Negative blood tests...

Recommended Posts

Holy cow. Doctors office just called and all is negative on my IGG and all other std panels. When I asked if typing could be done by a swab, the nurse was acting like it was a surprise to be asked! I told her I knew it was a new case, as I had gone through the fever on the night I was at the drs office. She actually asked if I wanted a typing for the flu?!!


I'm so mad I could spit. I obviously have had an outbreak, no swabbing was done, and I didn't know any better to ask at the time. How can a physicians office (ob/gyn) be so clueless? Now what do I do?! My boyfriend will get his testing Saturday but remembers no oral or genital outbreaks before, so must be asymptomatic...or this is not herpes at all (yeah, right) and it's all a big mistake. Could the BV have caused a look alike rash that she mis-diagnosed?!


I guess we just wait now for his results, but I'm so angry with my drs office! I just want to beat them up for being so damned blasé about all of this! I was so prepped to deal with hearing what happens next. I'm a planner type and need order and this threw me for a loop, even though I knew it would be a possibility. I had imagined I had H1, since I've always had canker sores since a kid with braces.


I'm just having a difficult day and feeling sad and need to carp about it... Worst part of this is not wanting to talk about it with anyone!
