Western blot test

Recommended Posts

So I just received my western blot test in the mail. So I have to go to a physician or can I just go to any lab that takes blood and administers test. Has anyone who’s done the western blot have some information and advice? Thanks!

If youre going through terri warren. Google anylabtestnow in your area you can go there and they'll draw the blood. They can either send it out or you can send it yourself. Also your Dr can administer it if he's willing. How long did u wait before doing this test

I am not going through Terri Warren. Should I go through her? I’ve checked out her website. It’s been 7 months since possible exposure. I never had flu like symptoms but I grew concerned when I had a sore that appeared to be a pimple and had some tingling around my pelvic area. So I got tested and had a 2.08 HSV 2 result. A month later tested again and had a .91 result for HSV2 and 5.00 HSV 1. I’ve never had cold sores and I still haven’t had anything on my lips but got a sore along my gums a couple months ago that lasted just for a few days. I recently got retested and had the same result for HSV 1 and 3.12 for HSV 2. All tests were blood test.

      I have been diagnosed with genital herpes, but never with a specific type. I'm also scared now that I might have oral herpes. I have a few questions. Will the blood test tell me if I have both, or just if I have herpes in general? Is it possible to get a false positive result from a swab? I ask this because my initial genital test was a swab test that came back positive one time, and negative another. Since the positive result I've lived as though I have genital herpes, but now that I think I might have oral herpes, I'm unsure how to proceed. Any advice is appreciated. Thank you.

      Hey.  I'm sorry you are going thru all of this.  I've read it not uncommon to have an additional breakout within 30 days of the initial one.  Just know, in time, it does get better.  Less painful..less frequent.  Also, the medical community is moving closer to a cure every day.  I truly believe it's not very far into the future.  This is a good place to talk...dont isolated yourself.

      I only take them when i feel something or a symptom.I do not take everyday and that has been working.Best thing for me is to get enough sleep and less stress.

      I was diagnosed Monday by swab on my genitals. This is my first outbreak, I’ve been on Acyclovir since Monday. Everything was clearing up until today I noticed a new blister. 😭 Does this mean the Acyclovir is not working? Is it normal for more to pop up? The diagnosis alone has me feeling completely helpless and alone, now with the outbreak coming back I don’t know I can do this anymore. I have been crying all week.
