Accuracy of IgG test after 10 weeks for HSV-2

Recommended Posts

Hi. I performed oral sex on someone 10 weeks ago and 3 days ago I had an HSV2 IgG test and it was negative.

I developed a sore throat 3 weeks after oral sex and throat swab was positive for HSV but they didn’t check for type. I had severe anxiety at that time which could have led to HSV in throat.  IgG for HSV-1 was positive 10 weeks after exposure (it was positive 4 weeks after exposure as well).  I used to have cold sores when I was a child

My questions are:


1-Is it possible to get HSV-1 in throat after many years without having cold sores?

2- how accurate is IgG test for HSV-2 after 9.7 (~10) weeks?
