The last time I had unprotected sex was October. I know I have HSV1 from years ago, but I am concerned I have now have HSV2 since October. I haven’t had any active outbreak, but I have had a lot of nerve pain and the feeling an outbreak is happening but no actual outbreak occurs. I started prophylactic antivirals in January (started with acyclovir, then moved to valacyclovir), neither had any effect on the symptoms. I worked up the doses of both with no effect, so I have now stopped taking them. I have taken a few HSV Igg tests since January, all negative for HSV2, but also negative for HSV1 (which I know I have, confirmed by swap result years ago of my only ever active outbreak). I have been on antiviral when taking each of the igg tests since January. I want to know how long till I can take an accurate HSV igg test (normal igg blood test and also blot)?
