HerpeSelect results...are they accurate?

I was tested at 15 weeks and 5 days past exposure. I tested using the HerpeSelect test and tested NEGATIVE for both HSV1/HSV2. Can I trust these results? I also got a swab test which was negative. I had dryness on my labia and it led to some cuts. I found out I had a yeast infection and BV.

I have a bump sort of near my urethra that is underneath the skin. It has a hair growing out of it. There's another red bump on one of my labia but I shaved the day before yesterday...so maybe it was that?

So can I pretty much rule out herpes? Thank you!

I also wore underwear that I'm not sure if I washed before wearing them (they are mine) is it possible that I have transmitted something to myself?
