I got a blood test done that was about 110-117 days post possible exposure (can't pinpoint the exact date). Never had an outbreak, but from what I've read that doesn't really matter...people can have it w/o symptoms.

The test was Negative. I'm kicking myself in the butt for not waiting the full 120 days, but I could not take the waiting.

I'm basically still obsessing about this and still concerned about having it.

Is it more likely I do not have it, or would you guys recommend another test?

Well, if you figure 113.5 (avg. of est. time since exposure)/120=.946, I'd say you can relax 95% of the way RIGHT NOW. If you really need that last 5% confirmation get tested again if it's convenient, but I think you're obsessing unnecessarily. I wonder how arbitrary the 120-day thing is, anyway.

Sounds like you don't have it to me. Be happy!

VERY arbitrary...

The blood test looks for antibodies in your blood.... Its not like on day 119 you have no antibodies, and then on day 120... BOOM there they are...

Never had an outbreak

The test was Negative

Dude... You're fine....

No outbreak... test was negative... So what if it was 3 days or 10 days early...

You are fine....

Stop the obsession... please.... your worrying would have brought on the outbreak..... consider it a learning experience - move on.

I'd ask why you are so positive you were exposed, but I have a feeling it won't make a difference -

      Yes, but every married person who I found out about that has this waited 6-8 months into the relationship to disclose it. But maybe you're right. If I had told her 6-7 months in, she'd still have Googled it and flipped out, and maybe it would have been harder then. I don't know. I don't see myself going through this level of pain and rejection so easily next time. I really don't. I'm taking the meds. I use protection. It's been almost a decade since I've had it so I'm not worried about shedding or passing it on so easily. British studies confirm that the first 2 years are the most contagious and we're passed that. I'm just over this. I've never been in so much emotional pain in my life.

      Is this herpes? I can’t find any pics that match this exactly and my symptoms don’t really match. I don’t have really any of the typical herpes symptoms other than pictured, so I figured it could be friction as I have recently been having a lot of sex with a new partner. Way more than normal. Started having unprotected sex about 3 - 4 weeks ago. These symptoms only started about 3-4 days ago. Felt burning in some areas and only some very few tiny red areas/spots appeared. Almost shiny in appearance. Seems to settle very quickly. They were only present for a day or so. Also had some very mild irritation after I pee but not during. This spot has 2 small red lumps that are now dry around the outside. It’s like it’s been rubbed off and the skin is dry and shiny underneath. It doesn’t seem to be lesion. There was no puss or any leakage, nor was the skin ever red under them. They also got better within a day or so. I still have red spots around but they are very small and not bunched together and some general discomfort but I feel it’s because I’ve touched it so much! Stressing a bit!  my research tells me friction burn/blister , Fungal ,herpes a bit of it all! I have no idea! Please help! Thanks in advance.

      I’m going to force him to get tested ! Thanks for your help !

      @EssenceL25 there really isn't a question mark around the source, it's your latest partner. The median time from infection to an outbreak of lesions upon initial infection is 4 days.  The only thing that isn't certain is the type I suggest.
