Herpes blood test

How soon after exposure to genital herpes will it show up in a blood test?
I had sex on the 1st then found out I was at the beginning of an outbreak. My outbreaks occur on my upper left butt cheek. I started to get an itchy red spot but no blisters. My girlfriend went to the Dr for a blood test and it came back positive. The time between our contact and the results of her test as only 7 days. Will The herpes antibodies show up that soon in a blood test?
Is there some other test that is that quick?

Let me make sure I have this all straight here -

You have a history of hsv2 genitally.  Your ob's are typically on your buttocks.

Your gf you thought was hsv2 negative but when she got tested she was hsv2+.  

Please correct anything I have wrong.


How long have you and your gf been together? has she ever been tested for herpes before?  do you know her numeric results from her test she just had - ie hsv1 igg 5. 9 and hsv2 igg 6.8 or whatever they were?
