Scared and nervous on June the 16th I had unprotected sex. A few days later I could not stop peeing there was a lot of burning down there too. No bumps I do have some bumps on the inside of my checks  I got tested on the 22nd full screen. It all came back negative. And my symptoms have started to clear. Still have a few bumps in mouth on cheeks.  my doctor said I had ngu. And that what's causing the pain down there and my mouth is unrelated  Just worried it was too early to test but he said if it was std with those symptoms it would have shown up on the lab. Is this true?

Whyyyyy

A new HSV infection would not have shown up that quickly in a blood test.

3 months after exposure is considered a good amount of time for hsv to show up in a blood test. (Be sure to ask to be tested for hsv specifically, it is not often included in a "full panel") If the bumps have fluid, you can try to have those swabbed. A positive swab is considered conclusive, a negative swab is not. (this is because a swab tests for the presence of the virus itself, a blood test checks for antibodies created by your immune system)

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

      How long has this happened to you? What was swabbed? Results yet?

      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?
