Testing Quality

Recommended Posts

On September 25th, I had unprotected sex with a friend of mine. Because I freaked out over the encounter, I asked my partner to be tested. He had said he hadn't had sex since mid June-early July timeframe. He had twho negative igg tests (October 18, November 21). So, his tests were done 3-4 months post his last sexual encounter, prior to me.


Now, I am a very anxious person, I suffer from generalized anxiety disorder. I feel I should still be tested. On January 15h it'll be 16 weeks post his and my encounter. I will note that earlier in 2016, I had an igg test done and it was negative. Prior to that I had not had any sexual encounters in 2 years.


My question is this.... should I even be worried at this point? And when I take the test, if it is negative, should I consider it a definite answer and just let it go?


I read that HerpeSelect tests are 95% accurate and that figure is making me rather nervous. I'm afraid of testing negative and then experiencing some sort of outbreak later on.
