I learned that I was exposed to HSV 2 by someone with whom I was involved for about a year. I ended the relationship immediately and was blood tested a few days after our last encounter. The results showed HSV1, but the number was not high enough to be positive for HSV2. I should note that at this time I began douching with undiluted hydrogen peroxide twice daily, which may have actually done some damage. About three weeks after our last encounter I discovered a single painful, itchy bump in the perineal area on the left side, with groin swelling on the left side about 1-2 days after this. I had the lesion culture tested when it was very new (one day). The results were negative. How long should I wait for a definitive result from a blood test?
