1. Are you saying that you have had cold sores before the sexual encounter on Nov. 19th? Or are you saying that you never had a sore on your lip before the sexual encounter?
4. could that have been a scab?
5. The IgG test can take up to 16 weeks to be positive – 5 weeks may not be long enough to make antibody
6. The IgM test, for other disease states, can indicate new infection if it is positive, but for herpes, that is not the case and there are many false positives on the IgM test so I don’t want you to take that test.
My impression is, given all of this, that you likely have herpes, thought I have no idea what type or how long you have had it. Was any swab testing done from the lesions at your OB’s office?
You have one more post to make.
