Yes great indication, p to about 80% of infected people have turned positive at this point.
I know it will be a wait, but given it seemed the sores were of sufficient concern for a doctor to swab for herpes, then a 12 week test to confirm the negative is required (assuming you do not have HSV1).
You're well on your way with negative swabs and negative antibodies to this point.
Hey, I hate to hijack a post, but I am curious, why you state that a 12 week test for HSV2 might be impacted by a previous HSV1 infection? I assume that it would push the effectiveness date back? If so, why?
I do not believe it is proven, but by observation the bulk of the extremely small number of people who test positive from 12-16 weeks have HSV1. The theory is the effectiveness of the HSV1 antibodies slows the learning process for the development of a HSV2 response.
