Here's the deal:
I had one new sexual partner last year, I went in for a routine gyno visit and she said that I am positive for low-risk HPV (or gw which I hate myself for already). She started me on Aldara which is terrible but somewhat bearable. I take frequent breaks between applications because I can get so sensitive from it. The last time I used it (about 3 weeks ago now) I had (what I thought) to be a terrible reaction to Aldara: I had a low grade fever, nausea, dizziness, and many open ulcers that formed "down there". I cried and dreaded every time I had to urinate because it hurt so badly. I called the doctor's office, nurse told me to not use Aldara and wait it out (DUH).
I went in last week while the last ulcer was healing and discussed this with the doctor as it was my normal 12-14 week follow after prescribing aldara. I had just started my period that morning (irregular bc I stopped birth control and wasn't expecting it for another week) so I didn't expect to be examined and just wanted to talk to her. I told her everything and she said that it sounded like it needed to be looked at.
She examined me, took a culture of the healing ulcer and blood tests and said that I most likely have herpes. I cried my eyes out in her office because I was so confused. Results showed both negative IgG for HSV 1-2 and positive IgM. Culture was negative. Nurse that I talked to said results were ultimately negative. The doctor called two days after I talked to the nurse and she stated, and I quote, "You were infected in last 2-3 months". I will be completely honest and say that I have not had sex or any other form of sexual contact besides kissing for 5, going on 6 months now, and I am in a monogamous long term relationship, bc of the HPV diagnosis. I don't understand how this could have happened...the timing doesn't seem right...and I am completely devastated.
Does anyone have an opinion, can anyone suggest what I should do next?
