igg blood testing isn't accurate until at least 3 months after the encounter. you'll need to retest at the proper times to be sure of your status.

1 week post encounter you can accurately test for chlamydia and gonorrhea. you have to wait at least 6 weeks for syphilis testing. 3 months for herpes, hiv and hepatitis.  

the test results you were posted are negative. did you have symptoms that they tested or anything?

So basically to sum things up

Those numbers I got as results were negative ?
Even though It says " HERPES DETECTED " ?

& I should get tested in 3 monthes to be 10000 % accurate that I'm clean ?

Are you sure they haven't performed a swab in your genital area? Just the blood test?
If you just had the blood test, there's no reason to be written "herpes detected". That's because your results were negative.

herpes detected is typically how they report lesion culture results. give your provider a call wednesday and ask them specifically if that is the results that were positive or not.
