Negative blood and culture for Herpes Simplex, HIV
My time line: unprotected sex with 3 people in March, April, May, June. 1st outbreak 6/26-- very itchy white blisters on vulva minora and anus then bursted and bled. Culture only found candida albicans. Then, about 2 months later on 8/22 I had the same symptoms again-- Itchy and swollen vulva minora with one white fluid filled blister that popped and bled.
Results on 8/27
HIV1/2 EIA AB SCREEN-- Nonreactive (nonreactive).
HSV1G 0.09 HSV2GG .16
Herpes simplex Isolation/culture: 00/00/ null null
Questions: Did I wait long enough to take the tests to give me accurate results? 6 months max or 3 months min since first exposure to herpes simpex and HIV. Can negative results be misleading?
No one will give me a flat out answer. Is there a chance that I will get positive results for these viruses when I go back to do bloodwork in 4-16 weeks? Am I at the early perplex stage? Also why do I have values for HSV1G and HSV2GG... could these values go up?
