herpes test results???

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.

Hi, what you posted is not clear. First it says HSV 2 IgG, Type Spec     6.78 , this means that it is positive without a doubt if the positive value is 1 or above.

Note sure what the comment of 1.09 means as is missing some details.
The note below seems to be just a generalized comment.
Can you post the entire test result?

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.
