low positives are unfortunately far too common. your continued negative testing confirms a false positive previously for you.

thanks grace for ur reply ,i just have a question to close this issue and remove it friom my mind , can the first test hsv2 herpeselect lapcorp elisa  =1.7 be true positve and then the immunoblot herpeselect lapcorp10 days later be false negative? i mean can igg antibodies be detected and then disappear after that ?? also i made another elisa test 1 year later which came back negative but they use another scale 11 eu/ml for postives instead .9  .9 to1.1  and >1,1 . (just one brief 4 min  vaginal sexual  with condom with asymptomatic girl i dont know her serostatus ) . i didnt show any symptoms . i just wanted to be definite in everything to get ur right advice. thanks in advance for ur help
