are you 100 % sure ? Because if you are that's honestly great news

I got tested because I had unprotected sex with a fool and heard from one of my close friends that he supposably had herpes .

The results indicate that Herpes WAS' in fact detected , But got those numbers .

- Thank you , again (: .

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?

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.
