I have been experiencing some genital blisters and ulcers every month starting since March of this year. I believe I was infected by my ex and this is a whole different topic of itself 😞 but I have done three viral culture exams and all three have come out negative. I believe the first two I was too late, meaning it was more than 48 hours after the ulcers and blisters have appeared. The third time it was a recurrent outbreak and the test result came back negative. This last time I also asked for a blood test and I got my results back today.
Usually my gyno calls me when there is an abnormal result, even when I have a yeast infection but this time I didn't receive a call (I went to another gyno because my primary gyno was out) and I just want to make sure that I am interpreting the test results correctly. I am going to call tomorrow and ask clear questions but wanting to hear from y'all as well. I have an index of >5.00 for both IgG HSV-1 & HSV-2 and IgM of 0.37.
If I am interpreting right I do have both HSV-1 & HSV-2?
Also, I appreciate any resources and or tips on how to keep moving forward with this new diagnosis. Thank you!
