Herpes simplex antibody value?
Hi, i am exposed to unprotected oral sex with my new gf, after 9 weeks i took ELISA HSV TYPE II antibody test. these were the results

HSV IGG = 0.65  (1.1 positive)
HSV IGM = 0.42

AM i not infected by hsv? or this 9 week  is enough for the body to produce the antibody against hsv.
I also want to know if a body is infected with hsv will the blood platelets level go down?

if you had contracted hsv1 from receiving oral sex, odds are you would've had very obvious and painful lesions within a few days to 3 weeks of being infected.

were you  tested for hsv1, hsv2 or both?

does your gf have hsv1, hsv2 or both?

if I could read I'd see you were only tested for hsv2 - duh!

why weren't you tested for hsv1 too? hsv1 was your risk from receiving oral.

you had the wrong testing done - it was non-type specific testing done.

that said, odds are you would've had very obvious symptoms had you contracted hsv1 genitally from receiving oral. really no reason for more testing.
