Is it possible to still have genital herpes even if I tested negative? Doctor tested what looked like pimple.

1 doctor agrees
In brief: Possible
Although the lesion which the doctor tested may not have been herpetic (or may have been missed), many women who have had genital herpes but do not currently have lesions, continue to shed virus in their vaginal secretions.
That is why obstetricians may suggest c-sections for women with this history.
