Igg False Positive??

I was getting a routine STD checkup that I do about every 6 months.

The results came back positive for HSV1 1.96 and HSV2 1.66 (igg)

I always wear a condom and have never had any symptoms of anything.

How possible is it that this is a false positive?

condoms are not 100% protection against herpes transmission. just a fyi.

how long has it been since you last had sex?

are you in the US?

ok at this point, you will need to wait at least 3 months after you last had sex and repeat the testing you had done. your testing was done too early for herpes, hiv , syphilis and hepatitis.
