It looks like my initial post/questions didn’t completely appear even though I was under 500 characters so here are the questions:
1. You’ve advised there is good agreement between a negative supplemental and a negative WB. He isn’t convinced because of this statement, “Negative supplemental indicates not infected with genital herpes; or infected but not seroconverted (primary. Infection)”. He thinks he could still be infected and it just didn’t show up due to the timing or that he could have tested negative because “it” wasn’t “active” at the time he took the test. If the supplemental test was done approximately 6 months from encounter, would that have been enough time for seronversion to be done by then and his negative supplemental means he’s truly negative?
2. It’s almost 9 months since the encounter and he has never presented. Based on everything shared should he feel confident that he’s negative based on 3 low positives, a negative supplemental after 6 months and has not presented at this time?
