Good update to share. Back in July my 8-week IgG for HSV2 was negative (<0.91). Now I’m at almost 14 weeks since last possible exposure. Still have not developed any symptoms as far as I can tell and no reason to think I have been infected except the positive IgM back in May that my primary care doctor ordered with my routine STD screen.
I am still dealing with a fair amount of anxiety over the IgM. I keep thinking “what if it was right and I just don’t have any symptoms….” I’ve struggled with anxiety disorders earlier in life (in my early 20’s) so it’s very possible I am over thinking things more than I should due to my anxiety-prone personality.
What do you think my chances are of being infected with HSV2? If I do a final IgG test this week at 14 weeks how reliable would that be? If I wait a few more weeks to 16 weeks how reliable would that be?
Thank you for your help!
