Why did doctor seem like he was misleading

Recommended Posts


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   



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

      It should be noted that the Gates foundation was part of a venture capital group that gave Genocea $30 million in support of their vaccine development efforts in the period when their lead candidate was an HSV-2 therapeutic vaccine (GEN-003): https://xconomy.com/boston/2012/10/10/genocea-snags-30m-from-gates-foundation-vcs-for-new-vaccines/ They have also provided 30 million dollars to the University of Washington's HSV efforts.  This time specifically on research into whether suppressing HSV results in a reduction in HIV transmission: https://honeycomb.click/topic/77503-donations-to-fred-hutch-center/page/21/?tab=comments#comment-493474  Far from inactive in HSV research they provide significant funding in the context of reducing HIV transmission.  It's a well established fact that genital HSV greatly increases the probably contracting HIV from an infected partner.

      Human trials starting next year?  Not even close. It will be several years.

      Sounds like X-vaxs' biggest concern is prevention and erradication secondary..... 🤦🏻‍♂️

      It may be small scale but at least it shows me that I'm by far not the only one who isn't willing to disclose to casual partners anymore. The damage for oneself is too high to make it worth it imho: - seduction becomes difficult as guy if they know in advance - you're very likely to become a gossip object if it happens within your social circle - you get abandoned before it even starts to get intense - you end up lonely and depressed after being abandoned for such a reason Still, that doesn't answer the question if it's better to disclose properly out of nowhere during the relationship or wait for the symptoms to appear and pretend to be surprised and fake the doctor diagnosis afterwards. At the moment I think the true disclosure would be less likely to be accepted by the partner, but in case it works it would feel better in the end because there's less of a secret kept in the long run... and of course there's lower moral burden when disclosing earlier because you're handing over responsibility of risk exposure to the partner.
