I got tested like 3 weeks ago and i was wondering if i'm positive or not??
here are my test results
HSV 2 IgG, Type Spec 6.78 H. 0.00-0.09 index. final 2
comment: negative 1.09
Note: Negative indicates no antibodies detected to HSV2. Equivocal may suggest early infection. If clinically appropriate, retest at later date. Positive indicates antibodies detected to HSV2; coinfection with HSV1 cannot be excluded without type specific testing.
Yes, if your result was 6.78 then you are clearly positive. The note about the negative is just defining the parameters of the test -- anything below 1.09 is considered negative, but your score is well above that.
