Proving the Source of Herpes

Many of the people that will knowingly give a person herpes without advance warning will also make ridiculous threats and intimidating statements such as:

“You can’t prove I gave you herpes.”

“It’s my word against yours.”

“You must have gotten it from someone else.  You probably gave it to ME.”

This is pure nonsense.  You know that a person of substance, a person you respected gave you an STD like herpes.  Proving your case is not simple.  We will need to get records, perhaps interview witnesses and conduct other investigations.  However, we have consistently achieved success results in these very challenging and emotional cases.

How and When You Test Can Make A Big Difference in the Success of Your STD Case

One of the most important reasons to speak with Rivers Morrell for a free, confidential and private consultation at (949) 305-1400 is that timing and the strategy of testing is very important in any wrongful STD transmission case.

Testing for an STD - Los Angeles - San Francisco - AnaheimFor example, only 50% of those tested returned a positive test result for herpes after three weeks.

After six weeks from the transmission, over 70% of those tested returned an accurate positive result for the presence of herpes.

The same test is 92% accurate for those who have herpes if they wait 12 weeks from the point of transmission before being tested.

Most doctors will only order an IgG Immunoglobulin test.  While IgG is a valuable and important test it only confirms the presence of infection.  We work with our clients to make sure they also ask for an IgM test.  The Immunoglobulin IgM is primarily found in the blood and lymph systems of our body.  IgM is the first antibody our systems create when we encounter a new infection.

IgM will usually test positive earlier than IgG and eventually fades.  A positive IgM test can help prove the test is recent (helps to establish who transmitted the STD to you).  

The bottom line is this: if you test to early you might get an incorrect “negative” result.  If you wait too long, you might miss the IgM window which helps us to prove recency.  It is important to show what appears to be a “false” early test for herpes which shows positive for IgM followed by a later test which confirms the presence of herpes.  This provides strong evidence and can result in a highly successful outcome in your case.
