I'm not an expert, but I have done a lot of research igm is what is SUPPOSED to indicate
recent infection, HOWEVER it is VERY INACCURATE so much so that it shouldn't even be done. Whether you should be on suppressive medication is up to you. You may also want to consider confirmatory testing for your low hsv 2 igg depending on how long its been. Good luck.

herpes igm testing isn't recommended to be done on adults for the purpose of diagnosing herpes. in theory it would reflect newly acquired infection if it was more accurate.

how long prior to testing had you last had sex?
