Hi there - Oh I'm sorry you are so upset, but please just give your doctor a call. This could be so many things from irritation from a yeast infection you don't even know you have to hormonal (and the hormones you are on may be making it worse) to a pinched nerve (again, you may not know you have one) to a whole host of TEMPORARY, TREATABLE thin...

Hi there - Your sero-negative tests in between this suggests that you have a new infection. You mention a third partner in March, and a negative test in April. It's possible that at that time, you wouldn't have created enough antibodies by then to test, especially if the encounter happened in say, the third week of March, and you tested in the...

Hi there - Vance asked me to help here, and I'm happy to. My first question is why are you testing for STDs yearly if you are in a monogamous relationship? I don't ask that to be mean, but wondering if there is a reason you think you should test? Are you pregnant? Pregnancy can cause false positives. While there are some tropical cond...

Hi there - With the confirmatory (TPHA) test being negative, and the VDRL giving such a low positive, this leads to the VDRL being a false positive, or an old infection. Do you know/remember ever having syphilis before this? If you have, the antibodies may remain positive for life, but they will be really low like yours are. You can opt to get ...

Hi there - I have some questions about this treatment, but first, what prompted you to test for syphilis? Did you have a sore, was it routine, suggested by your doctor, exposure to someone who had it...? I ask because I wonder if you had an old infection that would need a specified course of treatment over a few weeks, and not just one time. There ar...

Hi there - Chitchatnine told me about this post, and I wanted to respond. I just went through some testing for bowel issues, and Crohn's was a possibility. I was diagnosed with IBS, though. Has your doc done any blood work? I understand that there are some blood test results on a CMP test that could indicate Crohn's. I'd also ask f...

Hi there - Someone asked me to check this out, and I agree that there is no cure for HIV. An undetectable viral load doesn't mean you don't have HIV, and you can still transmit it if you have unprotected vaginal or anal sex, or share needles for drug use. If there are questions about your HIV status, then make sure to get the confirmatory te...

Hi there - 1:1 sounds like an old infection, or a false positive. If it was new, it would be up there like 1:416 or 1:832 or some other high number. How long after the exposure did you get the spot, and how long after did you test? It takes at least a couple of weeks for a symptom to appear, and the average is 21 days. It also takes a few weeks to...
Sep 23, 2011 in the Herpes Community - 26
Hi there - I read through this and feel for you, I really do. I've been in this kind of life-draining relationship, and it's awful. Suing someone for an STD is tricky. You have to prove, via medical results usually, that he knew he had it. With herpes, it's even harder, since it's not usually included in regular STD testing. ...

It could be anything from a yeast infection you all are sharing, to something else like an STD, though your histories don't make that likely, Don't panic, and you are doing the right thing by getting tested. You both should be. Jess
