HELP!!! Two negative tests bust still having symptoms?
So earlier this year I posted about my symptoms and what I thought was possibly herpes.
Since then my partner was tested and came back positive for HSV1.
My first IgG test was only a few weeks after my symptoms started (early January), so I was really unsure about the validity. It came back negative. After this I was having recurrent symptoms (itching, pain) and also had a couple of extremely tiny what looked like paper cuts on the skin right where my vaginal lips meet. My doctor attributed these to a yeast infection. This is strange to me because I've never had a yeast infection in my life prior to all of this. Still, I wanted to take his advice. The symptoms seemed to disappear for a while with topical medication and Fluconazole, but kept coming back after a week or so. So I asked for a second test to be done, just to be sure. The second IgG was on February 27th, which my doctor assured me would be ample time for any antibodies to show up. Once again the results came back negative, but sure as clockwork before my period I get the symptoms again: itching and general creepy-crawly feeling. These went away during my period, and came right back afterward. I don't understand what is happening here. If this isn't herpes, then why is it mimicking the symptoms and why the hell wouldn't it go away? My doctor has since referred me to a gyno but I won't even be able to see them until April!
