I had unprotected vaginal sex with an hsv2 positive woman. It was a onetime encounter. I didn’t see an outbreak on her. I have tested for hsv2 using the hepeselect Igg at 6, 8, and at 73 days almost 10.5 weeks. I will test @ 12 weeks but I need to know right now where I stand. I have a partner, and I want to protect her. Please advise.
1) Odds of person catching it in a onetime encounter
2) At 73 days how reliable is the igg blood test (what percentage).
Note: I have hsv1; I don’t know how that affects anything.
hard to say, there are no studies that define precisely the seroconversion probabilities at 10wk.
if you're negative at week 10, it's a pretty good indication that most probably you are indeed negative. most people will have seroconverted at 10wks and almost all of them will seroconvert by 12 wks.
Hi, I thankfully testes negative a bit after 16 weeks. I tested through Labcorp
I had myself tested 10 times over the course of 16 weeks. It came back consistently positive hsv1 and negative hsv2. Is any further testing necessary?
My wife wants to get pregnant, so I want to be extra cautious. I did not sex with her until after the week 13 negative.
