I had protected sex with a sex worker 3 and a half months ago. During the past 3 months I had weird pimples on my penis which were shown to multiple doctors who said it wasn't typical presentation of herpes. Pimples would go away within 2 days and would look like a whitehead pimple on top of hair glands. There was a white pus you could rub off the top of the pimple which would make the spot go away quicker. I now think these were fordyce spots. I just got my final blood test done at day 95 or 13 and a half weeks and results were negative for everything including herpes IGG. For hsv 1 the number was 0.15 and for hsv 2 was 0.21. The scale said <.90 negative. Also negative for: Hepatitis A, B, C, Chlamydia, gonorrhea, HIV 1 & 2, and Syphilis. Are these results conclusive for everything, especially herpes, or should I get another blood test at 6 months? Do the numbers 0.15 and 0.21 mean anything or is it just negative? thanks
Each herpes test has a minium number that varies between tests. There is little doubt your numbers are the minimum and there is a complete absence of antibodies in your blood. I believe all your tests are conclusive, you have none of those STIs.
