Herpes Simplex 2 test results

I got tested for STD's and came back positive for Herpes Simplex 2, the test was called herpeselect.  The result was a 1.99 which was out of the range. I would like to know how long it would take to get a result of 1.99.  I had a possible encounter a week before I got tested and would like to know if it is possible that I got herpes and tested positive within a week, thanks

At this point you'll need to wait a few more months and then pursue additional testing. your result is a low positive and needs confirmed with further testing.
