did I have it before or not

I recently tested positive for HSV 2.  It was a blood test done after 2 weeks of my last on night stand.  I got a value of 2.15 and the test said anything above 0.90 was a positive.  The question I have is did I probably aready have HSV2 before the one night stand or did I contract it then?

your hsv2 igg is a low positive and at this point, you don't know for sure if you have it or not. since you tested too early, your options are to wait until at least 3 months post encounter and repeat the testing you had done or wait 4 months post encounter and seek out a herpes WB blood test to confirm your status.
