Hsv 1 negative then positive

Recommended Posts

Walkbyfaith2018

I had a primary genital outbreak in March from a new partner. I had full on flu symptoms and all. The culture from the lesion was positive for hsv 2 negative for 1. Blood test showed postive igm but no antibodies for 1 or 2 which was to be expected as it was a new infection. Well I had my doctor redo my blood work now that it has been a little while and it came back positive for 1 and 2. This is a different office than my primary testing was done at. Is it possible that the 1 is still from childhood or did I newly acquire 1 and 2? I did not get an outbreak on my mouth with the primary outbreak just genitals. My main concern is if i do indeed have oral herpes and if it is new or if it could be from when I was a kid. I have not had cold sores as an adult and don't remember when I was a kid. I have children and one being only 2 months old so I am worried about exposing them if I do have oral.

The hsv 2 value was 10 and hsv 1 was 3.23

What are the reference ranges for the tests? Is >1.1 positive, or maybe 20 for example?

      Postherpetic neuralgia 15% of the time is hsv1. It lives in your nerve ganglia. I don't see why that's so far fetched when it is well supported by research.

      I have HSV & foot nerve pain. I am 100% sure it's from HSV. My Infectious Disease Dr, very well known in NJ, said it is a possibility, he is not ruling it out. There are many strains of HSV & the one I have affected my feet.  I take L-Lysine, Daily Complete Vitamins & Vitamin B-12. My heart goes out to you. I will pray you find relief. Keep your head up & think positive. Sending hugs. Keep us posted

      The chance of getting some HPV-Strain in life (as a person that is not abstinent) is literally about 99% i read. 
      And in 90% of cases the virus is gone after 2 years. And the chance of cancer is looooots smaller than 10% - you just go get your pap smears, so if something happens they know right away and they can treat it. Getting a positive pap smear at some point in life is super-common as a woman.

      I'd like to thank everyone for their input. Let's please keep things civil. I am going to continue with Acyclovir, until I feel my symptoms disappear. If they do not subside, I plan on consulting a physician again.

      So... this would be a revolutionary simple Solution, to an extreme problem: transmitting and getting STD's where condoms don't help.  And people don't give a fuck and noone answers.    Now we just have to find out if it works.  - Does it hinder herpes transmissions (and perhaps also other stuff like hpv) - What is the cost (per sex) - What is the practicality
