Hello guys, just an update I guess. I spoke to the researcher last week and he told me not to test anymore. I asked about the western blot and he said not take it because it was not going to help me in anyway. He said that usually the igg is reliable at 8 weeks and since I tested a few times after the 8th week I should be fine. The reason he did not advise to do the western blot was for 2 reasons. 1) becuase it will not guarantee me 100% the results and 2) because I don't have any real symptoms so even if the test were to be positive I would not know where I would have it either oral or genital. I'm glad you guys moved forward and got it done. I hope everything turns out good for all of us. Keep me posted of you guys don't mind.
Those scores are really low, so I wouldn't expect you to be positive. The only issue might be is that the IgG misses 30% of hsv1 infections.
Have you had any of these lesions cultured? That would be the best way to determine if they are herpes and what type they have. If you received oral sex, you could get genital hsv1, and the blood test will only tell you if you have hsv1, not where you have it. The best plan is to get a PCR swab done within 48-72 hours of a lesion appearing.
Even if you haven't had them cultured, has a doctor seen them?
