GF using PCR blood test to hide herpes?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! I’m new here and I’d like to tell my story and get some feedback if you don’t mind. I’ve done extensive research on my own and I need some other opinions. 

I started dating a girl and having regular unprotected sex. When we started dating I suggested we get tested. I was negative for everything, she said she had been tested 2 months prior and was clean. Obviously I believed her whole heartedly. Exactly 5 months after We first had sex I developed a very small lesion. We immediately got tested again and we’re both negative. Shook it off as some weird skin thing. Dumb I know but all was well in the world haha. 

Fast forward 8 months. I’m deployed overseas and another lesion appears. Same spot. At this point I know this cannot be coincidence so I start really doing my research. I promptly got my IGG test done and the results were positive. I looked up my old test results and saw that test was also IGG (now that I knew what that meant). It was a stretch but I concluded I had contracted it probably just before I started sleeping with my girlfriend. Since, it CAN take up to 6 months for antibodies to form. 

*important note- I was always faithful* 

I decided I would keep these results to myself until I returned to the states to avoid explaining this on the phone. You can imagine the thoughts she would’ve had. 

When I returned home I explained it all to her and she surprisingly didn’t care at all. She said she loved me and that if she hasn’t gotten it over the last year and a half she felt safe as long as I was careful about outbreaks. 

Thank you for reading this far it gets exciting now haha. 

Afyer a week home some friends pull me aside and tell me my girlfriend was running around with multiple dudes while I was away. I confronted her and she came clean. I said I wanted her to get tested again to prove she wasn’t the one to give it to me from the start because now her integrity was in question. I asked her to be sure she got IGG. She sent me her results from a DNA PCR blood test that were negative. We had a blowout fight and haven’t talked since. 

3 months later here I am trying to just move on but it hit me I don’t know what DNA PCR test is. I did some googling and found that it is only for systemic infections and useless for diagnosing mucosal and skin infections. There’s not that much info on it compared to other tests which leads me to believe it’s not often used. 

This means she was never truly tested, right? Would she be so clever as to request that test to be deceitful and stay in denial? Maybe idk. She was blatant cheater. 

I think it’s most likely I contracted it from her but she never knew. She just gets what the gyno orders. But why would they use that test? 

obviously none of it matters. I need to pick better women haha. But I’d really like to hear what the experts here have to say. Thank you for your time.

I’m afraid in the end you are well shod of her as they say. 

The chances lie more with the doctor being at fault her than her though in terms of a useless PCR on blood test. 

I doubt an informed doctor would requisition knowingly a wrong test on request. 

I don’t know why or how, but some doctors just donthis sort of thing. Very frustrating.

I have done pcr test 2 times.And result came negative.But Igg hsv1 test was positive.

So to my knowledge the hsv don't stay in blood(more than 95 perecent of time).

As wilson said , Have pcr test is  useless and inefficient.

      I’m not following mate. You simply do not have herpes. Do you care if your partner has herpes? Has she tested?

      I know it’s genitalia because I had my outbreak there and sore was swabbed as hsv1 genitalia.
    • WilsoInAus
      Hey mate, really glad you sought out the swab. Regardless of what it all is, I hope it clears and you get back to your normal self soon.
