Last night I began having bad pain again, like in the beginning. Checked, and definitely a horrible yeast infection exists. Likely from the Flagyl, I presume. Called Dr., and got Diflucan for the third time in 8 weeks. Also, got the HSV results in. I am not sure if this is correct, but she said that both hsv 1 and 2 were negative as far as being in the active state. She did say that I have hsv-1 (value was 5+??? what does that mean) but that is was very dormant, "oral" hsv-1, and had likely had it since childhood. I do get ulcers on the inside of my mouth in times of severe stress and have for years and years, but never a fever blister. Wouldn't I have been tested for this and someone alerted me during my previous pregnancies? She said it was completely unrelated and that I should not worry b/c if it were genital hsv-1 then it would have shown up in the "active" blood test. Does any of this make sense. I asked if I should take Valtrex and she said, "Heavens No, you don't need that!" One test was igG and one IgM I think, but not sure which was which. The hsv-2 value was <.9.....still unsure as to what that all means. Once the current yeast clears she intends to refer me to a more specialized gyn for further testing.
Interesting. Surprising (and frustrating) that my Dr. doesn't tell me this, although there is no longer a lesion to culture. She did say that 8-9 weeks with yeast and BV could happen, but is def. not a herpes incident. I will let you know, since we are both curious, what the outcome with the specialist indicates and many thanks for your prompt and thorough responses.
