herpes fobia

hi everyone

it's been 10 weeks since receiving oral sex. 6 weeks after the exposure, i tested negative for HSV1 and HSV2 using both IGG and IGM.

i have couple of questions and plz i need somebody to answer me


1- I know the testing gold standard is 4 months, but how possible that both IGG and IGM turn positive at the 4 months mark

2- for those who get paper-like cuts OB, are they accompanied with fluids coming out from the cuts?

3- and how those cuts feels like?

4- can i consider a 3 months herpes test as conclusive, or is there any test that i can run in a period less than 4 months.

plz answer me as am so anxious

thanks for your help

1- I know the testing gold standard is 4 months, but how possible that both IGG and IGM turn positive at the 4 months mark.I would not worry about the IgM as it should not be used to determine whether or not someone has herpes, it can take up to 4 months for the antibodies to build in your system, so it is very possible if you have the virus it will be picked up then

2- for those who get paper-like cuts OB, are they accompanied with fluids coming out from the cuts? I do not recall, sorry maybe someone else can shed some light

3- and how those cuts feels like? they sting but to the touch it felt like I cut myself with a nail

4- can i consider a 3 months herpes test as conclusive, or is there any test that i can run in a period less than 4 months.3 months may be ok but to be sure I would wait until the 4 month marl

plz answer me as am so anxious

thanks for your help
