Doubt

I had a risk exposure 60 days ago with a prostitute.I did igG and igM tests after 55 days from  the exposure.
My igg result was look like this

hsv 1 and 11 igG - non reactive

I think the result is combined and is this a correct test? I think this is not a type specific test.also dont have a index value.

IgM is look like this

hsv 1   -Negative
hsv 11 -Negative

You have not had any symptoms?

This being the case, combined with the negative testing is conclusive that you have not had an infection from the episode.

Although a combined test, it is valid in the negative.

Most men have that after being with a CSW!

You're fine in respect of herpes!

The time period of the test i did is ok or not??
I saw most of people advice to do the test after 12 weeks
Avatar universal
At 8 weeks, 90% of people have seroconverted if they were infected. The majority if not all of the 10% who have not seroconverted have experienced symptoms starting with lesions within a week of infection.

Hence the odds of you having herpes are negligible. A test at 12 weeks is conclusive but it will be negative for you.

Having a burning sensation in my penis skin.Saw a rash like thing in my penis for 1 hour and it went.what is your opinion regarding this?
Avatar universal
My opinion is that you are worrying needlessly. Herpes does not cause a rash for an hour!
Avatar universal
It happened twice after this exposure.can't it be a prodome or any other STD???
Avatar universal
I had this burning sensation on 50 th day after exposure.Still I have that sensation.now i am on 77 th day.today I saw that rash for one hour.it vanished after that.this is the second time I saw such a rash.can't it be a prodome or any other STD?
Avatar universal
No, you do not have herpes so this is not prodrome.

You mentioned protected sex so STDs are not particularly an issue. The timing indicates that the sex may not even be involved in your symptoms.

Follow up with your doctor for testing of other STDs, although you must have done this, right?

That's conclusive, you are negative for HSV! This is no real surprise given what you describe.

Sill having the burning sensation in penis,thighs and buttock.My 15 week test result is negative.Do you think this is because of hsv1 and it misses the test.
Avatar universal
No HSV does not cause the symptoms you describe.

Yes there are a lot of people experiencing the same symptoms as you, but essentially all of them do not have herpes.

My 11 week  IgG hsv 1 - 1.48 & hsv 2 - 2.53 (Less than 9 is Negative & greater than 11 is positive )

My 15 week IgG  hsv 1 - 6.23 & hsv 2 - 3.21 (Less than 9 is Negative)

Because of the uncommon Negative value of hsv 1 in 15 week, Do I need to retest? Now I am in 22 week.Still I have the burning sensation in my penis and boxer short area.

No, your HSV1 reading is a clear negative! All tests have a minimum that varies from test to test.
This sounds very stress related. You need to relax now.
