Should I continue testing?

Hi,

A few months back, I engaged in protected vaginal sex with a woman who was HSV2 positive (although I did not know at the time). After finding out, I began getting blood tests for both HSV1 & HSV2. Results are below:

At one month, both HSV1 & HSV2 IgG < .90
At 3 months, HSV1 IgG = 0.27, HSV2 IgG = 0.15
At 3.5 months, both HSV1 & HSV2 IgG < .90

The first & third tests were done at LabCorp and the second was at Quest. I believe it was the HerpesSelect test all 3 times.

I haven't noticed any symptoms, but have read that since symptoms differ by person, they may go unnoticed.

I'm wondering if anyone sees a need for me to continue testing at this point as a result of this encounter. Thanks for your help.

lapcorp's herpes test is the captia test.

your tests are all negative. there's no reason for any more testing.
