My questions are these:
1. Is the 92% individual specific or just a function of the test? For example, could someone be negative on day 80 and positive on day 80 with a second test (blood draw)?
2. If someone has a low risk event, no breakout and numerous negative IGGs through week twelve is there anything to confirm?
I guess what I’m trying to say is that while IGG tests are useful to determine if someone has the virus prior to 12 weeks, it seems the only way to know if you don’t have the virus is to wait 12 weeks and get a Western Blot. If that is true there are a lot of people (close to 1 in 10) who have herpes who thought otherwise (and it’s crazy the test isn’t more readily available!). Am I missing something?
Bump (sorry….just thought you might not have seen!)
My stdcheck.com 10 panel test (Quest) at 9 weeks came back all negatives. 🙂
I re-read my post and just want to make clear each of the three separate sexual contacts were very brief….each less than 15 seconds if that long.
