My goodness, you have been stuck on this for months now despite the assurances of Terri on the HSV Expert Forum and Grace on the HSV Community site that HSV is not a concern. Your exposure in April was condom protected and thus VERY, VERY low risk for HSV. Since then, despite no need to do so, you have been repeatedly tested with tests for HSV IgG antibody which are negative. Yet you continue to fixate on the possibility that you got herpes. This is faulty thinking and is not doing you any good. You need to move on. To continue to worry about HSV is distracting, may impair your interactions with others, and if something is really going on, keep you from having it evaluated.
The symptoms you describe are not suggestive of HSV. Genital itching of the sort you describe is more often than not is the result of increased vigilance leading to awareness of normal skin sensations that are typically overlooked when the area is not focused upon.
I hope this helps. You really need to put your concerns about HSV aside and move forward. EWH
