Validity of IGG type specific tests
Hi all.  about 3 and 1/2 weeks ago I had sex with a girl I know.  We used protection. I subequently developed a sore in an area not covered by the condom. The sore was cultured within 48 hours and was found to be negative.... but I understand that culture tests are hopelessly inaccurate.  IgM tests conducted three weeks after the encounter also negative.  The girl and I also had blood drawn for IGG type specific herpes tests.  Our tests both came back negative.  The last sexual encounter for each of us was last fall.  In theory we should be in the clear.  But I have seen posts from doctors on this site that say if you have a sore...its herpes...regargless of what the tests show and that subsequent testing will likely be positive.  Can I rely on these Igg type specific tests?  We each had the tests done  by seperate labs...hers was labcorp mine was Inova.  Do Igg specific tests from different labs have the same accuracy rate?    Thanks in advance!!
