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.

      @clarke53 without a swab that’s a hugely risky call!

      Hi all  i have been to a doctor on 4 seperate occasions since I had unprotected sex with a woman who I later found out has herpes . They have said “it doesn’t look” like herpes . My penis always is red , inflamed anabolic has little red pimples on it.  I am constant uncomfort and pain in my gential areas, tingling , fatigue . None of the drs have done a blood test. I have researched DNA testing as they appear more accurate. I saw a dr this week and he took a swab. It’s always on my mind now because I have just started a relationship and don’t know if I should tell her. I’m scared she will run a mile . I haven’t told her because the dr said I was fine . I don’t know what do to do .  Any advice would be appreciated . I have a history with depression and this is adding to it

      @clarke53 why do you think you do not have an asymptomatic genital infection. The mouth sores don’t seem to be herpetic.  What protection do you use genitally?
