One last attempt to properly post reference range:
Below 0.90 is negative.
Between 0.90 - 1.10 is equivocal.
Above 1.10 is positive.
Hi 8 weeks is a good indicator but you do fall into a low risk group so i dont see this turning into a positive at all. And if she did not have any genital sores at the time your risk is close to zero anyway,
Yes, she had no visible sores during our intercourse and says she has always been hsv free. No blisters or specific sores have appeared on me at all. I only got tested because I am experiencing some skin irritation with a burning sensation and wanted to be sure it wasn't the result of a herpes infection slowly appearing. I was tested at 6 weeks after we were together, not 8. Do you still think I can feel sure about my results with no real need to retest?
I'm in a similar boat slept with a girl who has hsv2 and am now at 11 days post encounter and still no signs or symptoms everyday that passes I know it's looking better and better for me. There are so many sti s that u probably have other than herpes u should do more research.
Actually I've been tested for all of them and am negative. Aside from this skin irritation which may or may not be a result of my sexual encounter, I actually have little reason to believe the woman I was with had herpes either. I've known her for years and for what that is worth felt comfortable enough to throw caution to the wind.
But since I still have an irritation, my only real question was the amount of faith I can put into the IGG herpes test specifically at the 6 week point, especially as I have not shown any common signs like herpes blisters and it's now been a full 8 weeks since the intercourse in question happened.
I just want to know if I should now be focusing my time and limited resources on visiting a dermatologist as opposed to additional herpes tests. I am uninsured and thus have to self pay for all of my medical needs so just want an educated opinion about how confident I can be that I don't need additional herpes testing based on my details.
Good luck to you.
