Hi Terri, I was re tested by herpeselect. Here are the results for both tests:
September 30 – 0.23 negative
November 25 – 0.26 negative
September 30 – 1.05 – equivocal
November 25 – 0.69 negative
My last sexual encounter of any kind was in late July. I have never had any lesions or sores or other symptoms. Should I consider everything negative? I have eczema and very sensitive skin. and have spent the last 2 months freaking out about every single skin irritation I have ever had.
Ok, I am going to call my gyno and request a follow up test next week with herpeselect. Why is it so difficult to get the western blot in NY? I am very upset that my doctor did not give me the numbers or even read through the ranges with me. I feel like I have to educate her on something that I was able to simply read without any medical background. What causes some people to fall into this “unknown range”? I hope that it comes back negative. I will post an update when I get the results back.
