until the end.

Any comments on the rough sex? I really wonder how everything would be like after I finish taking this medication (ACYCLOVIR)..

This is the best day I had so far since the diagnosis. Staying in touch here is very helpful. The only bad thing is that I am at work and can not go into the chat because my pc does not have jave..:p

      Hi @CathM if you received oral sex in the days before the sores first appeared then it is important to be sure of type - culture tests do not type. Ask to see your result and see what it says. Is your partner going to test? This is also helpful.

      Hello@WilsoInAus I only know that they took a swab and then I was notified that I was positive for HSV 2. I don’t know have any knowledge about whether it was a culture test?

      Hi @CathM and welcome to the website. Yes there is little doubt you were infected by this new partner. This would have happened 2-10 days before the sores appeared. There is one question to settle quickly. Was your swab test a PCR with a result of HSV-2 detected. Or was it a culture test?

      Hello. Just been diagnosed with HSV2 after a swab test. Absolutely devastated at the diagnosis. Had symptoms after sleeping with my new partner. Symptoms started about 6 weeks after our first encounter. Did I get it from him? We split just before the diagnosis. I feel like my life is over, please help 😥

      A lot of students looking for online assignment help services because they face issues in completing their assignments and homework. The problem is, Many of them are busy with their other activities and others face tough life routines. That's why students seek CIPD assignment help services because it helps students to finish their assignments and homework in a very short time.
