My ex girlfriend recently told me she developed a "bump" in her perennial region. Now being a future med student, I know a fairly good bit of info about hsv. I asked her to explain the bump. She said it was a single bump. Kind of painful, which I think may just be from it's location. Bc a single bump, along with other details do not characterize herpes 2 nor 1. Also, she nor I have ever shown any type of symptom. She had a culture test done, which unfortunately, came back positive. But it baffles me As to how. Her and myself were monogamous and clean. And now the doctor is saying she has hsv. I am in the process of having a blood test done, as I have no symptoms... So a culture isn't an option.
A false positive. Is that possible, could it be mistaken for something else, as many medical conditions can be?
