Thank you for the response. Other than the outbreak of lesions, are there any other signs I should be looking for 6+ weeks after the encounter? On another medical question forum, other doctors have provided me with some reassurance that given a protected oral and protected vaginal encounter, my 6 weeks results should be considered accurate and they do not believe I’ve acquired herpes from this encounter but my anxiety won’t let it be put to rest until 12 weeks as I’ve read that 70% of people have detectable antibodies by 6 weeks. What causes others to take longer to have antibodies? I am not on any anti-viral medicines and I have a relatively good immune system. I have no medical issues other than gastritis.
In your medical experience, have you seen other encounters of this nature cause positive results at 12 weeks when condoms were used, there was no outbreak, and the person tested negative at 6 weeks?
Thank you for your time.
