Hey @Ole the combined test is not so good when positive as you don’t know type or whether you have both.

However negative is negative for both types with high credibility. The visual diagnosis looks like it may well have been wrong.

Thanks Wilson. U are always nice . I just want to make sure because symptoms keep coming and as I can’t afford western blot I think bkk have more advanced health care system and their test will be more reliable .

@Ole that is not so good and makes it imperative to identify what is going on. Hopefully you can obtain the type specific test. Keep an open mind for other possible causes too.

My exposure is 2 year ago and I have read that there is serorevrsion with times .do u think it is possible to seroreverse within 2 years period .I have also read the first ob occur on the place where the virus enter . Being used a condom it is possible to get ob on the glans only for the first time .because I used condom during the exposure and I am pretty sure my glans didn't touch anything from her

Seronversion happens but when ones had the virus many years and no recurrences. 2 years in antibodies will still be there im sure. If you've tested negative after 2 years. Herpes wasn't the issue.

      Mate if you’ve been there to help the girls in the sex trucks when they leave the mining sites early in the morning, then you would know. My problem is that what we have here is people pretending to care about people with HIV only to trample all over them in some blind attempt to promote a HSV-2 cure. Yes there’s a link, could it be biological as well as behavioural? Who knows. What I know is that changing behaviour is core to addressing the HIV situation or curing it. We could easily have a HSV-2 cure it will probably not make one bit of difference to the HIV incidence.

      Your problem seems to be specific to the behaviour of people who have both HSV and HIV.  There are various efforts underway in the developing world to prevent the spread of STD's via the use of condoms. As you know safe sex doesn't protect you from herpes virus, especially if you are unaware if a partner has it.  So which specific behaviours are you suggesting we curb, instead of putting efforts toward HIV & HSV related cases? 
    • WilsoInAus
      Exactly, HSV-2 and HIV are related to sexual behaviour, but to write it off and say therefore let’s focus on a cure for HSV-2 is criminal. Lets do something about the behaviour NOW.

      Thank you, Mike.  I think for individuals to characterize the research of the relation between HSV and HIV as frivolous and only related to the sexual behaviours and habits of people who have the diseases is a great disservice, and is somewhat insulting.  Clearly HIV and HSV can be associated to sexual behaviour. However to write off scores of research papers just because you look down on people who have both diseases is anti-progress and encourages ignorance.  Every bit of HIV research and success with clinicals I hear about makes me that much more hopeful for HSV.  Thanks for sharing this article. 
    • WilsoInAus
      Oh dear, we have been down this road before. “Adjustment” does NOT mean “control”. My statement is accurate.  In fact I am the one that is being less dangerous than you! You suggest that removing HSV-2 will reduces the incidence of HIV. I say changing sexual practices will be more beneficial - and nations should invest in that for a real impact NOW.
