Venting Pt. 2


Recommended Posts

I'm laying here in my bed. A little upset. At myself for the most part. I have no one to blame but me. If I would've never kissed that girl. I would definitely know who I got it from and not be trying to figure out who gave me this shit. Being sexually reckless is very unwise. Anyway. My whole body is tingling and itching. So many thoughts in my head. Sigh 😕 

I guess I'll let my Dr know tomorrow about the genital lesions I saw.  I'll update you guys. Goodnight Everyone.

Hey "ChattyB"..... don't beat yourself up over this.... it's normal to be down about the situation, we've all been there!  But, you didn't do anything wrong.... being with someone is perfectly natural.... and sometimes it ends up the way it does.  Some of us were just unlucky enough to pick up the virus while doing what comes natural to all human beings.  Work with your doctor, see if he or she thinks you might benefit from taking an antiviral med.  Be sure to show your doctor any lesions on your genitals and get a swab test to help confirm what might be going on.  Just stay strong and take it one day at a time right now.... and again, go easy on yourself.  We are all here to help each other out so, reach out if you have questions or just want to vent....

Hi there @ChattyB welcome to the website.

Please read carefully what I have to say here. Your thinking about what may have happened is actually not feasible.

It all centres on your IgG test result. You cannot test that positive for HSV-1 within a few weeks of infection, it takes months upon months. It is all but certain that you have had HSV-1 since childhood. HSV-1 status very often has nothing to do with sexual activity - the bulk of it is transferred from family members. Once you have HSV-1, it is for life and you cannot get it again.

Therefore neither of your recent partners has infected you with HSV-1. It is not possible given the test result.

Your oral outbreak, if it is related herpes, is a recurrent outbreak of your long term infection. I would suggest this has been brought on by the stress you are under within your life at present.

You also have no reason to suspect a genital infection either. The symptoms you describe are not caused by herpes. They are caused by stress and anxiety however.

At some stage you may feel the need to investigate the HSV-2 outcome that I suspect is a false positive. But for now, I'd try to calm down, acknowledge these partners did not infect you with herpes and work out what you really want in life. To be honest, I doubt it involves either of these people but you need to work that out for yourself.

      Hey @Fernie hope you are going well. The doctor is spot on here. Many people with HSV-1 end up with slightly elevated results for HSV-2 that does not indicate infection with HSV-2. This persists from test to test for some people. The Westernblot would be useful to you, but will just confirm what is being said to you. Most people actually with HSV-2 test above 3.5 on those sorts of tests.

      Just got off the phone with a doctor and they said based off the history of my tests, it’s most likely a false positive.    they also said that because I have hsv1 that that could be causing the false positive

      How do you know you have hsv-2 orally.  I read that having hsv-2 orally is highly unlikely.

      I’m so confused and don’t know what to do.    Sorry for posting here so much but I’m just lost.   I’ve tested normal on these dates 7/14/2020 0.72 IGG , 10/28/2020 0.89 IGG.    Then I tested low positive 6/6/2021 1.11 IGG.    I went back after that test to confirm the abnormal results on 7/29/2021 0.78 IGG were the results which led me to believe that the first abnormal results were just wrong.    Fast forward to now I just got my results back this morning from 11/27/2021 1.17 IGG, were the results. I’m just so confused, don’t know what to do. I’m going to have a consultation over the phone with a physician today and I also reached out to Terri from Westover Heights.    At this point I’m considering a western blot and I’m so paranoid I also signed up for another full panel std testing. I’m just so confused and stressed out.  Hope my buddy @WilsoInAus sees this
