herpes symptoms, test keep saying no?
Hello all. Background info: I'm fairly poor. I haven't had health insurance in at least 24yrs, and I'm currently upside down every month without my tax return helping even me out. Anywho- About 8yrs ago I had an outbreak on my penis that I thought was herpes. I went and got a full std panel and got all negative results. I then didn't have any outbreaks for about 7yrs. Recently its happened 3 times in a year. I went and got another full std panel, from a different testing place. Again, all negative. I used what little funds I have and went to a urologist during an outbreak. He was not informative or helpful. He said it was herpes. I told him of my two previous tests being negative, which confused him. A week later he wanted me back for another appointment, but I can't afford any more this year.
What are my options? Are there other testing options then a standard herpes test? Could this be something else? I wish the doc I spent my meager money on could have been more insightful. Any help is greatly appreciated.
