interpreting results...

My results were:  

HSV1, IgG <0.90 Index  Ref: <.090  
HSV1, IgM <.80  Index  Ref < 0.80
HSV2, IgG <.90 Index Ref <0.90
HSV2, IgM 0.86 H Index Ref: <0.80 RPR (SERUM)

What does this indicate?  I was told that the test shows that I was "possibly exposed to HSV 2, however the test is inconclusive unfortunately.  The IgG lab test was normal.  The IgM test (which was very minimally elevated) however is not as reliable and can be positive if you were recently exposed to this virus OR to a similar virus it can also cause a false positive."  

There is 0% chance that I was infected w/in the last 10 months, so this result is very confusing.  Could somebody please explain the possibility of this.  

Thank you.

you are negative for both hsv1 and hsv2.

if you haven't had sex in 10 months, no reason to repeat your tests.
