Blood Test Accuracy

Recommended Posts

Hoping i could get some clarity on this matter, apologise for the blabber below, cheeerrrrs.

So recently i have infected a person with genital herpes. I am extremely mortified and cant believe this has happened. I'm not fussed about myself i just don't want to hurt anyone else. 

Anyways i believe i have had GH for at least 2 yrs now and believe i caught it from a girl that gave me oral. Ever since then i get tingles, have had the odd bump and rash but has never ulcerated and is quick to disappear / heal. Following on from that there has been long periods where i have had no rash/blisters what so ever. 

So hears the dileema, when this all happened 2 yrs back i got tested (blood test and swab) and results came back negative for H2 but positive for H1. The doctor informed me that i dont have GH, and in future just be careful. As you can imagine i was relieved, but still not entirely convinced, so sought out for a 2nd opinion and got the same result..... Negative for H2. 🤔

I went on with my life,,,,,,, eventually i meet someone then was shocked for them to tell me that i gave them GH,. I feel horrible. 

Straight away i got tested swabs / bloodtest the lot, informed the doctor what happened and yet again negatives. Im so FFUCKCCKKSSSDK{K{KFPF confused. 

Is there any specialists out there that can help???? why would a bloodtest (Supposedly accurate) come back negative on multiple occasions.  

I am just really stressed out and would love to get on with my life, would love some solid answers. I feel even though i have had GH for quite a while, im new on the topic. If there is any additional information people can give me that would help. 

Thanks for your time please let me know your thoughts or questions if any. Would love to know if any has gone through something similar,,,, from the sounds of things it can be a tricky disease.

Hey @Confused86 I feel the most rational and simplest explanation is that you have an oral HSV-1 infection and infected a partner through oral sex.

This would mean that you do not have HSV on your genitals at all and do not have HSV-2 thus having the negative test.

I d half agree with Wilso. Likely you have GHSV1 infection. No idea why swabs are not coming up.

Swabs have been negative, but will keep persisting to find a solid answer. Couldnt of given her gh through oral, havnt had a cold sore since i was a kid.

Hey there, you can infect someone without a cold sore, we shed the virus from the area of infection. The virus is carried for life.
