Test Results @20 weeks

Recommended Posts

Test results at 20 weeks

>0.9 = positive

Hsv 1:  25.0 

Hsv 2: 0.8

So all the recunrring bump like lessions only experienced post exposure were mere coincidences? And then there are the other symptoms.

Nerve pain in extremities still persist and is getting quite debilitating. Neurologist has prescribed tramadol, Lyrica, renerve and ibuprofen.

Started the course yesterday. Hope it's going to improve my symptoms.

Also quite concerned about my high negative of 0.8 which is borderline.

At 20 weeks @Sharknado if you had an active, recent HSV2 infection you'd be well over the 3.0 mark. Also there has been some data pointing to people of African and Asian descent naturally have higher values with Elisa based testing in the negative range so I would take that into account as well and try to not take it as a way to play the "BUT WHAT IF" game.

Hopefully the nerve pain medications will help your pain. The HSV1 value is pretty standard for someone who has a long term infection that tends to have OBs.

It’s negatIve for HSV-2. It may be that your HSV-1 is just lifting the needle on the HSV-2 result. It is also possible that the lab reports the results that way. Regardless you are clear if genital herpes.

@WilsoInAus the lab offered me some credit as a result of the initial combo test mistake. I took another hsv 2 Igg which registered a 0.6. This was 2 and a half weeks after the 0.8. 

The lab is based in Germany and uses a diasorin chemiluminescent immunoassay test. Can you tell me anything about this testing model? Possibly in relation to my high negative?

@WilsoInAus can you share your thoughts on the above?

Yes this is a very clear negative for HSV-2 mate. You are clear of genital herpes.

Couldn’t he have Genital HSV1?

No, testing confirmed an older HSV-1 infection that is almost certainly oral.

Genital HSV-1 would be extremely unlikely to cause the symptoms listed by the OP.

      Update: I plan on getting tested in mid November, so about a month from now, it’s been 6 months since lip breakout and after taking olive leaf extract recently, I think I finally have the anal itch under control, it’s virtually non existent so I’m hoping for improvement over the next month, I’ll keep y’all posted

      I think someone else posted about this. I read the same article, it's exciting news lets hope it succeeds.

      My testicles itch badly too , I usually take a cool bath with epsom salts to stop the itch . I have had the itching off and on for years. Your not alone.

      I have to agree. I'm actually...fine? I freaked out at my first OB last month, but then after reading all the information out there, and starting taking care of myself, I don't think about it most days. There is the occasional anxiety and I haven't worked up the courage to tell people except my bf, but I read a lot about people talking like its the end of the world (which makes me think "Should I be worrying more?"). Of course, everyone's feelings are valid, but, personally, I wish I had someone to talk to about this that isn't completely distraught.
