Thank you! I intend to request another IGG tomorrow and will let you know the results. Preliminary internet searches come up empty handed for a clinic in FL willing to administer the BioKit, but based on all your information here, I wouldn’t be satisfied until I have the WB anyway. Please keep me informed on how I can be a part of the study you intend to start in the coming weeks. Do I need to do anything further at this point to be considered?
When you say that FL is a state that does not allow shipment, does that mean that I am unable to even successfully obtain the WB kit from UW and have it processed by my own local physician? I contacted your clinic by phone and then UW earlier today. Both staff were extremely helpful, but I was bummed to learn you could not order the WB for me. UW was under the impression I could order from them, potentially have the blood drawn at Quest, then Quest would ship to a Quest near them, and eventually deliver to UW. To cover all my bases, I even asked UW about flying to their labs to be tested in person. As you guessed, my anxiety levels are extremely high as this diagnosis brings heartbreak of all kinds. I am on a federal insurance plan and your clinic is listed as an approved provider. If I were to fly to your clinic directly, would you be able to test me then? I feel a little over the top even considering a vacation to be tested for herpes, but I need the confirmation to find peace. April can’t come soon enough.
Finally, what are the odds he contracted hsv2 orally, is asymptomatic and transmitted it to me the same way? I’ve read getting HSV2 orally is rare, but possible. If it is a recent infection for him, combined with his HSV1 slowing down the growth of his hsv2 antibodies, realistically could I have obtained HSV2 orally also? I found out about his infidelity by calling her number from our phone records. She talked to me openly and told me her version of the events that took place that night. When I confronted him and did not reveal her details, his story matched hers for the most part. Is it even slightly possible he could have truly given me herpes by kissing another woman?
Your website and mission for your clinic is amazing. I’m so thankful for your dedication! Your site is the only thing giving me even a little hope right now that I could walk away negative. Thanks again!
