Just recieved results indicating hsv1 positive with lgg 1.74 (Negative for hsv2 /Under .90 < )
Possible exposure time 6 mos prior to test
question . What is the variability range of test Results in a very short period?.
Could my result be actually at or less than 1.0 ? (if i got tested in rapid succession )
question If the one and only partner i could have gotten exposure from, tests negative for hsv1 and hsv2
( tested at the same time in excess of 6 months ) what are the implications of my results ? if any
Question . I understand positive begins at Lgg 1.1, however, i've heard that under 2.0 ( or even 3.0 ) the margin
of error ( false positive ) increases well beyond the 5% margin of error range . Is that correct ?
question is the 1.1 LGG result a reliable standard to confirm HSV1 ? Should the standard be higher ?
question Does the low lgg result indicate recent or old exposure since my possible exposure is more than 6 months
