I don’t think that your symptoms resemble herpes at all, but if you want to get a western blot for greater clarity, you should wait 12 weeks after unprotected sex for the last time before doing the test. I suspect that your HSV one infection is longer standing, and I don’t think that your symptoms are consistent with HSV one either. Your antibodies to HSV one will not protect you against acquiring HSV-2. I would agree that you’ve probably had HSV one for a while and you just found out about it through testing, but I can’t say that for certain.
