I’ve been having like a tingling for weeks as well as discomfort peeing and the opening of my urethra kinda looks inflamed idk.. I keep getting told my numbers are low and it’s a good sign that they are going down I just don’t know what it could be if this is possibly a false positive. I also mentioned that my ex girlfriend was having vaginal burning and itching for awhile but she recently tested negative but idk if she ended up testing too early? We both tested at different times.
When I had sex with the previous person I got tested around 3 weeks or 3 and a half weeks post sexual encounter and me and my ex didn’t have sex again til make a week and a half after I had sex with the previous person so she got tested 3 and a half weeks after me and her had sex and tested negative while I keep having an IGG number.. how is it possible she tested negative while I keep having a low positive?
Is there anything in this that is concerning? The tingling for weeks? The irritation of my penis hole like slight red ness , the discomfort peeing?
I haven’t noticed any break outs I’ve been checking everyday for blisters and sores. I don’t know what could be influencing these numbers or making me feel like this if it is t HSV since I just had a full panel done and the only thing that came up twice was a low positive for HSV 2 but like I said the second time my numbers were lower.
Hi Terry, I did not realize I put so many replies I just paid $75more
I hope you can answer my previous questions for me and give me some clarity. Also a update I did a follow up IgG and the result was as follows
HSV 1- <0.91
Hsv 2- 1.25
my girlfriend got tested last week and she tested negative on both today.. what does this mean? I’m still waiting to receive my PCR that should be coming this week. She tested negative while having symptoms of vaginal itching, burning, irritation and diarrhea. My only symptom has been slight tingling. We both have not experienced any break outs.
Also, I can’t confirm the results of the other partner who told me she was clean because she was a CSW, but we used protection the whole time.
I forgot to add , the tingling is kinda felt at the head of my penis but there isn’t any pain or pain when I urinate and I haven’t noticed any discharge at all and a few days ago I had itching in my restocked region for about a day or two. I ready that tingling doesn’t last long if infected because it is usually followed by lesions or blisters which I don’t have on my penis or pubic area that I’ve noticed, I’m sorry for all the questions I’m just worried. The test results I got from labcorp I won’t be able to see until Monday I’m hoping to get the other results today, but the PCR result I won’t have til around Thursday or Friday. I’m nervous to see what my index is on this new IGg test today
One more thing Terry,
I’ve also been having tingling on and off for the last few days.. I feel like I may be positive idk I can’t settle my nerves on this.. I’d like to know what you think about everything I’ve said.
Also, the doctor had me do a PCR today because she said the previous doctor didn’t order a confirmatory test so she said that’s what the PCR is. Is a PCR the same as the western Blot? She said she got my results but the clinic I had the test done at doesn’t show an index value unless I do it directly at lab corp so she said all it shows is that I was exposed but it doesn’t show I was infected “it” being the IGg test she said just shows exposure but not an infection.
Let me be more clear, I tested negative in March then about 4 and a half weeks ago on 6/21 or 6/22 of this year I had protected sex with a woman I didn’t know well after we had sex I asked her if she had been tested and she said she got tested for STDs 3 months prior and came back clean I’m unsure if it was a full panel. I didn’t notice any sores or blisters on her mouth or breasts or vagina. I did suck her breasts and I have been good until recently. Idk if it’s tingling or just irritation from lotion or baby oil or my shower soap. I have no sores or blisters or bumps on my groin or penis. My results on the 19th were as follows
HSV 1: <0.91
HSV 2: 1.25
I got tested again last Wednesday the 19th and again the 21st and am expecting tbh use results either today or tomorrow. My other partner tested negative for STDs including HSV I believe. So my infection possibility is really low as well as my current result. I’m wondering if this is a strong false positive or do you think this is a true positive result from what I’ve said? I’m going to test again a week before I do the western blot. I’m freaking out badly I haven’t been able to focus on anything else besides this.
My partner doesn’t have HSV but I’m not sure if the other but she assured me she was clean and we used a condom the whole time ?
Also I was taking medication for a possible STI infection like gonorrhea and Chlamydia which I didn’t end up needing but I took all the antibiotics, would this have an influence on the result? I found it weird that there was a negative on HSV 1 but a very low positive on HSV 2
How long should I wait to get the blot done? And how often is it that you can get HSV 2 even if I used a condom?
I should be getting my second results tomorrow I took them about a week apart from each other.
Hi Terry, I really need your help
Also, I am negative for HSV 1 with a <0.91 index awaiting on my HSV 2 redraw results. Still no bumps or lesions or symptoms of any kind, I keep checking my genitals everyday to see if I see anything.
I have no symptoms and like I said recently tested negative for everything in march , I had protected and with someone about 2 weeks ago. I’m a male, 27, and I only have unprotected sex with one person since last April or May and since then have only had sex with two different ppl protected with oral and vaginal. My partner recently had Covid and a UTI and a yeast infection. I guess my questions are
Is this a false positive?
Should I get a supplemental test?
Should I be worried?
