Hi, I posted a herpes only related question in the herpes forum because it didn't allow me to post here so I will make that question broader.
I had a sexual encounter earlier in August, protected vaginal sex (man to woman) and unprotected oral sex (only woman performing oral on me). Also deep kissing was involved. Regret experience. I got a full panel std done at 17 days after the episode. Everything negative - herpes hsv1&2, syphilis, HIV, hep a,b,c and chlamidyia. What should I retest and what is conclusive?
The IGG herpes test was negative for both hsv 1 and hsv 2. I understand it is not 100% accurate, with about 50% who are positive most likely showing a positive result at 6 weeks. How accurate is it at 17 days or a little more than 2 weeks? IGG for HSV1 <.1 and IGG for HSV2 <.1 I do intend to test at 6 weeks. For example, how many negatives turn into positives from the research data?
I'm also worried about HPV - I have what might be a wart that appeared on day 13. Docs don't think it is a wart but referred to derm. Do genital warts appear that quickly?
I should also add that at about 20 days, I developed a sore throat with no fever. Doc does not think it is bacterial and he thinks it is viral. Could this be the body putting up a fight against a possible HSV1 and/or HSV2 primary infection or HPV infection? No visible signs of either HSV1 or HSV2 on mouth/genital area. I also sense tingling in spine.
Very worried. Not able to sleep much.
