Just saying hi to the site. I'm over feeling depress about my condition but still very much angry about the situation. A little background, it's been a year since I discovered I have HVS 2. Here's the interesting part at the beginning of that year IGG for HSV2 was negative I broke up with my girlfriend at the time and casually dated (no sex) mid year another test still negative. Hooked up with a friend had a little fling and ended it in August, later i meet my future fiance whom we decide to wait til we get married (no sex :( lol). In December 2010 had my first outbreak so of course I suspect my friend the last person I had sex only she tested negative on her IGG...So what the hell!:madd: Oh after my outbreak my fiance got test she's negative.

After that I did research I found that most occurrences happen 2 to 12 days after initial infection, 2-12 days i was going to and showering at the gym religiously, thats the only place my penis was exposed to the dangers of the world lol. I know it sounds crazy but it all true.

Heyoooo... I'm from Houston as well!!

From what I understand, there are lots of occurrences of false negatives when taking a blood test. The only sure fire way to test for herpes is taking a swab of an outbreak. Meaning the girl you slept with tested negative but probably has it and is asymptomatic. That's just my guess.

I'm sorry you are having to deal with this but welcome to the site! This forum is a great place to get information about the glorious gift of herpes.

      Ok well the red spots have gone away, do you still have any external symtpoms?

      Looks a bit similar to what I have. People will tell you it’s not herpes because it’s spred out or does not look like herpes, but my doctors are running out of answers/prescriptions to give me. ive had a host of other symptoms never before felt in my body. my tests are negative for now. I had a swab yesterday, but I’m not sure if it was an area that will yield anything. It was more a plea of something hurts, please swab this. its taken me months to get someone to swab me. I recently found out a hospital did not test my blood for HSV even after I requested it. Messed up, huh?

      Ok So I had unprotected sex with a girl about 5 days ago and the day after I had masturbated an abnormal amount for whatever reason. The following day I noticed my urethra and penis had a bit of pain and then I began to have abnormal pelvic pain, though the lymphnodes in my groin area were not swollen or sensitive. After about three days the pelvic pain continued and my urethra soreness continued as well despite my lack of masturbation. I have also had abnormal headaches and my usual lower back pain as an active athlete. No sores or lesions of sorts just a couple of red spots as I had shaved recently before having the unprotected sex and all these red spots are painless and do not itch. I have also had a constant urge to pee. I am on a rollercoaster of convincing myself that I do not have it and then hitting the internet with my symptoms and going into a panic that I could have HSV 2. Am i being a hypochondriac or should I be worried? Thanks guys
