I am a female. Recently went for blood test, and results came back with the following. My doctor explain that I am only HSV 1 positive, but as I study the test results, I don't quite get how it is. I would love to have some feedback on what my test results really stand for.
- HEPATITIS B SURFACE AB, QL Reactive
- HSV 1 IGG HERPESELECT AB 1.01 H Interpretation: Equivocal
- HSV 2 IGG HERPESELET AB 0.15 Interpretation: Negative
- HSV IgM AB TITER 1:80H
I went to a STD clinic when I had something that I wasn't sure what it was. The doctor said what I had was genital herpes, he prescribed me with medications. I went to my GYN for a blood test two weeks after the outbreak, and that was the result I got back. However, I have to say the outbreak I had looked nothing like what I see on images of genital herpes, but the symptoms of genital herpes outbreak was quite similar.
My partner had a cold sore before the outbreak, and I figure his cold sore could have been HSV 1, where he had possibly transmitted to me through oral sex.
I am still not clear exactly what I have. Any thoughts?
My partner went to a free clinic to do a blood test, and his test result was negative, which it's hard to believe my doctor says I have HSV 1, and he doesn't. I may as well get tested in a few weeks again.
