And my swab test came all normal, now I read some of the shedding could be in your Tract but my swab all came normal
And could my current vaginal bacterial infection interfere with the test
Hi, i would disregard these people and the test you took as we dont know what test they gave you. It may have been a combination test which is usless or if it was a igg type specific you may have a false positive. What i think happened is that you possibley have oral hsv1 from childhood which millions of people do and it was a combo test which cross reacts with both hsv1 and 2 or your hsv2 fell into the false positive range.
just get another test which is the IgG herpes select type specific and let us know or call them and get a copy of the test results and post it here.
Thank you so much for the quick respond. I tried to call them already and ask for the result and the lab tech just said it just says positive for hsv1 and 2.. I've been reading a lot of herpes and if I was infected I would know. I've never even had a cold sore in my life . Now I dated a guy who had cold sores for 4 years but we never kiss when he has it and I've never had it. And we broke up a year ago. I've been reading about western bolt test too should I ask for that test instead? I also learned that cdc is even against hsv testing unless there's a symptom or concerned. And the nurse who did my swab test even said I have a healthy vagina.
Yes the Western Blot is a good test but since you now have an issue you should retest to confirm.
I will thank you so much ! In your opinion what do you think? Could my past health history and my current infection interfere with the test. Like I said I've been so stressed and lost 5lbs the past 3 days and I don't feel or see anything flaring up that would make me think I really am infected. Other than losing appetite I don't have any other symptoms
Hi, the only thing that would affect test results is taking antivirals with a recent infection. It could delay a positive.
Okay thank you I've never taken any medicine till after my test
I'm praying it's a false positive
Hi I just got a copy of my result and it doesn't give me any numbers all it says it postive for antibodies ? I'm so confuse
Can you post the test results here?
They didn't give me any numbers all they said is they test for antibodies and they came up positive for both.. Which for the record I've been in so much stress and out of curiousity I did everything they said not to do to prevent a break out and I still have noooo symptoms I still don't feel sick or anything! If anything foreign enters your body your body will react right. I mean I feel it when I get flu shots I just can't accept this diagnosis specially it doesn't make sens. I've been researching and like you said I probably have so much of the hsv 1 that my hsv 2 test came up positive as well. Cause I remember when I was a kid I was covered in chicken pox I had it on my scalp in my ears in my mouth on my growing area on feet I mean every where I has some scars from it. Am I wrong for thinking adamantly that they misdiagnosed me? Why would I take drugs I don't need right ?
