If the herpes are inactive, would the results show negative?

Are you talking about a swab test or a blood test?

Swab test? Yes, if the virus is not active and on the surface to be cultured, it would be a false negative test

Blood test? No, as it tests for antibodies and not the virus itself

Ok what would that mean if both results show negative yet still have symptoms?

What are your symtoms?? If u have sores bumps or blisters and the swab came back negatxive its most likely something other than herpes, unless swabbed after they started healing but I think thats the only time ud get a false negative, I think blood tests arent as reliable bit a negative could just be that its a recent infection and your body hasnt built antibodies yet. Test again in few months or during next ob if u have another

The symptoms I have experienced is itchiness and the ob have ruled out yeast infection and other stds in general including herpes

So what would it have been?

Itchness can be caused by so many things which are nothing serious, bacterial vaginosis can cause itching and clear itself up, ir could be that u just got too hot! I dont think thw occasional itch is anything to wprry about, especially if stds are ruled out!

Well its not that occasional.

Kinda more than that.

Once it itches and I subtly rub it then it gets more itchy

      Diagnosed a year ago. Tried suppression therapy to no avail. Dr prescribed 500mg Valtrex increased to 1000g no help. Two HIV test negative. The worst experience ever. Tried oil of oregano, olive leaf extract, lysine, Multi vitamin. Just read because I’m peri menopausal it might be hormones. Outbreaks are constant hsv 2.  If anyone can can relate, I’m pleading for insight.

      Hi walkthetalk can you please give us more details about your experience with synergy as for how long you been in it, you mention you didn’t get outbreaks do you still feel the flares etc, are you planing to get retested?

      The medications are mainly based on disrupting replication. I am not aware of medications for herpes with the purpose of reducing antibodies directly. Do you have an example?

      I've been reading up on alot of this and I'm just curious about the meds they offer here. They stop it from replicating and others keep the antibodies down. Just a thought and I'd appreciate any input on this. Wouldn't you much rather have high antibodies for this so the immune system can keep it at bay. Or am I all the way off?
