Please respond

This question does not deal with HIV but herpes. If you took a blood test 33 days after your last contact with someone would that be enough time to develop antibodies to Herpes? I heard it was 6 to 8 weeks. Thanks.

Should I get retested? Are the blood tests accurate?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

The blood tests are accurate. It might be early for IgG antibody tests for herpes. If an IgM antibody test was performed, it probably would pick it up. MH

emergency room testing
New cure for AIDS !!!!????
