I got my results back and it's neg for hsv2 6 weeks after exposure. However, I have oral hvs1 so I think I have some immunity to hsv2 will this effect my results? For example can my partial immunity delay a positive result for hsv2? Is the blood test accurate? Should I retest Plz advise?

Hey @Surprise for those studies that shows HSV-1 delays seroconversion of HSV-2, and not all do, it is measured as a matter of days on average.

At 6 weeks, about 70% of infected people will test positive, regardless of whether they have HSV-1 or not.

How about the 30 day mark for a blood test? What’s the percentage for positive testing?

A general rule of thumb that approximates the analysis of seroconversion is:

Week 4: 50% of those infected test positive.

Then it increases by 10% each week for the next 5 weeks:

Week 5: 60%

Week 6: 70%

Week 8: 80%

Week 9: 90%

The last up to 10% are spread out over the following 4-8 weeks.

I was told 4-6 weeks was a good time to test so I'm assuming it's in the 70 percent category as well

      I was also dx in June, definitely not thinking of having any prospects on the love life. I actually thought last year it was time to find someone to spend my life with and have a family. I actually I’m so mad at myself, because I believe the dude who gave me this knew, he had this crap.  At that I had also been so careful and picky and the year I tell myself it’s time to open myself and get to know someone this bullshit happens. Never trust someone who gives you too much attention, lesson learned. I hate myself now and days. I have shut everyone out. I can’t deal with anything. It was hard to function. I cry telling myself now I have to live by myself forever and just kill that dream of being married or having children which really hurts.
