Hi, me again. I thought I’d gotten over all the herpes obsession but now I’ve noticed red spots near my vagina entrance and I’m beyond panicked. They are on both sides, they don’t itch and aren’t really sore, which I know usually is symptoms for herpes. I’ve had them for 3 days now and they haven’t necessarily changed shape, which I know is common. Someone please help me! What is this? I’m on my period, is it irritation? I’ve been with the same guy for months now so I’ve either had it and not known or possibly got it from him. It’s not letting me upload pictures, but I’ve copied a link where I uploaded them. Please someone check them out and help me https://patient.info/forums/discuss/do-i-have-herpes--761234
Would love any advice on if these symptoms seem like hsv or if anyone else has had consistent negative testing yet present with intense symptoms. Doctors I have seen do not think it is hsv. But cannot give me any other explanation.
Had sex in 11/8 and symptoms started 11/15 and have wavered in intensity and changed yet been consistent through out the last 5 months.
Initial symptoms: vaginal itching, thick white discharge, anal itching, two tears in labia. Doctor thought it could be yeast was treated and with no change to my symptoms.
Following symptoms: chills, body aches, smooth bumps that burned slightly on buttock, headaches, nerve pain in hands and feet as well as wrist. Constipation and numbness on clit. Watery/bubbly discharge even though no internal lesions were present. Also had grey discharge for one day.
Next symptoms: burning sensation, tingling, cooling sensation in groin, back thighs, and buttocks. which has continued for the last 4 months with little relief. Also raw and irritated feeling in thighs and labia area. discharge goes from a sticky whiteish consistency to a thick white consistency.
Symptoms on mouth: tingling, burning, splitting, and tears on one side of lip. These seems appear off and on occasionally.
The most intense symptoms of all is the nerve pain. It feels like I cant escape it. And it is the main symptoms that leads me to believe I have hsv.
I have had no noticeable lesions, blisters or coldsores.
Has been negative for yeast, BV, and other stds.
Tears were swab with a viral culture: negative.
IgG test at 2 weeks, 5 weeks, 12 weeks 18 weeks: negative.
I have had the western blot kit sent to me, just worried about finding a doctor that will agree to sign the paperwork. Planning to get the WB to give me answers.
Partner refused to get tested for HSV and claims he is clean which makes me even more suspicious.
I need help to determine whether this is a some kind of HIV or not. But i did try to pull out some hair a week before i started experiencing this itches and see some bumps on my scrotum. I also have an unprotected sex. So i dont know really. Everytime i think i have HIV i become depress. I wanna get checked but im afraid. Please help
I had red spots in my foreskin which started to appear mostly after masturbation and they were totally painless and they dissappeared next day every time,it started in march last year and doctor said it was just normal fungal infection and i applied anti fungal creams and it was okay but again after sometime i was getting these spots and they disappeared next day like before but totally painless and then it stopped and and after 5-6 months i noticed that dots in foreskin after masturbation and i think it was result of masturbating by retracting foreskin again and again because my foreskin is not that much loose and maybe the skin get irritated and get those red spots so i got an hsv test which says hsv 1-2igg=<0.500 hsv 1-2 igm=<0.500 is it negative or equivocal? I know its negative below 0.90 and equivocal between 0.90-1.10 but what does 0.500 means does anyone knows about this?
Oct 31/20: unprotected encounter (no penetration, but lots of genital to genital rubbing)
HSV IGG CLIA blood test 13.5 weeks after:
HSV 1 - Non Reactive
HSV 2 - Reactive
HSV IGG CLIA blood test 15 weeks after (repeated test 9 days later, same lab... only one lab that does this testing in Ontario, CA):
HSV 1 - Inconclusive
HSV 2 - Non Reactive
Last time I tested in 2018, both were non reactive. Haven’t been with anyone in two years until Oct/20.
Anyone else experience such conflicting results?
Which test should I trust? Are false positive or false negatives more common at 4 months?
