positive pcr, negative igg

Recommended Posts

I had no symptoms, but I had had unprotected sex in December. So my GP ordered a full STI screen in January. I:

1. Tested HSV2 positive by pcr on urine 5 weeks post exposure

2. Tested negative for igg at week 8 post exposure. 

My GP says to wait till 6 months. She also says I may not have seroconverted.

I'd like to do another igg test at 12 weeks because I can't deal with the uncertainty. Surely antibodies will have developed by 12 weeks.

Yep, 12 weeks is the standard time for antibodies to achieve detectable levels. And to be sure, get a Western Blot instead of an IgG.
