Got told I had herpes and II was put on medication but results came back clear, what happened?

Herpes simplex: Don't know how you were tested, but most often this is a clinical diagnosis based upon the mode of presentation of the lesions. Treatment, unless begun immediately after onset is seldom effective in shortening the duration of symptoms. You don't say where the infection occurred, but am assuming genitally, in which case you might want to be tested for other stds. Hope you are well soon. ...Read more

I had possible HSV exposure and 9.5 weeks later was tested using HerpeSelect. The results came back negative. Is this an accurate result?

I had possible HSV exposure and 9.5 weeks later was tested using HerpeSelect. The results came back negative. Is this an accurate result?

Not quite conclusive: It can take 3-4 months for HSV antibody tests like HerpeSelect® to become positive. Most (around 90%) have positive results by 9 weeks, so your result is reassuring, but not conclusive. If you've had no symptoms of herpes, that's also reassuring and makes it very unlikely you were infected. Testing is not recommended after "possible" exposures, but since you started, test once more at 16 weeks. ...Read more

Having mild bleeding (brown blood) and small clots for nearly a month after gyno appointment for abnormal smear. Results came back fine for smear?

Having mild bleeding (brown blood) and small clots for nearly a month after gyno appointment for abnormal smear. Results came back fine for smear?

Vaginal bleeding: Any abnormal vaginal bleeding should be professionally evaluated. It's good your pap smear is normal, but most bleeding isn't caused by things that show up on smears. Hormonal issues (e.g. need a different contraceptive pill?) are a consideration. Also STDs like gonorrhea or chlamydia, if at risk (new partner, partner with other partners, etc). Return to the gyn or maybe your local NHS GUM clinic. ...Read more
