Why did doctor seem like he was misleading

Recommended Posts

Curtis

My longterm partner of over 15 years was diagnosed with g h 2 recently through a swab test on the area.  I went to the same office to get a blood test.  I ran into some problems with the doctors there and was wondering if anyone else had similar exper.

 First it took over 4 weeks to get the lab report for hsv  after the scheduling receptionist said a few days.  That seems a very abnormal   

 

FIRST DR VISIT

The first doctor, before I took blood test, refused to talk at facts at all about hsv2 and seemed so worried about my emotional state etc where I know I was calm and just wanted a diagnosis if also have hsv2.  he said they really don't know a lot about hsv and stuff and it was like the test itself and any action for preventing or diagnosing was a waste of time cause it is ambiguous.  Again no advice on prevention, no advice on statistics or really any factual medical discussion like hsv is black magic.  I didnt need a therapist I  just wanted the real deal on the situition which was completely opposite the way the Dr acted.

2nd Dr Visit.

A different doctor so I thought ok mabey not a disrespectful assuming and misleating experience.  But OMG the same type of crazy misleading behavior.   Did I test positive or not sir?  He wouldn't answer yes no or maybe or with anything professional just a similar misleading script .  Absolutely zero advice on avoidance.  Finally I said again hey can you please tell me did I pass or not.  you passed he said and rudely abruptly l.  left.  what the heck is going on here you think?

That seems like a very confusing situation. Did they give you your physical test results? Do you know what lab testing company your HSV test went through? Maybe you could try contacting them. I would honestly see a gynecologist for this type of thing because they might be more understanding and knowledgeable about it.

Your doctor should provide you with a print out of your results like most normal places do.  

So do you know whether you had an igg test or what sort of test was it.  I mean really what's passing the test it's not like it's a pass or fail it's positive or negative

      No Western Blot. High positives with both IgG & IgM tests plus symptoms .

      I doubt it is HSV. I agree with them. If anything I would look at other STDs for throat symptoms. Make sure you are clear from everything

      I went to see clinic and she said they only take a swab if I have blisters. She was very dismissive of everything I said - I heard somewhere that GPS don’t do blood tests anymore for herpes cause it was causing significant mental health problems due to being incurable  I’m ambivalent about blood tests as they don’t seem accurate and whatever answer I get there’s still a part of me that will be unsure and will fuel anxiety   i thought it was difficult to get genital herpes in throat?But the flu like symptoms afterwards was nothing I’ve experienced before and happened the day after. Would this be as serious as genital herpes ?    I just find it hard to sit and wait for any bump on my vagina and it’s all I can think about
