Herpes Contact???

Patient : Boy was exposed to herpes 4 years ago. He doesn't know if he is infected because he never had any symptoms. Also, in those 4 years, he has had 2 sexual partners (a 3.5 year relationship and a 4 month relationship. Neither girl has expressed STD concerns. I have recently had sex with boy, using latex condom (twice in 6 hour period). There were no visible symptoms, although I understand there could be asymptomatic shedding. 1. How long should I wait before getting tested (how long will it take to show on a blood test)? 2. Because he MAY have herpes, is it likely that I contracted it too?
