HSV testing, results interpretation confusion

I am 27 years old. I tested for HSV in February 2013 and again on August 2013,
the results are the same as follows:

- Herpes Simplex Virus IgG Positive (10.00)
- Herpes Simplex Virus IgM Negative(0.50)

- first doctor I visited told me that you have the virus in your body.
- second doctor I visited told me that you don't the virus in your body.

Which of the interpretation is correct, and what should I tell to my future wife ?

Please give me accurate answer. Thank you

With igg type specific tests it gives number values to each. The test your showing may be totaled the 2 and you are only positive for hsv1 which you may have contracted in childhood. You need a igg type specific that shows the number values of each before you make this an issue ok?

Hi, well surely the igg indicates positive. The igm has no value as is a flawed test.
Was this type specific, i mean is the igg 10 for hsv 1 or hsv2? If its hsv1 and youve never had an outbreak, its most likely oral that you picked up at childhood.

Hi Life360,
for both test, it was not type-specific.
Six months ago I had rash on my genital (penis), that was the reason I went for the first test. but the doctor could not figure-out if it was an outbreak or just a skin condition, because the rash does not show until I was erected.
what can you deduce from this?
Thank you.
