You said: "no she would not have. where are you getting this info??? I swear you trolling every post I put out. I AM GOING THROUGH THIS right now this moment. My OB said "sure we can test you as well, but do not be surprised if it comes back negative on yours, as hsv has to be tested for in an appropriate time frame" her test could be wrong. a blood test only show if you have ever been EXPOSED to hsv and what strain, BUT if it is not active at the time it wont show up at all on the blood test... so maybe you, grace should really get it straight because you are really upsetting me with your false hopes"
WRONG!!!!!!!! Sorry lady Herpes doesn't work that way. Now yes the IgM testing which is outdated and not to be used for HSV testing (Your provider can review the CDC guidelines for 2010 on HSV testing). HSV testing using a HerpeSelect test (a type specific igg test) goes through and does report the persons having HSV. Exposure is not going to cause a positive test. Herpes doesn't work like that. Just because you talked to your doctor doesn't mean you know about herpes. Grace has been doing this a long longer. If your testing was an IgM test you may not test positive or you may. IgM cross reacts with many different things.
A post with a great talk about IgM testing (which is what you and your OB refer to I am almost 99% positive you had done) and it's many flaws. Also the post was written by a doctor. A doctor with many awards in the STD field and been in the STD field a long time.
Now as for testing is concerned if you test negative and than positive you have to look at the time line of how many tests were done and were they the proper testing. IgG or IgM if IgG then great and now how long? Most people will test positive by 3 months. A few minority take 6 months and some will never test positive on the IgG testing we have but may test positive on the Western Blot and a few don't test positive but will only know with a lesion culture.
Time for you to really ask questions and listen instead of trying to throw your 2 hr talk with your doctor as fact and law. I gurantee you I have been on these forums for almost a year now and have done far more studying on HSV and understanding this virus myself personally for a number of years. Every study I read comes from professionals in the field as well as researchers. All of them are published on the pubmed.gov site which helps make sure you are getting factual information from studies and not some website made by someone trying to scare someone.
I am sure if you settle down and start your own thread asking us questions you will find that we will tell you a lot of info and give you links to help you understand what you are going through. Until you ask us our qualifications and understand those of us that have been here a while and either gone through the fear of this virus or having it we can explain a lot of things to you. I am sure you could even explain to your OB shes wrong.
