Too soon to test

I have recently become sexually active with an ex(7-6-13) who claims to be STI free(herpes included) July 28th we had repeated sex, one time unprotected. A couple days later I noticed there was an unusual discharge, so I made an appt with gyno and had a pap on August 5th. A couple days prior I started itching on my buttocks  with some power back tingling(cooling sensation and pulsations to be specific) My gyno just advised me that I have BV and prescribed antibiotic and advised that the Chlamydia and gonorrhea were negative. She doesn't think herpes is an issue, but in doing research I've found that BV and back pain/tingling with no visible sores can indicate indicates mild herpes outbreak. Since my dr. Visit the back pain, tingling and sensations have persisted and seem to be getting worse and also the sensations are noticeable in both my upper & lower back and hips. I still have not had an obvious visible on, but I know it can take up to 3 weeks for visible sores to appear. I am 13 days post exposure and am not confident in a blood test to date, should I ask my partner to get tested to rule out hsv, as my status for both hsv1 & 2 were negative back in October 2012 and I've had no sexual encounters until recent?

Hi, well thats a good point to have your b/f test now instead of you waiting 3 months with anxiety.  If you do develop any sores make sure you have them cultured within 48 hours. These are the best tests for showing positive.
