So ive tested negative for most std's but my doctor never gives me the viral load count?... Is this because im testing negative??.. How can i contract something if its undetectable?? Does that mean it's gone??
Okay I will provide a brief back ground then would just like opinions or advice. I had been extremely ill with a bad head cold for about 3 weeks that antibiotics were not helping. Even now 5 weeks later I still wake up with mild throat pain. I started feeling burning in my vagina and automatically assumed this was a yeast infection as I have been with my daughters father for 9 years now and have had 0 other partners during this time. About 4 days after the original vaginal symptoms I noticed small white ulcers inside my Labia (looked exactly like a canker sore but on my vagina). I immediately went to gyno who told me that it was herpes and started me on valtrex. I had taken a fluconazole 2 days prior as I had assumed yeast infection. The next day my symptoms were gone and the Ulcers were practically healed as well. I don’t know if I can attribute this to fluconazole or valtrex. I had cultures done which were both negative, and igm which was negative both 1 and 2. Then an igg negative type 1 and positive type 2 at a 1.11. I was devastated to get a result 0.01 over being equivocal or negative. Also of note my partner got tested and he was negative for everything and has never had symptoms. So I believed I must have got this over 10 years ago when I was in high school and carried it this whole time and even had it when I had my daughter. I decided to go to my previous gyno (went to a new doctor first time as I had just moved). He ordered another hsv2 igg. And this one was NEGATIVE at a 0.84. I am conflicted as to what I should do. I did not think my “outbreak” looked like herpes personally, but I had an expert telling me it did. I was just so extremely sick. The second test was only 3 weeks after the first. This has been extremely emotionally exhausting for me. Especially as a mother because my mind was spinning thinking I could have hurt my child at birth or given it to her in her short life so far. My partner doesn’t think I need more testing and I am leaning toward just waiting till my next pregnancy and doing another blood test then. Is that crazy? Thanks
Hey guys I need some feedback and insight,
A year ago I took a blood test for herpes and I got Herpes Simplex Virus 1/2 test, IGM is positive with a ratio of 1.60. I followed up with an HSV 1 & 2 IGG specific test and got negative results. I am concerned on my results and unsure of what to do or what to think. I haven't had any outbreaks or any signs of herpes. I thought about getting another blood test done to double check, but I need some opinions on what to do.
Please help me!!!
Hi yall, so I got tested for HSV and I had my index show up .10 for both 1 and 2.
Then my buddy got tested and he's index were .35 for 1 and .20 for 2.
My question is why are there different ranges of the IgG testing. Both are negative I understand that but why the ranges in the test results?
Can anyone help explain this to me.
I just found out I'm positive for HSV 2 after having my yearly check up, never had a noticeable outbreak.. A week before I was tested I had unprotected sex. I told him right away (very hard to do) and he got tested about 2 weeks after the "event". His results are positive via blood test, he didn't ask which test or the actual numbers. He has no symptoms and it's been about 3 weeks now. Everything I'm reading says the antibodies don't show up right away, so now I'm thinking he might have already had it. Does anyone have any experience with a positive test so soon? My mind won't let me stop thinking that he is lying (or really didn't know he already had it) and I'm taking all the blame, willingly at that.
