I have been swab tested (pcr) for herpes last week after another sores came up and this has come back negative I took the swab as soon as the lesion came up and made sure the fluid made contact all over the swab.

    update- went to the clinic this morning and had the sores examined. Nurse says the pcr test is very rarely wrong and that they said I should take the negative result as it is and they won't do another test on it. She believes it is a bacterial infection of some kind and a non sti related cause. She also said these sores do not look like herpes so all that taken into account I don't believe I have it. I have been back and forth 4 times now with the clinic and seen various different people who all said they don't think it is herpes and along with the negative pcr test I can't keep doing this. Guess I really don't have it
