1. I emailed you directly about this after my results but I took the WB 9.5 weeks after the encounter that prompted to get test you stated it was enough time as all partners were negative on IGG. Is it possible 2.5 weeks could of given me a false WB? Should I retake it?
The only reason I would think it wasn’t enough time was if one of the previous partners told you they tested negative but it wasn’t true OR they had the wrong testing done.
2. I’ve been using valtrex off and on for cold sores, do I need to wait 12 weeks to get an accurate result if I retake
I don’t believe that you need to retake it AND intermittent dosing with Valtrex is not enough to through off your results unless you are taking really significant amounts for extended periods of time
3. If this was a new acquired infection and that’s the reason it didn’t show up on my WB, I continued to have unprotected sex with my partner (same partner I’veouitted to him, then you could have given it to him but you are saying you think you got it from him so none of this really makes sense to me?
4. My main symptom is a skin nerve burning feeling like if my skin is on fire. It includes my entire pelvic area and hips, back, thighs, sides of knees and ankles. It’s constant. My neurologist diagnosed me with fibromyalgia. However my concern is that it affects my genital area. Have you seen symptoms like this with HSV2 without an actual outbreak of lesions or sores?
I don’t believe so, no.
5. The left side of my labia is the area that feels the most pain and irritation however it mostly burns on it’s on or when clothes touch it. Never when I’m peeing or anything so I don’t think there’s actual irritation there. My OB swabbed the area for me twice and both times it was negative for PCR HSV1/HSV2. If I was experiencing symptoms like the burning and nerve pain, is it safe to say the swab could have picked it up as symptoms mean shedding?
Yes, the swab can pick up virus if it’s there even if there is no sore there.
So you have a negative western blot, negative swab tests, your partner who you think you got it form tests negative, I think you have a lot of evidence that you are not infected with HSV 2.
If you want to take another blot, you sure can but just thinking you have lots of evidence that you aren’t infected.
