Herpes Question- Please comment
An_254876 posted:

I posted on this forum couple of times already and this will be my last post please bear with me...

I had protected sex but unprotected oral 9 months ago (no ejaculation). I went through severe anxiety thinking that I got HIV and herpes. I took a 8 panel test(HIV,Herpes,chalmydia,gonorrhea,syphillis,Hepb,hepc) last week after 8 months all of them were negative.

I got sick the next day after my encounter. After 2 weeks I got an ulcer (no pain) in my mouth filled with clear liquid (I never got this before) but only stayed for couple of hours. I got ulcers in my groin area after 4 months (may be hair follicle), stayed for a week but they didn't burst out.

I am constantly thinking that I got HIV and Herpes and gets sad and depressed. I suddenly get dizzy and tired everyday since my encounter 8 months ago. This has been happening since then. Am I feeling this because of anxiety?

I read in some posts that Herpes blood tests (IGG) are not accurate if there is no out break, is that true.

Can I trust my negative HSV 1/2 IgG, Type Spec (captia and herpesselect) blood test results?


Did you see anyone experiencing headaches and suddenly get tired and fatigue because of herpes? and is there a chance for the test to turn positive after 8 months.

Thank you for your help!

You do not have this virus. If you did, your test results done after 8 months would certainly have come back as "reactive" (i.e., positive), outbreak or not.

I suspect your headaches and fatigue are perhaps due to anxiety and/or depression over a disease that testing has clearly shown you do not have. Really. Please trust these results. They are accurate in terms of your status.
