Need advice about hsv test

Hello.

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.

Thank you

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.

Oh, forgot something. The bumps on my vagina looked like acnes
( individual bump but all over my vagina) and it had white head.
Thank you again :)

OK, Grace. Thank you for the explanation.
Another question : IgG HSV-1 : 3,2 is not "false positive" ?

Thank you

there doesn't seem to be as many false positive issues with hsv1 igg testing as there is with hsv2. We generally don't confirm the hsv1 testing routinely like we do hsv2.
