After being exposed to herpes how. long does it take for you to get herpes?

Herpes simplex

Transmission
An average of six to eight days after exposure signs and symptoms of genital herpes can appear. This period between transmission and the start of genital herpes symptoms is called the incubation period. In some cases, the incubation period can be as short as one day or as long as 26 days.

How long does it take for herpes IgM antibodies to disappear - for a person to test negative after exposure?

Herpes simplex

Antibodies
Positive test results for HSV-2 indicate genital herpes. If this was IgM then in 6-8 weeks it should convert to IgG antibodies, but this is immaterial. Either you have this or you don't and once you have it, it will remain with you for the rest of your life. We do not yet have a cure for Herpes simplex viral infection.

How long does it take for IgG herpes antibodies to show up? What's the most recent your exposure could have been if you test with low amounts?

Herpes simplex

Antibody
Generally 2-4 weeks is the time necessary for antibody formation, but this may be IgM antibody, followed by conversion to IgG in about 6-8 weeks, but this is highly variable from person to person. There are some false-negative results as well.

Yes

IGG test for herpes is the test indicating prior exposure. IGM test for herpes or other virus shows if there is a new or resolving new infection. Hope this helps.

Dr. Allen Seely answered:

how long would it take herpes to show up on a blood test?

<2 weeks

Open-uri20120302-8284-15nayh1
It usually take1-2 weeks for a healthy immune system to produce IgM anti-bodies to a viral infection. There are 2 types of Herpes Simplex 1 AND 2, so both tests are available. If a patient has IGG Herpes antibodies then the patient has already been EXPOSED 'some time ago.' Hope that helps
