I had a sexual encounter (oral sex with an unknown parter) in which I become very ill afterwards. I got a rash on the top of my glande 10 days post exposure. One doctor told me I should get tested for herpes but prescribed antifungal creams and a pill. I never got blisters but the whole tip of my penis became red and inflamed in some areas. No itching until applying atifungal treatment, no pain to the touch but certainly irritated. Went to another doctor for a second opinion and it was not the best. He said it was a yeast infection but due to a recent HIV infection. The test I have takes are as follows....
6 weeks post exposure Clearview Stat Pack HIV1/2 Negative
3 months post exposure Clearview Stat Pack HIV 1/2 Negative
Biokit HSV2 Elisa Negative
6 months 2 weeks HIV EIA (labcorp) Negative
Syphilis (RPR) Test W/Refl to Negative
Quantitative RPR and confirmatory
Treponema pallidu Antibodies Gonnorhea Negative
Herpes RNA PCR test on serum Negative
Main concern is herpes since I dont know how reliable is a biokit at three months and I now knoe the PCR on blood is useless. Also for the clamydia and gonnorhea tests I made pee about 45 minutes before giving the sample and the lab requirement says no peeing at least one hour before giving the sample. Would this affect the results? Should I get tested with an Igg Herpeselect? Do I need further testing for any std?
all herpes questions go on the herpes forum. you already have a post there you can add to if you have more questions.
all hiv testing questions belong on the hiv forum. follow up there if you have questions about your testing but since the risk of hiv from oral sex is almost nil, no reason to doubt your hiv testing at all.
I think we already discussed this quite a bit in the herpes forum. really no reason to keep thinking std's as a cause. continue to follow up with your doctor as needed if symptoms continue.
