Need advice on test result

Recommended Posts

Hello.

I will try to explain it as simple as possible.

I had sex on 25 August 2012 and on 31 August, I felt a little pain during urinating.

Then on 1 September , I had sex again, the next day i felt itch on my vagina. 2 days later i notice small blister around my vagina and it felt very itchy (looked like individual bumps and had white head , all over genital, and no crust) but i felt no pain. And i also found 1 blister on my lip but it doesn't hurt. I got fever for about 1 week (from september 5 until 11)

The next day i went to dermatologist and the doctor exam my vagina and she said i got hsv. I asked serelogic test before i took any pills.

The result : 5 September 2012 :

Anti HSV 1 IgG : 0,21 non reactive

Anti HSV 1 IgM : 0,13 non reactive

Anti HSV 2 IgG : 0,11 non reactive

Anti HSV 2 IgM : 0,20 non reactive

The i took anti viral drugs for 7 days and

apply the cream from the prescription.

My husband also did serelogic test couple weeks after

the result is Anti HSV 1 IgG : 3,2 reactive

Anti HSV 1 IgM , Anti HSV 2 both IgG and IgM

all are "non reactive"

I took another anti hsv test along with the 3 months HIV test

The result : 22 November 2012

Anti HSV 1 IgG : 0,49 non reactive - ELISA

Anti HSV 1 IgM : 0,24 non reactive - ELISA

Anti HSV 2 IgG : 0,07 non reactive

Anti HSV 2 IgM : 0,22 non reactive - ELISA

My questions are :

1. Is there possibility that i don't have hsv

based on the test result ?

2. Is it possible that my husband test result was

"False positive" ? What is the range of "false positive" numbers ?

3. Should husband and I get another test ? When is the best time

to test it again ?

There's no lab provide WB in this country.

Thank you

A possibility -

It looks like your husband is positive for hsv1. There is a possibility that you have just acquired it genitally from him from oral sex. Do you have oral sex? If this is newly acquired you might not show antibodies for several months on blood testing.

you might want to go to Westoverheights.com and download their free book -- It gives the script #s for Lab Corp and Quest to test for hsv.....see if these tests were previously ordered for you and your husband.

      I think you're right about 'having a good flow', i.e. splitting the dosage throughout the day to make most use of it. You're also right about potential strain on your body for overdoses, however there is conflicting information about this based on studies I've read. There are several of studies indicating benefits of high doses of vitamin C for fighting viral diseases. I've done quite a bit of research on this as in the past I used to suffer from common colds, often over one week in duration and up to 6 times a year. With Zinc and Vitamin C I've managed to reduce these to once a year, and their duration to under 6 days. Some of the studies used IV administration of Vitamin C, which is of course different to taking it orally, but some of them had success with high oral doses as well:  Dr. Harri Hemilä from the University of Helsinki, Finland, analyzed the findings of two randomized trials each of which investigated the effects of two vitamin C doses on the duration of the common cold. The first trial administered 3 g/day vitamin C to two study groups, 6 g/day to a third group, and the fourth group was administered a placebo. Compared with the placebo group the 6 g/day dose shortened colds by 17%, twice as much as the 3 g/day doses did. The second trial administered 4 g/day and 8 g/day vitamin C, and placebo to different groups, but only on the first day of the cold. Compared with the placebo group, the 8 g/day dose shortened colds by 19%, twice as much as the 4 g/day dose did. https://www.mdpi.com/2072-6643/9/4/339/htm High dose IV Vitamin C has been shown to be effective against viral infections such as the common cold rhinovirus (Hemila and Herman,1995); avian virus H1N1 (Ely,2007;) Chikungunya (Gonzalez et al. 2014; Marcial-Vega et al,2015); Zika (Gonzalez et al 2016) and influenza (Zarubaeva et al.2017). Also oral supplementation with vitamin C (doses over 3g) appears to be able to both prevent and treat respiratory and systemic infections (Carr and Maggini, 2017). https://isom.ca/article/high-dose-vitamin-c-influenza-case-report/ We had a case in which a patient with herpes zoster did not respond to conventional therapy so we attempted to administer intravenous infusion of vitamin C which resulted in an immediate reduction in the pain. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3111558/

      Hey @Antoinette63 you do absolutely nothing. If infected with HSV-2, then the initial outbreak would have occurred within days of the infections. Symptoms after 4 months are not really likely to have been from that episode.  If she does have a recent infection of herpes, then it will be from her new boyfriend!
    • WilsoInAus
      Hang on @viralfrog let’s be rational here. The male body can only usefully metabolise 100mg of vitamin C a day. Any excess does not have any known impact on the body as it doesn’t actually get to where you might be thinking it goes. It goes out via your kidneys, potentially causing toxic effects. The real trick with vitamin C is making sure there is a good flow moving through your intestines such that your body can metabolise the full 100mg easily. To achieve this, you are much better off taking a tablet of about 250mg with each meal. Anything more than 2g a day of vitamin C is not only useless but commences a strain process on your body that may include outcomes including kidney stones.

      Hang on, no one is talking about testing again for herpes. We are suggesting an analysis of the serum in the blisters that will give clues as to the cause.

      Currently I'm taking my Ascorbic acid at two doses throughout the day, 6g at lunch and 6g at dinner. It's already a hassle as I have to dilute it in water, rinse my mouth with coconut oil and then I take a shot of it from a shot glass and rinse my mouth quickly with water after. Even with the coconut oil, I'm worried for my teeth.  I was going to order a capsule filler machine and some gelatin capsules, but realised it will cost me almost the same than just ordering 1g vitamin tablets from iHerb. Also, this means I still have to be eating 12 capsules per day which is not ideal. I wonder if I could figure out some DIY method to be able to squeeze 3-5g of the Ascorbic acid into some coating to be able to swallow it without risking my teeth.  I had a look at liposomal C too, but what put me off was the quick expiration date if making it yourself. Unless I'm wrong, you have to do a new batch like twice a week.
