Hi Terri, I’ve purchased a following 3 questions as I would like clarification on the below if possible – I don’t plan on testing with the IGG given I don’t have any symptoms in the upcoming week or so as I’ve seen how unreliable they can be.
1. If I don’t have symptoms within this 10 day period, given I will be checking daily for the slightest symptom – Would you believe I can move forward with absolute certainty that I have not caught HSV from this encounter?
2. Is it true that all individuals will experience a primary outbreak within the 10 day period from an encounter but it’s just some go unnoticed or are brushed off as something else?
3. To confirm, is it a 10 day period where you’d see symptoms or 21 days? I’ve seen different statements online from third parties but I’ve also seen that 11-12 days would be too late for a primary outbreak.
Again, thank you for your responses.
