Herpes concern

Roughly 18 months ago I had a sexual encounter with a woman who is HSV-2 positive. She was on suppressive medicine and we also used a condom, she was also not having any visible signs of an outbreak. Since that time I haven't had any visible outbreaks or lessons on my genital area. About 10 days after the encounter I began to feel a tingling in my genital area, this lasted for about 3 days with no signs of sores. I went to a doctor who assured me that it was all mental. My reoccurring problem is now a year and a half later I have tingling that comes and goes in the genital region. This last for about five days then subsides. It has only happened three times, the initial, then twice over the past month. My current girlfriend has also been tested about two months after we first slept together and she has negative test results for all STDs. I have been with Dr. and she told me no cause for test was needed since no visible signs occurred but I'm still worried.

Hi what your describing would not be herpes related. There are aborted outbreaks but are rare and not continuous like your describing. by the way you can have a herpes blood test that would be conclusive.

I scheduled one for next week. I am just worried about the accuracy and also how I can tell my girlfriend if I do indeed test positive. (I hope not!)

We been together for five months and I really thought there was no issues because;  never had an outbreak and have seen a doctor who told me I did not have herpes, also had a prior girl for 4 months and she had a clear slate too. Very confusing info
