Herpes on Cervix - Help Please!

Recommended Posts

Roxanne11

Hello, 

Hoping to get some insight. I was tested positive by IgM blood test 2nd July and I check myself about 20 times daily for any OBs. Today I have noticed a change in my discharge which is now yellowy green with a metallic smell (no horrendous bacterial smell). I have been told that herpes lesions can be on the cervix and that my discharge should be an indicator but apart from that how on earth would I know?!? I had severe prodome symptoms yesterday (tingly, electric shocks and numbness). I don't think my doc will check as I'm waiting on results from another swab this Thursday. 

Is there any other way of knowing I am having an OB on my cervix? Discharge has many reasons but this discharge is particularly odd for me!

Please help as I now have a partner I don't want to infect, please :( 

Thank you!

Hey @Roxanne11 I feel the best thing to do is mutually test with your new partner and go with the result.

Hi Wilso, 

Thanks for responding. My partner was tested when we got back together, he got negative IGG for both and so did I but got a positive IGM 5.5 weeks after exposure with someone else. So we know his not infected. Should I be running to the doctor to get my cervix swabbed because of this discharge? Just spoke to a nurse on a sexual health chatline and she said cervix herpes is so rare they don't check. Gosh, I'm just getting different opinions from different doctors that I don't know who to believe anymore - the information is not consistent!! :(

@Roxanne11 if you were infected you would have had lesions at the time. Discharge now many weeks after possible infection can not really bare muxh relationship to an infection with nothing else arising.

What this all means is that you’re highly likely to test negative at 12 weeks past last exposure.

I do hope you are right! I definitely have not had any breakout or lesion. I've only had symptoms recently i.e this weekend I've had a number of red bumps/spots (from 1 to 20) come and go plus bad irritation at either side of vaginal entry from sex which caused two red sores equally on both side. All of these symptoms came and went in a 24 or 48 hour period - assuming herpes lesions don't subside this quick? Now this green discharge...

Are there many people out there that have reported positive IgM then came back negative IgG? I've read many having positive IgM but they never come back to report how their future testing went so I don't know if I should take any comfort that I may be negative at 12 weeks (which is next week yay!)

      How long after you had sex with this woman did you exhibit symptoms? What makes you think she has herpes?

      Hi she got the cold sore a couple days ago after oral . Always use a condom. She isn’t got herpes as far as I’m aware but she got a cold after she performed oral on me . She sent me a pic of the cold sores.  I don’t know why they didn’t do blood tests. I have read a PCR test is accurate. I don’t know how to get closure from this.

      Im no admin, but ive seen many folks share photos looking for info. I think its ok.  If I may ask, how long after having sex with this woman did the symptoms appear?  Ive heard that pc swabs are pretty accurate.. Did this woman tell you she has herpes, or did you hear it through a third party?  I dont see why they wouldnt give you the iGg / iGm blood test. If im not mistaken, you can order one yourself and go to a local Quest/Labcorp (depending on where you live)  i assume the cold sores are on her mouth? Did you see them, or did she tell you about them?

      Hey @K1009 that all sounds a typical experience of transmission between partners. Please take heart, after the first few months, many people experience extremely few outbreaks of any with gHSV-1. Also you cannot feasibly give this back to your partner, you are now concordant sexually in terms of HSV and your immune systems will protect you from further infection.
