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

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.

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?
