I think my doctor is stupid

In late September, my doctor told me I have herpes. She didn't give not 1 prescription for anything. She didn't even say what type of herpes it was so I don't know if it's HSV1, HSV2, or herpes zoster (shingles: according to my WebMD research). Shingles makes the most since to me since I had chickenpox when I was 19 and I've been having unprotected sex with the same guy for 10 years and he doesn't have herpes at all. I've too confused to think straight lately so I need advice.

Where are you having problems. Is it the genital area. If so how were you tested for herpes. Was it just a look see or did the Doc take a swab or did the doc do blood test.

Call your Coc's nurse and get them to tell you what you have and how you were diagnosed

Then come back here and tel us what they said.

your partner also needs to get a type specific Igg blood test for Hsv 1 & 2 to see what his results are. Ask him to get a copy of his test results and post them herre so we can help both of you to know what to do next.

Peole can have herpes and have no symptoms that they have herpes..
