Hi Terri, thanks so much for your response.
One of the women had done HSV testing recently, the others all went and got tested after I let them know that I was experiencing what I thought was a HSV breakout, and they all came back negative. But I haven’t seen a picture of their test results so I guess it’s possible I’m not being told the truth by someone!
Just to follow up with my first question, do you think the severity of my illness plus the blisters indicates a first outbreak, and (if it is HSV), it’s likely I was infected sometime before in the month leading up to my OB? Basically trying to figure out if I should get in contact with partners from more than a month before.
