about 5 months ago an had an unprotected oral sex with a girl. then 3 months later i noticed red rash on my foreskin. so i went to the doctor, he did a swap test on me, he said i was negative for herpes. but i was not persuade by his answer so i waited another month to do the test above. so how can i find out if i have oral or genital? what the chance that the test results above are inaccurate? i do have a girl friend now. she went tested for herpes at PPH about a month ago is she is negative. how long should she wait to do it again. if in fact that i have hsv 1. how can i find out when did i got it and how to prevent from contract to other people. please advice, thank you for your reply.
how do i for sure i whether i have hsv1 1 orally or genital or both ?
the herpes culture test on me genital was negative. i went back the doc trying to find answers, but it was not use. please advice, thanks again for your reply.
the rash looked just like herpes. it was itching/burn and has discharge on it. but it went away in about 6 days. by reading your reply, i guess there isn't a sure answer or test that i can do to determine whether my hsv1 is oral or genital or both. is that correct. please help. also is there away to tell when did i contract with this virus or atleast the time frame. thanks Grace.
