Also adding it goes without saying I feel guilt about that 1 exposure. I never have casual sex and it was a huge mistake in my life. Now that I have a baby and family I am punishing myself for my past by having all this anxiety. I just need your expert opinion to help me move on… also… adding to the SEPT cut description. They were gone in about a week or so- I was travelling then and recall them going away quickly. Also none of my cuts blistered itched or burned or caused discomfort that I recall.
Thanks again!!!March 23, 2023 at 6:33 pm in reply to: Past exposure assessment question #80874
Just adding that I paid for another question + 3 f/up to be sure I am covered here.
Thank you !March 23, 2023 at 6:28 pm in reply to: Past exposure assessment question #80873
Doc says I don’t have hsv 2- “I’d know” he says and does not see need to test unless I have something else to swab. Which I plan to do.
* I did have a random red dot swabbed recently when my health anxiety started surfacing which came back negative for HSV*
Q: Based on what I’ve described do you think I should test? I know that people can be asymptomatic carriers and all- doc says most have symptoms throughout a given year and the fact I’ve been pregnant gone through a traumatic birth with no OB indicates I don’t have it. He’s been my doc for 22 years and I am pretty diligent about going when things are concerning and my annuals etc.
Q: does protected sex with male of unknown status and unknown OB really protect female at 96%? it was 1 time.
My anxiety can’t take a blood test so I really prefer not to at this time given false positives (he also dissuaded me from testing via blood)
My health anxiety is spiraling right now and I am seeking help but I need to reconcile the past and move on.
I do think writing to you and letting this out will help me do so.
What’s your risk assesment and do you think I should blood test or just move on?

Thank you Terri. I went to her pediatrician for something unrelated today and ped said it could be transferred that way. So just checking that your answer stands firm even if my arm was still wet with saliva?
Thank you. Also, I have another question about an unrelated scenario. Should I continue here or post a new thread? I will pay of course. ThxMarch 21, 2023 at 7:00 am in reply to: Child transmission help #80826
