Went to the Drs for a required/ mandatory VDRL test. Decided to get a STD test too since it was free. Blood was drawn for the vdrl, and a urine sample was taken (I think for HIV or STD) sampling. Went back for the results and everything was neg except for Herpes 2 Simplex. I asked to see the paper with the results on it and it said positive with a 1. Something. I have not had any type of intercourse at all since a year ago (1 time). I am wondering if I should get a another test done. Also, I had chickenpox about a LONG time ago, does that affect my results at all?
your hsv2 igg is a low positive and will need confirmed with further testing. We recommend seeking out a herpes WB blood test if you are in the US. how to get this test done is listed in our read before posting post on the forum.
