I Was Sure I Had Herpes But Now She Tests Me By Swabbing And Its Negative I Dont Want To Get My Hopes

When one woman decided to get tested, she realized that a diagnosis is more complicated than she thought. Are you sure it’s a yeast infection? Yeah but you know they don’t usually test for herpes right? The swab turned out to be positive, and meds quickly cleared up my itchy symptoms. As she has told me many a time, If they really like you, it won’t matter. However, ive been tested now by a blood test and told i am negative. Let me get this straight – you had a positive swab, but negative blood test results. I need to be sure i don’t have it and he does or we both have it before i decide what’s right for me. I hope i do not sound selfish but im so young to change my life at this age. As many people with herpes don’t know they have it, they are unknowingly passing it along and that is why it is so common. A swab test can come back negative if the lesion is healed, and no longer shedding the virus; even though you still have it. I also just got diagnosed with it, not sure if its HSV-1 OR HSV-2, mine is genital, nothing above the belt so far, deffinitly stressed about it but before i knew anyting about it and before i knew it was herpes i was picking at the sores in the genitals, and now i believe i have it on my right middle finger, its swollen and hurtsno open sores, but im scared to touch my face incase it is on my finger. I really like hershe is like my dream girl but just informed me she has herpes type 1.

I got my blood work and she said it came back positive for the anitbodies. She had done some more blood work and said my hereps anti bodies came up negative and she belived i never had herpes at all. But if it’s the Gardasil, I do not know if there will be more side effects. I was so aggravated at this point and asked her to check again and she Apologizes to me saying ok yea you were negative but i’m sure you have it now. She took a cotton swab and wiped the rash and sent it to a lab for confirmation. I still didn’t think i had herpes because my partner TESTED negative for herpes and all other stds. It’s like if you have any kind of rash anywhere near your mouth or crotch, it’s, Herpes! Acyclovir! NEXT! TenseBulla2 10 Replies. All i can say is i would be devistated to find out i actually had it. but you give me hope when im in the same boat as you. It is estimated that 1 out of 6 people have genital herpes. I had a outbreak in my vaginal area but got tested for herpes came back negative is it possible I had it before with no outbreaks or did my boyfriend now cold sore cause it Reply. If you don’t want to spread oral herpes to your genitals then you need to refrain from oral sex without protection of some sort. We did tests, she gave me the news straight up with no emotion or sympathy whatsoever, even when I burst out crying. We have to have hope!

Herpes Misdiagnosis. What Next?

Recently she informed me that she has herpes and has known this prior to our relationship of a year. I mean it is his life, but the lady is trying to get pregnant again and I thought it was a good idea for them to know. I had a lesion that my doctor took a swab of and am waiting the results. It seems that over the years I have gotten more depressed about this, I cry all the time and have given up hope, I feel like I am all alone. I have gone for tests and await results, but given my worry and this helpful forum and all that I have read on it, I would really appreciate your thoughts on this. To me it sounds like herpes but saying that there are a million other things it could be its just odd that it happened after you slept with someone. My partner has never had an outbreak either we have been together nearly 5 years and didnt have sex 3 months before i had an outbreak theres so many things that can trigger an outbreak but i was told that if someone has had coldsores they will already have antibodies against herpes virus this is what has happened to my boyfriend he used to suffer really bad with them when he was younger they also said that i most likely caught herpes from him but i got type 2 instead its possible that he now has type 2 aswell but may never have an outbreak due to already having antibodies x. As far as I can tell this is the only way to be sure you have or do not have herpes – the problem is that your body takes time to build up antibodies against the virus and so testing within 3 months of contracting the disease can give false negatives – so it is best to test again after 3 months more, if given a negative test and you think you may have it. The Genital Herpes: Intimate Conversations blog has now been retired. PLEASE, if you’ve been diagnosed with herpes by a blood antibody test, get a copy of your results, and make sure they are IgG results, not IgM results. Their first question is, Has my partner been cheating on me? There are many possibilities, and you may need help sorting out the combinations and permutations of antibody and swab testing, but I hope this helps a little.

The person who gave it to you may never have had an outbreak in their lives. You can have the disease for years, and still test negative. And remember, condoms and dental dams help stop the spread for sure, but they are NOT 100 effective. So I put this article up here in hopes that some of you may commiserate, and that more folks will talk openly, to remove the stigma attached to this disease. I continued to get bumps around my mouth but I wasn’t sure if they were cold sores or pimples, although they weren’t nearly as bad as the May 2010 ones. Sometimes it feels like a certain spot is hurting but when I look in that spot I dont have any lesions. I had a positive sore culture 8 months ago, and now a negative blood test. Assistant didn’t really give too many details, she is just ready to set me up with a consultation for treatment, despite me asking for a re-test. The nurse called to tell me that my tests show that I am at a level 6 and a 6 and below means not pregnant. Has anyone tested 6 and later found that they were pregnant? The negative HSV 2 means that you do not have genital herpes. ie. you will not suffer from this physically and will not have recurrent attacks. I know i shouldn’t get my hopes too high up. I hope he won’t mind, but I’m going to borrow his idea. You don’t get it from touching doorknobs or sharing blue jeans or toilet seatsunless, of course, you’re having sex on a toilet seat, but that’s for a whole different book. If your partner doesn’t have herpes (and he or she would need a blood test to know for sure) , he or she will be vulnerable to getting herpes from you. And the swab tests that we have now are up to four times more sensitive than the older culture-style swab tests.

