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 :)

Try a Lysine supplement for cold sores

      Him holding my hips, grabbing ass, then grabbing his cock is what I worry about. I also worry about shedding anywhere from the boxer shorts area and that's a mighty big area. It is the unknown. It would be nice to cover the entire area and then I just don't have to worry! Then the part that is exposed which  would be a very small spot. Maybe cover with that liquid glove?!? I just like the idea of doing my best

      I wouldn’t because that would be outing myself as well unfortunately. It just sucks because our mutual friends have no clue why I carry such resentment towards him, and wonder why they can’t even bring up his name around me anymore. Im sure they think I’m a crazy jealous person who is hurt things didn’t work out or that I’m being dramatic for no reason. I can’t explain to or confide in anyone but the users on this forum.

      Girl! I am actually on the same exact position. My new bf gave it to me and he put the blame on me! When he was my 2nd partner and I hadn’t had sex in 5 years (last guy was a virgin). I know that alone feeling but know you’re not alone. I just got diagnosed 2 weeks ago too. It’s crazy you see yourself differently but I promise no one around you does.

      How would that location (upper crack) come in contact with him during doggy style sex? Maybe after the act if he fell on top of you while you're face down. I would suggest simply observing whether there are sores in these areas that are somewhat removed from the genital area. If there are no sores than the odds of you transferring to him such as the lower stomach or leg etc.., are pretty damn low. Obviously, we can come always come up with a scenario where you could transmit. For example, if you were on your stomach and he was sliding his dick up and down your butt crack and you had sores there, then yes, he could get infected. If you were just shedding there it would be less likely but possible. But try doing that with your clothes on. I don't think that would work out very well; Do you?  Wearing clothes during sex like that woman you portrayed in your earlier comment is sexy. But that's all together different.
