Hello, I'm new here. I just recently got results but can't speak to a doctor until next week. Can someone help me with my results? I'm freaking out...  1gG 44.50 H (0.00-0.90 index) 2gG <0.91 (0.00-0.90 index)

Hey @Pamz welcome to the website.

The result shows that you clearly have a HSV-1 infection. This will almost undoubtedly be a childhood oral infection. Do you remember ever getting oral cold sores when a child? Do they reoccur today?

HSV-2, which is usually a genital herpes infection, is a clear negative for you.

So why did you test? What symptoms did you have? Was there a sexual exposure you were concerned about?

I had a burning sensation in my genitals and it was so bad I couldn't even sit, but the doctor told me it was not a herpe, it was more of q cut. I used to get them as a kid with weather changes. I'm scared, I don't know what to tell my partner, my doctor wasn't much help on details. According to her as long as I don't have a breakout I should be fine....

Hey @Pamz you have oral cold sores just like 70% of the population. 

Your genital issues will have nothing to do with HSV-1.

Your partner also probably has HSV-1. As you’re now in the relationship and no one asked for testing regarding HSV, there is no need for any disclosure now regarding oral cold sores. However there would be no issues in sharing what is going on for you with your partner.

Up to 50 percent of genital herpes is caused by hsv1

That’s likely to be true, but. It relevant in the OPs case given the testing.

If you are having genital symptoms. . and test positive for hsv1 its very relevant. Op may indeed have ghsv1

Yeah @Lukeherpwalker I agree. Many people just see the igg tests and listen to random internet strangers about their results being from a childhood infection and on their mouth.

 The fact is I got genital herpes because someone didn’t want to believe their HSV1 was genital when it was. Blood tests never can tell you location. Fact. Let’s deal with facts instead of highly unsupported opinions in the name of a life long virus shall we?

@Pamz the sad truth of the matter is unless some type of blister or bump or papercut type sore appears in your genital area, you may never truly be certain if you do or don’t have genital herpes.  You definitely have HSV1, but the blood tests doesn’t say where it is in your body.  If something does pop up down there, make sure you go get it swabbed ASAP.  Call your doctor immediately and make an urgent care appoinment that day to be seen and swabbed for herpes.

But yea, that is why the tests for this virus is pretty much garbage.

You got HSV-1 from genital to genital contact? Do you have any idea how rare that is? Extremely, extremely rare, to the point that a lot of experts are dubious that it's even possible.

      All I have been doing is research over the past three weeks and I still don’t even know where to begin this post because it’s still so shocking. This post might be long but I hope someone will read it and help me.  I feel like the doctors don’t really truly know about this topic in depth and I have no one to learn from and I’m so so scared.
      My first outbreak was 10 months ago. I had just had sex with a new person and started my period.  The doctor said it was BV and a yeast infection.  I knew that it couldn’t just be that.  My labia was terribly swollen and cut up that it was so painful to go to the bathroom.  Got better but then was cut up again about 2 weeks later and I think after antibiotics really had a yeast infection too.  About 3 weeks ago I felt really itchy one day and the next day I had a cut on my inner labia and started my period that same day.  After closely inspecting it I realized that maybe it could be a blister.  I got the doctor to swab it and they confirmed it was hsv2.  From the time the doc saw it my labia did get a little more raw but def not as bad as what happened 10 months ago.  Of course at that point my stress levels are high and I went back to the doctor a week later to get tested for everything else to make sure I was ok.  So of course high stress again.  Once my initial cut was healed I shaved and ended up with what I think was another outbreak but this time next to my outer labia.  I went back and forth if it was from shaving but I feel like there were two spots and they had itched and were painful. Those spots are not fully healed but no longer hurt.  This morning and for most of the day I felt a sunburn type feeling on my right butt.  When I’m looking at it now I swear that I can see these small bump patches that might look like little blisters ... I don’t think they look like regular little butt bumps. They are so small and it’s hard to see but it does feel tender.  So this makes it seem like the 3rd little outbreak within 3 weeks.   I have always had very dry sensitive skin and I have been very super aware of every little thing since this diagnosis.  I’m supposed to start my period next week and I’m terrified that with it will come a 4th little outbreak.  This is not as painful as that first outbreak but it’s more upsetting cause it feels like it’s lasting longer.
       
      1. Does any of what I’m describing sound normal.  Can you get it in 3 different spots within 3 weeks like this? Why does it keep restarting and it didn’t last time.  Is it ever going to end!? 
      2. How can I figure out what this is going to be like for me if every single circumstance has had different symptoms.
      3. I thought it was mostly supposed to be in the same place so why does this seem like 3 different places? Also, the spot on my butt if it’s hsv2 is this just a place where it can show up or did I spread it there?
      4. If this is a spot on my butt does this mean that I can shed there? I’m so terrified of spreading this to my family.  The spot on my butt is in a place that could be potentially touched by someone as it’s on the top and wouldn’t maybe be covered by s bathing suit. If I’m holding my niece on my hips and her legs happen to rub against that part of my butt and I’m shedding could I pass it to her.  
      5. I went 10 months between these outbreaks and I’m hoping that I won’t have to deal with this often but I’m not understanding why all of the sudden for 3 weeks I’m having something new pop up each week.  I’m so scared that this is going to be my new normal.  I just want to feel like me again and comfortable in my own skin and for the last three weeks all I’ve felt is uncomfortable in my skin.  
      I’d appreciate any help that someone who has been through this can help. I feel hopeless

      Does anybody have any suggestions on how you deal with pain at work or when you are out? I have hsv2 I am in the beginning of a break out this one is bad. I can’t really afford to call in so if anybody has any tips I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks.

      It's been five months since possible exposure and keep having symptoms. I keep experiencing thigh and pelvic pain and thick discharge. Also get shooting pains vaginally and on my butt. I just saw a small white bump inside my labia and next to it is a small open sore. They don't hurt when touched but the rest of my vagina hurts when touched or sitting. Does any of this sound like anyone's ob? I got tested in October but I'm scared I tested too early and now having trouble getting a doctor to retest me

      I'm 99% confident that these are caused by Herpes. This is what they looked like when I first caught the virus, and in the same spots as well, although now much milder and smaller in size.  I have tested positive via swab when I first got the virus, and two times via blood test. However, since several people here are doubting my symptoms are caused by HSV, I might do another swab just to be sure. It's still good to rule anything else out beforehand.

      And btw  @ayekayelle I’m sorry you’re considering divorce. I hope you are able to work it out with him. But if you’re not happy I think it’s worth taking the risk of leaving! You deserve to be happy!

      Ikr! I’ll have guys be like “oh yeah you’re right, you’re not gross or less valuable but it is a deal breaker” I don’t really blame them (because I am still coming to terms with it being “not a big deal”)

      It's very possible he or you were mostly a carrier. Neither one of you have to have sores all you have to do is shed.