What No One Ever Tells You About Genital Herpes: My Personal Experience

I have read many times that there are posters here who have had negative Blood test results, but a positive swab. It will surely help those of us with HSV symptoms and negative HSV blood tests who do not have any outbreak to get a swab done. All of my IGG tests up to 8. 5 months have been negative (in the 0. 4-0. 69 range). I’m not 100 sure if I have anything but I feel like I do. If I tell them now, at 13 weeks and they get tested, is that the best course of action given I’ve been negative at 11? Or should I wait the full 16 weeks? How do I tell them that I suspect this but not sure? I had read up quite a bit on herpes, and so I finally said, So I have genital herpes? It was exactly a week from that date that I found my symptoms unbearable and went to the doctor who did swabs put me on a whole cocktail of antibiotics and confirmed I have HSV 1. My husband now acts like it’s nothing to him (being annoyed with me) since he doesn’t get the outbreaks like I do. She read the tests and was annoyed that it said HSV but that they did not check whether it was 1 or 2, cause lets be honest that matters. If you get a Herpes Lab Culture and it comes out negative, you may still have genital herpes. But medicine has made great strides, and since 1999, there are several NEW IgG blood tests now available that DO very accurately distinguish between HSV-1 and HSV-2 and are 97-100 ACCURATE, if taken no earlier than 12-16 weeks after your possible exposure to the virus. But then just yesterday I had a same burning and itching on my lips. Please bear with me while I explain my REALLY long. Now, before you get your hopes up, just know that there have been other attempts at a vaccine or cure for herpes and they have not been successful. Two of my friends know and they don’t see me differently at all but whenever I talk about how cute a guy is they just kinda look at me weird they don’t realize that I notice but I just let it go. Proceeded to get tested all the time and doubting the negative HIV tests because of my herpes diagnosis. They are swabs, actually. What about if I want to have a kid and she already has GH? It is estimated that somewhere up to 80 of people have HSV-1 antibodies. My Gyn said its possible that i could have but she didnt seem certain enough for me to trust it. Sure I have hsv1 on my genitals due to sex. can she give me something for the discharge? thank you for your time. Better test is the Swab, but you dont have outbreaks so you have to rely on the blood test. But reading everyone stories I am sure it is Herpes now. I had my girlfriend go get tested at her GP and she came back negative for everything. She surprisingly admitted she had Herpes for a year but was on Meds to suppress it. I have tested so many times up until now its crazy. 2 mouth swabs and once finger pricked, All negative. My dad just says You’re fine you don’t need to test. Myth 5: I will be able to tell whether my partner has a STD. We don’t want to scare you, but if you want to be sure that you are both STD free, getting tested is the only way to know for sure. I just went to the lady doctor and she told me that I had chlamydia. Lots of times, while they’re doing a pap, they will get a swab so they can test you for STD’s, but may not with each pap smear, I believe it depends on the practitioner. For the last few days I have had a strange feeling inside my mouth, almost as though I had bitten my tongue. Doc said she was testing me for herpes off all kinds, celiac disease, vitamin deficiency & so on. Hope EVERYONE ends up with their mouth sores cured (because I truly feel your pain! ) ! Jesse 2 May 11 I’m really confused as well! I have some sores on the roof of my mouth that I thought were mouth ulcers but didn’t seem to go away so after a week I went to the doctors who took one look at me (no swabs) and told me it was herpes. I developed a sore on on my lip 5 days ago now. it felt like a mouth ulcer but i’ve never had one in this particular place before. I tested negative for everything- except Herpes 2 (HSV-2) (I had the blood test, not a swab test, and I’ve never had anything remotely approaching symptoms. What can I do to find out more or get a better test? Just to be clear: my doctor said I had antibodies in my blood for HSV-2, but I’ve seen some articles online saying that Zoster can be confused for Herpes 2 and I would really, REALLY like to rule out any alternative possibilities. Still, I hope your test was a false positive. I would LOVE to not have it but I don’t want to get my hopes up when everything physically is saying I do, some lesions on my cervix. Doc wanted to put me on Valtrex before I had blood tests. I’m not sure if it’s just that we aren’t aware or that it doesn’t occur often. Your doctor should have done a culture (swab) of the sores that she saw on your cervix. Checking it out now.
