I don’t think I have it, but I might get tested

Recommended Posts

About 16 years ago, I had a weird bump on my butt. I was pregnant at the time and I thought it was probably just a cystic zit due to all the horomones in my system. It was one bump, not a cluster. Had been married for 5 years, and never had any std. my gyno took a look and said it could be herpes, but didn’t do a blood test. He said if I had another “outbreak” we could talk antivirals. I left feeling pretty confused. And like I needed a new gyno. It cleared up fast and I never had another instance since. So, I blew it off as not herpes, but rather that cystic zit I suspected.
Now I’m divorced. I did a general std screening after divorce because I found out he cheated multiple times. The screening did not include HSV. But, I’m wondering if I should get one, just for my own piece of mind. 

What do you think?

More...I’m also wondering if it had been HSV all those years ago, but no other symptoms came, would antibodies even show up? I just don’t know what to do. Would be easy just to assume I don’t have it and move on, but for some reason it keeps worrying me, since I have a new partner. We use protection, btw.
