Nothing you did or had done put you at risk for any STD or HIV.
The herpes IgM is a terribly unreliable test, and shouldn't have been done on you, as an adult. It's really only useful for newborns. Ignore it. Act like you didn't have it done. It's that unreliable. My own was negative when it should have been positive, and positive when it should have been negative.
No one, except the true evil people, wants to purposefully infect anyone with an STD, and assuming someone wants to infect you is irrational thinking.
The only way you'd get an STD is if you did one of the following:
Your mouth on someone's genitals, or someone's mouth on yours - think oral sex
Your genitals in contact with someone else's genitals, unclothed, with rubbing, grinding or penetration
Your genitals in contact with someone else's anus, or someone else's genitals in contact with your anus, unclothed, with rubbing, grinding or penetration
None of these things happened. If it were this easy to get an STD, every single person would have one.
Thanks for your reply. Yes, I have not done anything mentioned and also don't have gf ever.
After visiting massage parlor only, I got fever in two days and settled with tablet. Then due to std anxiety i started getting ars like symptoms each one on every week. And now currently suffering with hissing sound in one ear(tinnittus) and random tingling in neck area and chin area not sure severe depression may cause all of this. And I still cannot come out of this mental & physical I'll feeling since visit.
At 28th day(4th week), here is my hsv result from STD panel.(Elisa)
HSV 1 igg 0.72
HSV 2igg 0.87 where 0.9 is border line
While IgM HSV 1 0.38 & HSv2 0.17
At 55 th day,(8th week)
HSV 1 IGG 03 ru/ml
Hsv 2 IGG 2.10ru/ml
If value >= 22 consider positive
HSv1 igm 1.23 POS. cutoff => 1.10 pos
Hsv 2 igm 0.64
Above two tests done at two different labs.
Considering difference in igm between above lab tested, may be seroconverting eventually hsv 2 can cross broder line. What's your opinion on this?
Also do you have any idea whats difference in ru/ml and index method?
I understand, expert don't recommend igm but I got positive and can be linked with my symtoms (lymph tingling, ear Ringing). Not sure what to believe ND thinking to take WB test.
Do you think ear ringing can be caused by HSV? In your personal experience did anyone developed tinnitus due to hsv?
Forgot to mention other symptoms
Within same week, gum pain and random chin skin pain(inside) , now subsided
There is no STD that is going to give you weight loss, hair loss or high BP, or ear ringing.
The ru/ml depends on where you're located and what lab does the testing. The important thing is the ranges.
You aren't seroconverting for anything, at least from this encounter, because you had no risk. Your IgM is useless, and is a very low positive anyway. If it were reliable, I'd bet it's a false positive. Since it isn't, we're ignoring it.
You don't need to take a WB test for anything. You had no exposures.
If you take nothing else away from this, hear this:
You had NO STD or HIV risk.
You don't need testing.
The IgM is a waste of time and energy.
If you have high BP, follow up with your doctor.
Talk to your doctor about your anxiety. Your mental health is as important as your physical risk.
Again - you had no risk, and need no testing.
Thanks for detailed information on questions asked.
Lastly, for understanding purpose have below queries.
I read on some medical website that hsv1 can be possibly spread via sharing drinking water, utinsils (tea cup/glass) and towel /bed as well since hsv 1 can live/survive outside from a day to few weeks but hsv 2 cannot live outside. - do you have any opinion on this and found anyone infected this way from your experience?
