Recently diagnosed, but not by my regular Dr. but an asociate. I was whipped in and out and prescribed Valtrex. After coming here and seeing all the differences in everyone's H patterns, I've come to realize I've probably had this for over a year. Been with the same guy for 9 years, always used condoms until I had my tubes tied a year ago and whammo...weird tingling etc. Thought I had a shaving cut that wouldn't go away, after 2 weeks I went in to see what the heck. Did a swab and tested +. After reading these posts, I don't even know if it's 1 or 2! Should I get a blood test for this? I've never had the dreaded "initial outbreak" I read of. Is that still to come?? What's the deal with antibodies?
Thanks for the great info you all provide.
