Equivocal Result for an Early Detection Herpes Test

Hi, I have a question about my test results:

I just an early detection HSV test and it came back equivocal. The other test (Herpes Select) came back negative. My contact that I'm worried about is about 5 weeks ago. Does that mean I have the virus? Or is it just a false positive?

Thanks,

Are you talking about the herpes igm results? If so, it's a poor test in general.  http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/248394  is a prior post by HHH that goes into more details.
