I had been sick prior to the statement made up above in the title. I normally never get sick I am a very healthy person.
I had been sick for about two days with a fever of 102-103. Later going to take a shower, I noticed I was a little sore down there. I had my fiancé look, and there was a sore down there that almost looked like a canker sore. I had went to the doctors the next day obviously assuming the worse that I had herpes.

The doctor I was been "blessed" to see, was up front and my nurse was just rude, and emotionless.

The nurse had said "sounds like herpes to me, lets find a room were there are some stirrups."

So after underdressing, getting ready the doctor took one look as said "oh hun, this looks like herpes." of course I end up balling my eyes out, and than she proceeds to ask me if it is physical or psychological pain that I am feeling?!

And upon leaving the doctors, after being given the paperwork, the nurse that had made a crude comment right in the beginning on my way out had said to me, "I bet you learned your lesson, all things that you do in your past catch up with you!"

The doctor had done many tests, but from what I can gather off of my paper work, the doctor had performed a HSV viral culture, a HSV antigen test and a HSV antibody test.

Three days later I get a call back, and the person informed me that ALL of these tests along with all other possible STD's and STI's came back negative and i was tested the second day of my "outbreak" so it was new. It hadn't started healing! But the person on the phone also said to me, well on your doctors not, it says that she was highly suspicious of it, so continue taking your medicine and wait until the next outbreak and get tested again."

I can't explain the emotional and physical pain I have gone through. I have been crying for the past two days, feeling depressed, feeling let down, disgusted in myself. Wondering how I NEVER had ANY symptoms until now. My fiancé know's that i haven't cheated on him, and was thrilled with the news when I told him, but I am still at loss.

Between the results, and the way that I was treated.
I understand that this happens in 1-5 women in the US. I understand that this is normal. But it is still devastating to be told by just looking at me, that I have herpes. I have been with the same man for three years.
