I will try to explain it as simple as possible.
I had sex on 25 August 2012 and on 31 August, I felt a little pain during urinating.
Then on 1 September , I had sex again, the next day i felt itch on my vagina. 2 days later i notice small blister around my vagina and it felt very itchy, but i felt no pain. And i also found 1 blister on my lip but it doesn't hurt. I git fever for about 1 week (from september 5 until 11)
The next day i went to dermatologist and the doctor exam my vagina and she said i got hsv. I asked serelogic test before i took any pills.
The result : 5 September 2012 :
Anti HSV 1 IgG : 0,21 non reactive
Anti HSV 1 IgM : 0,13 non reactive
Anti HSV 2 IgG : 0,11 non reactive
Anti HSV 2 IgM : 0,20 non reactive
The i took anti viral drugs for 7 days and
apply the cream from the prescription.
My husband also did serelogic test couple weeks after
the result is Anti HSV 1 IgG : 3,2 reactive
Anti HSV 1 IgM , Anti HSV 2 both IgG and IgM
all are "non reactive"
I took another anti hsv test along with the 3 months HIV test
The result : 22 November 2012
Anti HSV 1 IgG : 0,49 non reactive - ELISA
Anti HSV 1 IgM : 0,24 non reactive - ELISA
Anti HSV 2 IgG : 0,07 non reactive
Anti HSV 2 IgM : 0,22 non reactive - ELISA
My questions are :
1. Is there possibility that i don't have hsv
based on the test result ?
2. Is it possible that my husband test result was
"False positive" ?
3. Should husband and I get another test ? When is the best time
to test it again ?
There's no lab provide WB in this country.
it's unfortunate that your provider evidently didn't do a lesion culture of your symptoms to have given you better answers :(
at this point, nothing more to do than to wait and if you get a return of symptoms, be seen promptly and if they suspect herpes, they can do a lesion culture and typing. your husband is testing + for hsv1 which can be transmitted to the genital area, mostly through oral sex. the only accurate way to diagnose hsv1 genitally is a lesion culture of active symptoms.
