understanding my blood test result for HSV Type-2

yes,

i was wondering if someone could help me understand my test result because i didnt understand clearly.
i mean i was told that i dont have the infection but if i just wanted to know what the numbers meant so i could explain it to someone if they asked or just for my understanding.


Basically says

Tests: (1) HSV Type 2-Specific Ab, IgG (163147)
! HSV 2 IgG, Type Spec       <0.91 index                      0.00-0.90       *1

                                                                   Negative         1.09

I'm sorry - I can't figure out which number is actually your result.

If it is a 1.09, that's equivocal, not negative.

There should be a number next to where it says "hsv2 AB, IgG" - it will be next to it or on the same line.

I just need that number.

I responded to your pm, and its negative, but that has to be one of the most confusing result I've ever seen.
