Negative at 8 weeks

Hi everyone -

I had some atypical herpes symptoms after sex with a female and tested negative at about 8 weeks. Anyone here test positive after an 8 week test? I took the type specific igg test.

Thanks!

You really need to repeat the test at the 16 week mark to have your final answer. should you get a recurrence of symptoms, be seen promptly for a lesion culture and typing.

Most of the time what folks consider atypical herpes symptoms, really means it wasn't herpes but definitely repeat your test to be sure.
