It is true that if a type-specific blood test for herpes is done too soon after infection, it can be falsely negative. It takes a while to develop antibodies to herpes. If you still have concerns, I suggest waiting until 8 to 10 weeks after the possible infection and retest. But this time, please acquire only type-specific antibody testing.
