how accurate 15 weeks after exposure

15 weeks after exposure,I do hsv 2 blood test again and the result is

ELISA method

IGG HSV2 : 2.5 negative
IGM HSV2 :1.6 negative

negative : <20
borderline: 20-25
positive: 25

do you think blood test after 15 week is accurate??

thanks

You may have had the infection a long time.

Don't believe too much in the arginine/lysine relationship to cold sores. There may be a weak link of arginine to outbreaks in a few people, but no impact of lysine at all on anyone.

Don't give up anything unless you're sure of the link in yourself, everyone is different.

Not quite sure where you are, I've only seen test results like that a few times on here.

If your decimal points are all in the right place, then you are conclusively negative given 15 weeks beyond the exposure of concern.

No, you are negative?

What's happening for you to question this result?

actually i got HSV 1 from my last oral sex,i don't mind to get hsv 1,that's why I am a bit worried if i will get HSV 2... i just want to get definitive answer about my result status of HSV 2

so,I am free from HSV 2,right??

thanks

No you do not have HSV2.

What makes you think you have HSV1 and where abouts?

Ahh OK sorry I thought I read your original post as negative for both HSV1 and HSV2.

Most HSV1 infections are oral and from your youth. This would be more likely the case than from a previous partner?

Do you ever get cold sores in either location?

i never got cold sore in my entire life,

when i did test of hsv 1 (2 month ago),first result was 2.41 IGG,then Terri Warren said it was probably "false positive",the I did the test again and show 5.41 IGG,means it is truly positive

so,i catch from kissing...

btw after 15 weeks,i never experience cold sore but i experience tingling sometime but never experience outbreak at all

since that time,I consume lysine daily and i really love working out but i avoid pre training supplement because there is arginine inside

because i heard that arginine can trigger outbreak..
