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

      Just read how Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez helped raise $340,000 for transgender youth. https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-casually-joins-171241889.html It sure would help if we had some celebrity or public person champion our cause. Maybe that should be our focus, to reach out to public persons and try to enlist them.  All it takes is a tweet from the right person.

      Dr. Iwasaki is definitely deserving of funding. I'd love it if we could do a fund raiser for her. I guess at the moment we are already doing the Fred Hutch Center.

      Hi, I’ve had HSV1g for 4 years and only ever had my first and only breakout. I’m super thankful for that. I still hate disclosing as it sets off alarms. Finally met a guy I really really like and disclosed last night to be clear about why I’ve been hesitant to be intimate.  We have for sure kissed and after telling he was in a panick about us having kissed. I’ve never ever had cold sores and have never passed it to anyone. Again in 4 years only my first and only genital HsV1 breakout. I’ve always been told kissing for me was fine....Can anyone help clarify? I’m resllt struggling as I like this guy a lot and hoping he can look past it.
