I question about hsv tests and the law

Recommended Posts

SunShy

Hey folks, a few months back I had a herpes scare. I saw a couple doctors and after checking my body and listening to my concerns, they all were positive that I did not have HSV. Around 3 months post exposure, I got tested for HSV 1 and 2. Both tests cam back negative but I'm curious as to whether or not I need to get tested again for legal purposes. Some sites claim that you need to wait 3-6 months to get an accurate test, and given that my test was around 3 months, I'm wondering if I need to get another test after 6 months in order to NOT be legal obligated to tell future partners about my herpes scare? I'm not certain if I currently have this legal obligation and I am not currently involved with anybody, but I am interested in getting back into the dating world and and I just want to be clear on the laws. I live in the U.S. by the way. Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Hey Shy, did you get the tests in hard copies with the numerical values showing you are Negative for both types if herpes? Then honey, that's your proof. If the next person you come into contact says "no I've NEVER been tested" You can say well I have and I'm Clear of everything you show you had test taken. Not all STD test test for all STD' s. I'd say you don't need to say you had a herpes scare, say you wanted to be healthy and responsible and get tested before entering a new relationship. Just THAT simple. Truly, Aces xo

If you had either. . . you would know right off the bat. It doesn't take 3 months for a test to show if you have it or not. The moment you think you have an outbreak is when you need to get tested. That is when you will have the most accurate test. The guy who infected me tried to lie to his next partner claiming that herpes type 2 has a 4 month incubation period & blamed me but when I confronted him before that he had blamed the girl before me. Turns out he's had it for years and has been lying about it for a long time. If you tested negative, then don't worry about anything. Negative means you don't have it. There is NO incubation period for herpes 1 or 2. It's mononucleosis that has an incubation period.

      It is already a hassle getting started with making it.  I end up with more questions than I can find answers for, but stumble on...  I am retired so feel like my job is (finally) taking care of myself.  I have had few health issues, generally healthy--except for the H bomb.  If i have to make liposomal 2x a week, i dont think it will be a big deal.  The big deal is getting the equipment and getting started i think.  I make kombucha, which is sort of like having a not-very-demanding pet.  I dont mind doing this kind of stuff.  But will probably keep liposomal capsules or packets on hand for times when its inconvenient to make it. I cant believe u r sucking down 6 g of AA at a time!  The most i drink with AA is 2 g at a time.  I am currently taking 4 g AA and 9 g liposomal C in caps/packets. The protocol evolves.  I am so thrilled to not have BO's that i dont care what i have to do. They ruined my life.  I am glad u r finally getting good results with your fight against H.  Have u tried drinking the AA thru a straw with the straw toward the back of your mouth to avoid teeth?  I would think baking soda and water swished around in your mouth after drinking the AA would neutralize any remaining acid.  My teeth have pretty strong enamel, so i dont worry about it (but dont do 6 g AA at a time).  If u r worried about acid erroding tooth enamel, why arent u worried about 6 g of AA at a time going down the soft tissues of your esophagus and onward?  Im not saying its wrong, just wondering.

      Additionally to the above and to answer you question more precisely, it had been 12 days (probably more) before I started to get itchy (I could swear the rash started as insect bites, each very distinct - I am in a hostel so there is a chance it was bedbugs). Before that it had been a week or two.  I also had been cycling intensely in 35 plus degree heat (temps were around 38 degrees today. And the spot where the rash showed up is the exacts spot where my upper thigh rubs the seat. Finally, my clothes were washed by a laundry service, and the T-shirt I was wearing that was washed in the same load had been irritating my skin.

      @Sabayou have no need to be concerned with genital herpes. Your symptoms are not those of herpes.  If you have concerns, seek out the type specific HSV testing.
