My gyno did not see anything that looked like herpes. If the western blot comes back positive I would assume I recently acquired bc I’ve never had the lip symptoms that I’ve been having before. My lips also burned and tingled at one point. I figure it would be irresponsible of me not to do the WB. I don’t understand why certain states dont allow it – makes no sense. Is it true that people don’t usually have a typical cold sore during their primary OB and they usually appear later?
