HSV IgM came back <0.91. Negative for chlamydia and gonorrhea. He’s distrustful of the IgM because I told him to be (he’s concerned he was infected asymptotically earlier and missed the window when the IgM antibodies were present). He got an appointment with a different provider on Monday so we’ll see if they think it’s something like prostatitis, which seems remarkably similar to me.
I guess if you answer any questions on this thread, I’d like to know your opinion about the probability he’ll have an asymptotic infection, having neither HSV 1 nor 2. It seems to me if he gets infected he will know. If you feel we should not trust the IgM or you feel the symptoms I’ve described warrant further concern for a potential HSV infection, that would be really important to know so we can keep going down that path. Thanks, Terri. Hope all is well.
