Confused about STD results!


Recommended Posts

Hello, so for starters I've been with my mate for a year now. I was tested from both the gyn and my PCP which was in April 2015. I came right back for a follow up from my PCP which she told me I was negative from everything .. But she may detect a yeast. Which didn't worry me because I figured it came from using scented soaps and sometimes lotion in my vaginal area. I never followed up with my gyn unfortunately until last week, when she told me I had chlamydia, please keep in mind this visit was also from April. It's weird that chlamydia was never bought to my attention with my PCP. Last week my PCP told me that I was diagnosed with HSV2 ..my gyn never mentioned it. My first visit from my PCP this wasn't mentioned either.. I tested negative for HSV1 but positive for HSV2 igm testing... My numbers for HSV2 igm titter: were 1:40A (<1:20) ..no symptoms no outbreaks. I'm very confused as to why I'm getting 2 different results from my gyn and my PCP ..I'm wondering do I really have HSV2.. Should I be concerned or take more test? Please give me your honest and most thorough answers..

HSV is not included in most STD tests so perhaps your GYN never tested for it. Ask your PCP why he/she initially said you had nothing but then said you had hsv2, that just doesn't make sense.

Either way you need to ask either of them to test give you and IgG hsv test. Your IgM test is worthless so don't worry about that.

Good luck!

Hello, I forgot to mention that I was given pills (valacyclovir hcl) 500 mg

I'm not sure if I'm diagnosed just yet so I'm not sure if I should continue to take them..please help!

Taking antivirals can affect blood tests. Since they help suppress the virus your immune system may take longer to create antibodies that the blood tests look for. Some experts say not to take antivirals for a few weeks prior to testing.

If you do choose to take them and you don't have herpes the antivirals won't hurt you. So its your choice if you want to take them.

      Just another set of supporting articles to a potential release date in 2024 giving hope to sufferers whom the standard of care is currently worthless: Promising Progress in clinical trials for Pritelivir (herpescureadvocacy.com) HSV Treatment Readies for Approval — Precision Vaccinations News

      I have not found a cheaper source for Amenalief, and I've searched high and low. I have a thread called "Pritelivir at Last" you may want to follow as I have a strong belief that It may be available to the public in the summer of 2024 and as I find new info, I update the thread immediately. Now, may I suggest a combination of drugs that several others on this forum have found to be very effective over acyclovir alone? Myself and others have found that taking 40mg of omeprazole (Tagamet @dissolvedo2 ) with 1 gram of Valacyclovir in the morning and 1 gram of Valacyclovir in the evening alone for 3 days have had profound effectiveness at stopping outbreaks in their tracks. I'd like to remind you that I am not a doctor and at best I am personal researcher for what works for me. I @lw@ys share my findings with the forum in the hopes to help others alleviate their suffering. There is another drug combo that I have tried myself as well as others on this forum have tried and that I personally feel is a much more effective for myself. This combo is 1 gram of activated charcoal with 1-gram of valacyclovir in the morning followed by 1 gram of valacyclovir in the evening alone, again for 3 days. I have found that this has reduced my outbreaks to almost only once a year and they are mild at worse. Again, just a reminder that this works for me and may not work for you but I always feel that i have to share this with anyone that cannot get this virus under control so I hope my findings can help those of you who cannot achieve relief with the standard treatment alone. The stronger anti-virals come with risks and if I can help anyone avoid those risks then by all means I feel I have done some good in this world. I only ask that you let me know if either of these suggestions work for you so that I can document it in my notes. Good luck my friend!

      Hi @Anxious 1234 Did you get diagnosis for this?

      Hi @WhatDidIDo2023, hopefully all is well with you and your significant other and are still together.   Did she develop any other symptoms after you mentioned her getting itchiness? Was it determined what you had was contagious? Most likely developed a fungal disease and caused her a yeast or uti
