Great that you continue to have negative HSV 2 results. Genital HSV 1 (which has never been confirmed, right?) would likely prevent you from getting HSV 1 genitally again, yes! And yes, those who have HSV 1 antibody already take slightly longer to make HSV 2 antibody. I think the few days of antiviral therapy that you took will not impact the time to antibody development, assuming you don’t take any more. Again, I seriously doubt that this is an HSV 2 infection! Nothing you have told me about your symptoms suggests to me that this is a new HSV 2 infection. And at 7 weeks past encounter, I think the odds are around 75-80% that you can believe the negative.
This is good news and I seriously hope that you can believe the good news and celebrate it instead of continuing to observe your genitals this closely for the next 9 weeks.
