Confused Teenager, Doctor's low info diagnosis

Recommended Posts


Alright well let me get right to it.

I'm 17.

I got my tests results back

HSV AB IGG 1 : 4.12 (Positive)

HSV AB IGG 2 : 0.57 (Negative)

My doctor told me nothing more.

It hurts to pee, but I took flomax and i've gotten relief (Tight Bladder).

I am a virgin, but have had unprotected oral sex 3 times.

I do not get many cold sores, I do recall having one or two in childhood

I don't know what I have, and unfortunately I don't trust my doctor

Questions? Concerns? Suggestions?

I'm scared.

While it is unlikely to get HSV1 genitally if you have had it for a long time, it is possible. It is also entirely possible that you have something else unrelated to herpes going on downstairs, but you thought to get the blood test now because of your symptoms. Don't be scared though, carrying herpes is very common.

Did the Doctor take a swab of the sores to have them cultured? Unless you've had it for a few months, the chances are high that a blood test won't show a positive result yet. If you think it's possible you were recently exposed, it would be wise to wait about 12 weeks and get another blood test. If that test says negative then chances are you don't have type 2.

I tested positive for HSV1 in the genital area in August last year.

I had a pap smear because of pain which I thought was a UTI and it was positive.

If it was a blood test, it could be that you just carry HSV1 but either way you'll need to go back to the doctors to clairfy I'd suggest.

Hope your doin okay :)

      Hey so I have told a few people when I was first diagnosed and panicky. My mother knows, and 3 close friends and honestly to my surprise they were very supportive and just wanted to make sure I was okay, they still invite me out like usual nothing has changed and atleast one of them gets oral coldsores it's the same damn thing. I dont tell coworkers I draw the line there and I don't tell men who are interested in me it's not their business unless I choose to become physical with them and therefore risk transmition. I have been dating through a herpes dating site and it's been working out well for me I'm not totally sure I want to be "out" to everyone because the world is still the world and their are immature people out there.

      Just tell him you have been thinking about it and you want to go get tested with him. Don't believe anyone until you see their paperwork

      Amazon has it in bulk and caps

      I've used it to effectively abort an outbreak immediately. See here: Pretty convinced of the combo for this. Never had any success like that before ever. Will 100% keep using it.
