I recently had test done involving all std's. Everything came back as non-reactive, but the HSV 1 and 2. The results were as followed:
HSV IgM AB not detected
HSV1 IgG Type 3.62H
HSV 2 IgG Type 5.00H
My question is does this mean that I am infected with the virus? I have been celibate for the past two years and before that I was only with my husband. When I questioned my Dr. about this, he gave me two different answers. I really need to know what this means so that I can be at peace within myself.
Thanking you in advance.
Thank you much for responding. So this is a accurate positive then?Should I be retested to be sure that it is accurate reading? How can I find out how long I've had it? I've never had any symptoms so this is a real shocker to me. So what can I do to insure that my mate does'nt contract it? or is there not a suppressor for it? In this case, oral sex is not permissible without it being transmitted?
