I recently developed red spots and blistersaround my vagina and anus. My OBGYN said it looked like herpes. He did a culture and bloodwork. The bloodwork came back negative (.15), but the culture came back positive. I've read that on the first outbreak, which this would be mine since the bloodwork was negative, usually last 2-4 weeks. Mine was gone in 1 week using Valtrex 3 times a day. Also my boyfriend was tested and all his tests came back negative. Is it possible that I have been misdiagnosed? If so what else could it be?
We went to see his doctor today. Apparently his doctor only did the culture and all other STD bloodwork, but not the HSV2 bloodwork test. He had more blood drawn today..will take a few days before the results are back...if his blodwork comes back negative is it possible that I have had HSV2 for some time dormant and not known about it? I have never had anything like the outbreak I just had ever! Not a pimple or a rash or anything abnormal...not even a yeast infection?!?!
