I am a 24 F H: 5’3, 130 lbs, medication (plan B (1 time), diflucan 2x), worried about GHSV2. Already had cold sores so not worried about OHSV1
03/02/2020 – Potential Exposure date with a late 30s M with an unknown HSV status.
03/03-05/2020 – General fatigue, coupled with light pink/white chunky discharge, no other symptoms or lesions, 03/06/2020 – took plan b just in case and had more than mild fatigue/cramping.
03/10/2020 – Ran a mild fever (99), swollen tonsils/lymph nodes, white spots on tonsils went to the doctor and got diagnosed with strep. 10 panel STD test done with iGg HSV 1 & 2. All other tests negative. Put on a 7 day treatment of amoxicillin iGg HSV1 : High 40’s / iGg HSV2: 0.18, negative
03/16-18?/2020: Unsure of when exactly the burning started but had pretty painful burning on valvular area and little no discharge, no lesions, also had prodrome like symptoms leg pain/muscle aches, no apparent tingling. Went to PP, STD test done (excluded herpes) test positive for yeast. Prescribed a 2x diflucan but only took one. Cleared up mostly after 3 days.
03/23/2020: Started my period all sensations subsided thought i was cured. Prodrome like symptoms but could be from my period.03/27-29/2020 – Episodic mild prodrome like symptoms + burning, no apparent lesions.
04/01/2020: Went to my actual gynecologist, STD/Yeast test (excluding herpes), negative on all.
Prodrome like symptoms still occuring episodically until 04/12/2020 when i shaved for the first time since the incident and got server burning sensation on my entire vulva area.
04/13/2020 – When i notice some inflamed hair foilces on the crevice of my labia majora, gone the next day. I had small red spots that showed up and disappeared in 24 hrs all week. None stayed longer than 12-24 hrs.
04/16/2020 – Went to gyno again with one of the lesions present. Ask specifically for a herpes iGg test for HSV 1&2. She swabbed the lesion but did not indicate PCR or culture test.iGg HS1: 46 / iGg HSV2:>0.91

04/17/2020 – Small paper cut type (1 mm) lesion appeared on right side labia on the butt cheek which contained a hair in the middle, could be from over examining the are. This cut did not hurt with urine or did it sting on its own. Generalized burning on vulva continued along with leg/thigh pain. This lesion has now healed in less than 48 hrs and did not scab. Looked like a normal scratch
The other lesions looked more like inflamed hair follicles/sweat glands. This one looked like a very clear scratch.
With those symptoms and those test results do you think this is herpes?
Also what is the likely hood of me being positive at 12+ weeks? Should i wait the full 16 weeks?

With those symptoms and your negative HSV 2 IgG, I don’t have any reason to think that you have HSV 2 at all. And 12 weeks is as good as it is going to get. Just nothing you told me here worries me about your having HSV 2.
