Primary Outbreak
I had what i believe to be a primary outbreak while in a one year exclusive relationship.  the symptoms were full flu symptoms, full body aches - lasted three days.  Three blisters on genitals, burning when urinating - sores cleared up in 4/5 days,  I got a Captia test for Herpes 2 (dr did not test for 1), two weeks after this apparently primary outbreak.  test came back positive for H 2 - with a 2.40 score.  so, my questions are:

1. The dr said the high score meant I had this for at least 6 months, could this be true if there were no symptoms until two weeks before this test?

2. should i get re-tested?

3. Is it possible to be exposed and not have a primary outbreak until long after that exposure - most of the internet info says these aggressive primary 0utbreaks happens 2-14 days after exposure

it's most helpful when you just keep adding to your original post instead of making a new post each time. we ask this in our read before posting post on the forum. thank you for your future cooperation with this.

as we discussed in your original post, really nothing you can determine at this time. repeat your test when enough time has passed and if you still have a low positive, confirm it with a herpes WB.

Dear Grace - I got re-tested and am positive for H 2 - with a 4.2 level.  Here is my question, I believe now that this last summer i experienced the primary outbreak - as I remember there was what i thought a UTI along with the sickest I have been in my memory (chills, aches, muscles aching, - so bad I almost went to the ER.  This lasted for about one week.  

Here is the question - if this was indeed the primary outbreak could I have been infected days weeks, months or years before or does the primary outbreak usually happen within a particular set of time?

thank you
