My husband and I were intimate with him giving me oral sex. 9 days later we both took Herpes IgM tests in an effort to ease my OCD when it comes to herpes. I was tested for HSV 1 & 2 type specific in August 2008 with both tests coming back negative; and again in November with more negative results. 11 days after our sexual encounter and 2 days after our HSV IgM testing I developed blisters in my throat. My throat didn't hurt after the first day and upon examination my doctor thought it looked like strep but my culture was negative. I asked him about the possibility of herpes and he said he didn't see any cold sores and said that it was most likely herpangina. The blisters only lasted 7 days and weren't painful even when I ate spicy foods. When our IgM results came back, mine was negative and my husbands was positive at 1.24. I was wondering if I should be concerned about having herpes? My husband is planning to get an IgG type specific test in the next week, but it won't do me any good to get one until March and I am so worried. I have read many posts stating that IgM tests are useless but with the blisters in my throat, I can't help but wonder if his results were right. I appreciate any help.
