    Confused over test results

    My Dr. Told me Wednesday after looking at genital sore, that i had Herpes. He did a culture of the sore and he did the blood work. I just got the test results online and everything was negative, even the culture. I am so confused. I had all the classic symptoms of first outbreak - flu like symptoms, body aches and a few sores. I emailed my Dr. back, and I am waiting to hear. Does this mean I do not have Herpes? has anyone else had similar situation? one IGG test was .01 and the other .1
    any input would be appreciated.
    thank you,

    It could be a false negative. If the swab was not done where it collected any cells ; it could be false. Next time you have an outbreak or sore, go directly to your doctor and get it scraped immediately....willing to bet it comes back positive if you are that sure of what it appeared to be.
