Reading my herpes select test
So recently I had a fissure on my labia which the dr thought to be from lack of lubricant but did a herpes select test just in case. She told me I tested positive for herpes but from what I have read online the test is negative. Can somebody tell me what they see? My results were as follows:
HSV 1 iGG AB 0.06
HSV 2 type specific AB 0.13
Herpes simplex virus 1.15

Any help would be appreciated.

the herpes igm test is a very flawed test and shouldn't be used on adults.

your provider can not accurately tell you you have herpes based on a + igm. it's actually malpractice to do so.

how long prior to this had you last had sex?

has your partner been tested yet?

My partner has not been tested but neither of us have ever shown any symptoms other than the "fissure" that appeared right after sex. We have been together for 5 months and have not had any other sexual partners so I'm confused on why they would tell me I do have it. It's quite frustrating. What test do you suggest I get and where can I go to get it?

your partner needs to seek out type specific herpes igg blood testing to see what their status is. Once you know their status, you can determine if you need additional testing for herpes or not.

Is the Elisa test accurate because that's what they gave me and if not what test would you recommend?
