I got tested because i saw a couple little bumps on my shaft a couple weeks after being with her, i popped them because at first i thought they were pimples or something of the sort, and a lil clear fluid came out, but before i popped them you could not tell there was fluid in them. [br>[br>There was no pain and it didnt look like anything i saw online, and i didnt have any other symptoms other than i was a lil sore under the neck but im not sure if it was before or during the time i saw the bumps. Nothing new has popped up sense! [br>[br>The sex was protected! [br>There were no visible bumps or lesions on her. [br>I havent been with sense and we did have a sexual relationship about 6 or 7 months before the last encounter and she said the guy she was with had also been tested and was negative. [br>[br>I got my results for my blood test today hsv-2 it was 0.67 negative! [br>The girl i had sex with got tested and her results for hsv-2 it was 0.42 negative! [br>Her results for hsv-1 it was 0.10 negative! [br>[br>the scale is 0.90 or less is Negative [br> 0.90 - 1.10 Equivocal [br> 1.10 or more Positive [br>[br>I got my test done at about 7 or 8 weeks after being with her. [br>keep in mind know about waiting 12 weeks or more im just looking to ease my mind. [br>[br>How accurate is this blood test (HERPESELECT-HSV-2 ELISA: 3640X) [br>[br>How sure can i be that my results wont change in a couple weeks? [br>[br>If this was herpes and i sense i popped the bumps, how soon will an outbreak happen from me spreading it to myself? [br>[br>If i am negative why arent my results .0?

If you had no sex since the time of your encounter with this gal then the odds are in your favor but I would still not have any sex witth anyone and get retested in another 2 months and repost the results here again.

The test you used as far as I know is one that is correct for Herpes People who do not have herpes still wil not test 0.00 I do not know why all I know is thatas long as yor results are below .0.90 you are negative.

If my partner and i both got tested at (week 7) at the same time for herpes 2 and we both came back negative but her score was lower than mine, do you think im less likely to show positive at week 11? [br>[br>Scores.... hers-0.42 [br>mine-0.67

It is unlikely that your 11 week test result will be any different.

ok, but do recurrences start like the first outbreak? in other words would there be just as many bumps? [br>[br>Would they always turn into blisters...burst, crust and scab over. Would the symptoms change? [br>[br>Can they start with the itching and tingling if they didnt start like that before?


Does the outbreak happen in the same exact spot every time with the lesion looking exactly the same?

Is this what you had?

"do recurrences start like the first outbreak? in other words would there be just as many bumps? [br>[br>Would they always turn into blisters...burst, crust and scab over. Would the symptoms change?"

If that is what you had this sounds very similar to Herpes. When the things broak was it a waterery type fluid?

This is ratehr odd if that is what you had. I would then recommend that you get re tested at the 3=4 month point from now.

Did she also have teh same type of issues down yonder? If so she should get retested at that the 3-4 month point.

Then post your numric test results in this same post at this time so we can keep track of your post and issues.

the bump i had never turns into a blister, it just looks like a bump or pimple and in less than 24 hours it would have a scab and it would leave, there is no pain, fluid or tingle or itch. but like i said i was test at 7 or 8 weeks and it was negative. the doctor seemed more than sure i didnt have it. i want to believe her because it looks as if she has hsv1 because she had an outbreak on her lip that really looked like herpes, she said to stop googling, lol and than if i have herpes and symptoms it would look like herpes. but the girl says she hasnt had any symptoms. there has been a another pattern that could be the cause, i have a pocket pussy, its a masterbation toy thats kinda torn up and i use lotion for lube and the last 2 time i saw this bump it would happen a couple days after i had been using the toy for a couple days.

What you describe does not sound like herpes and I thing your Doc is correct you do not have herrpes and if you had these low scores after 7=8 weeks it is not to likely that you have it. If you want to know for sure then get retested at 3-4 month level and I think you will find out aht you are negative.

Perhaps use a good lube when sexually active and or you are playing with toy and see that bumpd dos not show up after 24 hours and then disappears. That may help yyou let is know if teh bump comes back.

God Bless you

think wed the 26th will be week 12 or 13 so ill go than. Do you have any idea why some people take so long to develop antibodies? Because thats my main scare, i know symptom may not mean anything because there are multi reasons for most symptoms.

abe648 replied to jackfrost27's response:

I do not think that you have HSV as your numbers do not indicate that you are positive. If I recall that you reading was .40 or was it .42 any way that is very low and is not positive for HSV. What you are calling an ob is not anywhere near to a herpes type of outbreak. No tingling and only lasting 24 hours would not sound like a herpes ob. It sounds like something else and if you had that low a figure at 7-8 weeks then most likely you do not have it.

A typeical herpes ob lasts 3 days with treatment or 7 days from begining to end if you do not treat it. Your issue is only one day.

If you want get tested again now would be Ok and see what the HSV 1 & 2 levels are and I think you will come back negative. That will give you peace of mind. If the issue on your penis continues then I would set it up with your Doc's nurse to see you on short notice so that when this popd up again you again you can get in with in one day so that your Doc can look at this and figure out what it is but it does not sound like herpes from what you are describing.

jackfrost27 replied to abe648's response:
ok cool, so ur say that you think a recurring hsv out break would would be 7 days without treatmeant? The .42 was the females test results, Mine was .67, we both got tested at the same time around 7 or 8 weeks.

abe648 replied to jackfrost27's response:
Your tsst resilts are negative as well.


Your numbers at 8 weeks are not positive numbers and at 8 weeks if you had Herpes you should have been in the low positive figures by taat time.

What you describe as an ob is not what one would usually see when one has an ob. Yors only lasts 1 day and does not fill with a water type fluid and it does not busrt drain and the heal over a 3-7 day period. Your issue only last 1 day at the best from what you describe.

That is why I do not think you have Herpes. And the only way to be sure is get a type specific IgG blood test for HSV 1 & 2.

Post the numeric test results here so someone can confirm your status.

Go get tested as you say it is now 12-13 weeks amd then you will know where you stand.
