Herpes Igm Testing
I am a little freaked out about my incident.  I got a HSV2 Igg test NEGATIVE at 20 days.  Can I test Igm to confirm that I was not exposed or is it too late ?  I am on day 21.  I know for a fact I dont have HSV 1 but have had chicken pox in the past.

You don't want to get an igm test. They are not recommended and you gain nothing from the results.  As you said, you've had chicken pox already so the results would be flawed.  Read some of the other postings here and you'll see the experts recommend the igg test.  Repeat your testing at 3 months like me!
