My HSV-2 IGg level was 10.85. I know I have HSV-2. Does this amount mean I had a recurrent infection when tested or that I just previously exposed to HSV. What number says the antibodies are extremely high? Does a very high number mean your body is really fighting the infection.
I went and got an std screening after breaking up with my ex of 9 months. I was given the results .01 for Hsv2! Its was through blood testing. I'm confused as to what this means? The dr that gave me my results said that I have it because any thing over .01 means you have it.
I recently did my HSV 1+2 Screening and my IGG count is 0.88 which reads as equivocal and IGM is 0.11, which reads negative. What should be the reason for this? I tested when I was having maximum discomfort in the genitals. Do I need to re-test again and what should a negative IGG count mean if it comes out that way?
i was tested negative for hsv 2 igm and VDRL test in july but after having these breakout repeat as the first with these tiny water pumps in the genitsl,i went to repeat testing for herpes this time lab did a more sensitive test.This was done 3 months later.This time they did herpes 2 igg and thay also came back negative but i see anti body level 5.89.Can anyone tell me what does this mean as am a little confuse to what this means.
