| | My antibody level is just above normal
Dear community, on July 6th I decided to have an adventure with a sex worker and during the act the condom broke, I believe I noticed it about 30 seconds later but I really cannot know. I asked her about her health status and she said she felt good and never had any problems, though her last test was 2 years ago. Right after that I started to freak out and think that I have caught something so on the 10th day after the sexual intercourse I got a STD panel test and on the 17th day I got a HIV DNA (pcr) test.
The STD panel showed that I was negative for HIV (which just shows me I had not been infected from my previous sex activities), Syphilis, and Chlamydia, but it came up positive for Herpes 1 and 2 for my surprise because I never had any reactions or symptoms that could make me think I had such diseases. No need to say it upset me so much because 95% of my sexual encounters I wore protection, and the ones I did not was with people that had certain time with. Now I am feeling like I am dirty inside and that any time I will have a breakout. In addition to that I am still waiting on the HIV DNA test results (very anxious).
Please I need some words of wisdom: My Igg antibodies against HSV 1 were 1.5 and HSV 2 were 1.2 (normal 1.1 or below). Based on what I read, I could be considered an inconclusive case or a low positive. Can someone tell me something about this particular case, like: 1- What am I infected or potentially infected but need a confirmation? 2- Can I know I caught these viruses from that night on July 6th? 3- If I show no symptoms (blisters) can I still infect someone?
PS: All those questions I asked my health provider (a NP) her answers: 1- You are infected, 2- Is hard to say, 3- Yes...However, I decided to tell what happened to the last girl I had sex after July 6th (used protection but the oral part not) and she looked for a doctor and the doctor asked her if she had any symptoms or if I presented any symptom, which was know for both cases so he said that my blood test does not really say a lot bc Ab against HSV almost 50 to 80% of population have and that the only way to tell is if he gets a sample of the blisters, moreover that if the region was clean, I probably did not infect her.
Now after her visit to a doctor I really got confused...Can someone help me clarify things?
