IgM antibodies against HSV often start to develop one to two weeks after the infection first appears. Typically, the IgM antibody response drops off quickly, making them undetectable after a few weeks or months, depending on the infection. IgG antibodies, on the other hand, develop more slowly yet last for months or even years.

Blood tests for herpes are highly accurate, although they are not perfect. Furthermore, an HSV viral culture or PCR test, both of which could identify HSV in a swab of fluid from herpes sore. This may be more helpful or illuminating than your symptoms.
