I just tested again and I'm scared. The Dr said by Fri which is my Bday for the results I'm very nervous. Need some hopeful thoughts had anyone tested neg up to 9 months

There was nothing to swab I got a new Dr and she looked today and she listened she also tested me for Hep B as well she asked me if I wanted an HIV test I told her that I have to take baby steps she was very comforting. Fingers crossed

That’s my point, the chances of no lesions to swab AND no antibodies don’t stack up.

I hope ur right!!! But I have hsv1 oral so that's probably why the lesions are not showing up because I have partial immunity. I'm trying to stay optimistic because I don't want to get my hopes up high and it comes back positive. Thx for the support I really need it! If and when this test comes back neg I don't want to re-test. I know that it's my choice but what's ur opinion on re-testing again

That's probably a good idea :) I was exposed 11.5 weeks ago, next week will be the 12 week mark. Did a blood test at 5.5 weeks post exposure and got a positive IgM result. With the help of doctors, people here and other forums, I'm thinking and hoping I'm negative. I've done 3 swabs, all negative and have not had an outbreak. IgM apparently is not a reliable test and shouldn't have been drawn on me...

Yea the waiting and wondering also has me anxious - I check myself about 20 times a day!! I'm testing next Monday and should get results next Thursday. 

I'm rooting for you also! We're in it together lol :P I'm hoping the both of us can get good news and move on with our lives soon!!

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