Thanks, I have a clearer understanding now. At the Dr.’s office, I wasn’t even offered to take a blood test. I only thought,at that time,that the blood test just told whether u had it or not and since the bumps were present I knew it was gonna come back positive but hoping and praying it wasnt. Once getting the positive results from the doctor, i was so devastated and depressed, I didn’t do much but cry and I still do sometimes. It wasnt until I started doing more research that I found out I could have known if I was just infected by doing a blood test. That was probably 2-3 months after finding out.
1. Would that have been in the appropriate time frame to find out it was a new infection? And when is it too late to find out because the antibodies have developed?
Needless to say, I didn’t get the blood test, but I wish I would have tho. I was still going thru so much in my mind that I wasn’t thinking right. My biggest question is gonna always be where did this come from but I know I will never be 100% sure!!!
