Is this normal?

Recommended Posts

Okay so I got herpes, had the initial outbreak, got on suppressive meds and a few months later missed a few days. Had a minor OB, started meds back up and was fine for alittle over a year. Now I’ve had 3 back to back OBs. I’m telling you it doesn’t completely heal before the next starts and it’s in the exact same spot. All over my minora labia near the opening of my vagina..so these have been weird. Got the normal prodome symptoms. I got blisters, they took a few days and started to heal, and now the entire area is white. No blisters. Just white and looks alittle swollen. Then a few days later the next set starts. Guys I accept herpes and all but it’s been 28 days of constant Ob and it’s startong to get me down. Anyone else relate to this? Also my diet hasn’t changed, haven’t been super sunburnt, and haven’t had any other stressors. Haven’t had sex since April 14, protected with my Bf who I have disclosed to. And immune system isn’t down (that I’m aware of? Is something going on inside that is causing this I can’t detect)? Ugh. please help.

Any change in hormones? Birth control?  

Any of these can cause a shift I outbreaks.  

Other than that sometimes you just have several Ina row.  You could try upping your dosage of anti-virals until it gets under control then taper back off.

      Hey @Fernie hope you are going well. The doctor is spot on here. Many people with HSV-1 end up with slightly elevated results for HSV-2 that does not indicate infection with HSV-2. This persists from test to test for some people. The Westernblot would be useful to you, but will just confirm what is being said to you. Most people actually with HSV-2 test above 3.5 on those sorts of tests.

      Just got off the phone with a doctor and they said based off the history of my tests, it’s most likely a false positive.    they also said that because I have hsv1 that that could be causing the false positive

      How do you know you have hsv-2 orally.  I read that having hsv-2 orally is highly unlikely.

      I’m so confused and don’t know what to do.    Sorry for posting here so much but I’m just lost.   I’ve tested normal on these dates 7/14/2020 0.72 IGG , 10/28/2020 0.89 IGG.    Then I tested low positive 6/6/2021 1.11 IGG.    I went back after that test to confirm the abnormal results on 7/29/2021 0.78 IGG were the results which led me to believe that the first abnormal results were just wrong.    Fast forward to now I just got my results back this morning from 11/27/2021 1.17 IGG, were the results. I’m just so confused, don’t know what to do. I’m going to have a consultation over the phone with a physician today and I also reached out to Terri from Westover Heights.    At this point I’m considering a western blot and I’m so paranoid I also signed up for another full panel std testing. I’m just so confused and stressed out.  Hope my buddy @WilsoInAus sees this
