About 75% of folks have seroconverted by that time. It's not likely you have herpes but it's best to repeat the test in another month or two to be sure.

is it really only 75% at 9 weeks? i took a biokit rapid test, and according to "Ability of a Rapid Serology Test To Detect Seroconversion to Herpes Simplex Virus Type 2 Glycoprotein G Soon after Infection", "the POCkit-HSV-2 test detects seroconversion within 4 weeks of presentation of 80% of patients with HSV-2 episodes"... my exposure was apposition, and it might have been mostly clothed... i should be ok then right?
