Herpes test result
Hi,
I had those blisters and vesicles on the utter surface of the genital for more than one month. My doctor said it was herpes for sure. But as I just have sexual activity with my husband, and he doesn't have herpes, I couldn't understand how I could possibly get it from. So I wanted to have the blood test.
My blood test result is as the following:

Herpes1 IgG ( EIA) ................0.0
Herpes2 IgG ( EIA) ................0.0

can I interpret that I have no vaginal herpes? And if it is not Herpes what can it be?

I really appreciate your replies.

( I am taking acyclovir right now)

if he's testing negative and so are you, it's not likely to be herpes going on.

sometimes the blood tests miss hsv1. did you have a lesion culture done of your active symptoms when you had them?

First I want to thank you for helping me. It is really helping to find a forum like this.
No. I didn't have a lesion culture. Should I ask my doctor to take this lesion culture? Last night I noticed a new lesion on my buttock  near the rectum. Do we usually have herpes on that part too?
