Mostly where I have seen this particularly is in populations whose origins are from India, have no idea why, but have seen this four times now. In my opinion, if your husband is negative and you have had only one other partner once, that risk of you being infected is incredibly low. How long ago was that encounter? Terri

1. Do you mean would it be unlikely for someone giving you oral sex to contract HSV 2 orally? We really don't have numbers on that. What we do know is that if someone has HSV 2 orally, which is not all that common, they shed virus infrequently, perhaps 1% of days (which means if you swabbed every day for 100 days, you would be giving off virus from th...

Oh dear, that happens sometimes. I know how frustrating that is. Let me ask you - what is your ethnic origin? Sometimes we see these higher false positives in certain populations. Terri

You can contract herpes from receiving oral sex, yes. But your diagnosis is completely inadequate. You don't really know if you have herpes and you don't know what type, which is very important.

If you didn't have pus cells in your urine, I don't think you had mycoplasma. If you had no oral contact with the CSW then your mouth is not a risk to your partner. Sixteen weeks provides the greatest certainty but in your case, with the risk from HSV 2 being so low, I think 12 will do. Terri

The lack of white cells in your urine suggests lack of infection. Yes, if you had herpetic urethritis, I would expect some white cells in your urine as lesions in the urethra would add white cells to the urine as urine passed over them on the way out of the body. I can't really think of other testing that would be helpful at this point. If you want ...

I actually think it might be less severe because you would know right away what it was and begin meds early, which is very helpful. A lot of other people would have no clue what was going on and wait a long time to get diagnosed. Terri
