hello i need help

hello i have a question i tested positive on a non specific herpes test and without knowin the type i took antiviral famivir and i tested again after 1 month andthe result was negative for both types.

can famivir suppress the antibody to a level that it produce a negative test result?
i asked a doctor he said once you develop antibodies they stay life long medication does not suppress the antibodies they just inhabit the viral replication.
will taking famivir for 10 days affect the test result???
pleasse i need this information i am very confused......

a 10 day course of famvir won't affect your blood test results.

when you repeated your test, was it a type specific test?

in india we dont get tests that are fda approved but the test was a type specific test that showe both test results seperate.
hsv 1 was 30.9 eu/ml and hsv 2 was 36.4 eu/ml
ref values are
negative below 58 eu/ml
equivocal 58 to 70 eu/ml
positive above 70 eu/ml.
