      Not a lot to go on.  UTI symptoms are mostly during the initial outbreak.  Not during recurrences.     therefore it doesn’t sound like herpes since it is only UTI symptoms.

      I assume you gave oral sex to whomever back 20 days ago?   hsv2 is very unlikely to infect the oral cavity and if so, unlikely to show symptoms.     also transmitting to thick skin like face skin is harder than the lips/ mucous membranes.     I don’t believe this looks like herpes.  They look filled with pus like a pimple /ingrown hair.

      Hi, After getting tested for hsv2, my results were “indeterminate” and I was negative for all other diseases. I had protected sex ~20 days ago. Just a few days ago, these bumps appeared on my chin and over the course of 2 days have disappeared. Are these herpes? thank you in advance

      Im glad you commented not about the same old song though. We'll see how far they go with the research Dr. Deepak Shukla and his team have been studying bx795 for the last 2-3 years dropping a study every year or so since 2018. This is only they're second one on hsv2 I believe. Also Im sure it wouldn't be impossible for those that have hsv to crowdfound and have research done for us to answer some question kinda like all these breast cancer  or how we've done for fred hutch who asked 50,000 initially and then 100k to test an actual vaccine not an already somewhat of a common compound.

      I’ve never been able to fully accept such logic although I believe there is an element to it and absolutely there are financial drivers at play. Not when you’ve witnessed the psychology on the ground to my thinking anyhow... I get the expression of your dichotomy... I was watching a clip awhile back about a naturopath fighting a massive ban on natural supplements by the FDA. He stated from his communications the FDA simply seemed to trust Pharmaceutical companies more. Many of them would have HSV...  I had a great visual analogy on it posted here. Unfortunately it got censored. Possibly as it was in the cure section and it insulted the allopathic kiddies, which wasn’t my intention, possibly maybe due to the thoughtstream in the majority of society that most treatment options should come from the pharmacological approach...so might try my luck on a re-post of it in my grassroots section.  That said I don’t have the rest of my life to study it... too busy... And I am meant to be taking a break from this forum...

Possible HSV 2 Diagnosis. Very sad.

Hi everyone,

I went to the doctor today and got swabbed for an ulceration I have on the outside of my vagina. The doctor thinks it could be HSV 2 but I won't know the results for another two to five days. I'm very distraught and feel like life itself is over. I know it's not but I cant help but feel that way. I've attached photos below and want to know if any of you have experienced HSV 2 that looks similar to this. I was prescribed an antiviral medication so I feel certain that this is genital herpes. However, the uncertainty is killing me and not knowing has me feeling the dark. Any feedback or advice is much appreciated.  

Thank you for your time.

As any ulceration there is suspect but that's nothing from what I've seen in people with pos swabs. It could very well be bacteria or something else. It's easier said than done but try to relax until you get the results. Was there any sex days or weeks prior to this showing up?

Yes there was sex prior to this (probably a week ago), and it was unprotected. Thank you so much for the feedback! I will try to relax

Just an update: Everything came back negative. It appears to be a severe yeast infection.
