I had a result of hsv2 igc type spec test result of 1.35
My corresponding test for hsv1 is <.91. I have recently had some issues with some irritation / slight pain of the urethra but no bumps that I can see and no sores / etc. i did have unprotected sex maybe 3 weeks back. What are my next steps i should take now? Could this be a false positive?
at this point you need to wait until at least 3 months post encounter and repeat your hsv2 igg test at that point and go from there. you tested far too early to get an accurate result so we can't confirm a false positive or not at this point.
