Herpes Tested Negative At 7 Weeks
Why?: Why this test? If you hope for any kind of answer you must describe precisely whatever symptoms prompted the test. Note that if you have acute herpes for the first time the diagnosis cannot be made with a blood test because it will not turn pos for 2 or 3 weeks. Ask the Dr who ordered the test to explain what you have. ...Read more

Can you test negative for herpes but still have it? I tested positive for herpes, but my boyfriend of two years did not.

I got tested postive for herpes and my partner got tested negative when should he go get tested again. There any way that he can catch it.
Test during outbreak: Herpes is most commonly transmitted through sexual intercourse. The tests for herpes aren't perfect. They are most sensitive during an outbreak. If your partner isn't having an outbreak, the test may be negative, even though he is a carrier of the virus. If you have only ever had one sexual partner, that is probably where you caught it. If you have had more than one, its hard to know. ...Read more

Me and my boyfriend both got tested for herpes after sleeping with each other. His test came back positive and mine came back negative. How?
This is very common: When one person in a couple has genital herpes due to type 2 herpes simplex virus (HSV2), It's transmitted less than once for every 100 episodes of unproteced vaginal sex, maybe only 1 in 1, 000. Even lower for HSV1. So it's very common for one person to test positive (from a past relationship) and the other to be negative. Speak together with doctor about how to prevent future transmission. ...Read more

Herpes 1: Unlike herpes 2, herpes 1 is generally not considered an std. It is a common infection with about 70-90% of the world being positive by antibody testing. Herpes 1 can be acquired through casual contact. It can be transmitted sexually as well if someone with oral cold sores performs oral sex. ...Read more
I don't have herpes I've been tested 3 times and 2 of the times were in the last two months I am neg for herpes but have little white dots not pimple?
Dermatologic conditions are difficult when not seen.
I can say that many herpes tests are not very good. The antibody test, and growing the virus could miss a large percent of the people with the virus. Looking for the particular viral DNA or protein are much better tests, but still have to get the right time when the virus is popping out or the test is negative (and sore lasts longer than virus) ...Read more
Recieved oral sex. Tested for syph, Gonn, and Chla. All neg. Dr. said HIV is not a risk, and no testing for herpes without symptoms. Should I worry or no?
Receptive Oral: Your doctor is absolutely correct. There is no HIV risk. ZERO. Herpes is tested by blood. So, that one part of the story does not make much sense. But, 75% of Americans have oral herpes already and cannot get it again. So, receptive oral sex is often very unlikely to be a risk for herpes simplex. ...Read more
I went to the doctor to get tested for herpes, it came back negative. The doc said she doesn't believe the results were correct, what should I assume?
Diagnosing herpes: If your doctor is experienced with herpes and remains suspicious, you may have it despite negative test. The herpes tests aren't perfect and can miss it, especially a swab test for culture or DNA testing, if the sore is starting to heal. OTOH, even the top herpes experts often have trouble based only on examining an outbreak. Have a blood test to check for both HSV1 and HSV2. Good luck! ...Read more

If I had a negative herpes blood test at three weeks and seven weeks is it possible I still could have hsv-1?
Sure: If you just caught it after the last blood test, you would have herpes-1 now, but a negative last blood test. Herpes-1 is commonly found in people by the time they become adults. It is common enough that it is considered normal to have herpes-1 oral herpes. Usually, there is not a reason to repeated tests for herpes-1 unless a person is worried about catching it on his genitals via oral sex. ...Read more
What happens when genital herpes go untreated in a 7 year old child tested negative but have all the symptoms?
Nothing happens: A normal, healthy child who has a genital rash and tests negative for Herpes simplex will be rid of the rash soon. The doctor can help with some creams, if the rash doesn't go away quickly. If the child tests positive for herpes, nothing happens if the child is not treated. Herpes in normal people goes away without treatment. The doctor can help with treatment, only if herpes keeps coming back. ...Read more
Small white bump on bottom lip. No pain. It has been present for 2 weeks. Tested negative for herpes 7 months after last sexual contact.?
Not herpes: Herpes doesn't behave at all liks this. Sounds like a small cyst, pimple, etc. Herpes lesions never look the same for as long as 2 weeks. Within a few days it would change from red bump to blister to pimple to open sore to scab, and by now would probably be healed entirely. See a doctor if you remain concerned, but in the meantime you needn't be worried about herpes. ...Read more
