Hi there!

When you take the tests, these detect the antibodies against the infections i.e. the body’s immune reaction against the virus and not the virus itself. An increased antibody titre is usually indicative of a previous infection and it is not uncommon to test positive for EBV or CMV. It is the virus/ infection and not the body’s immune response that is responsible for the adverse effects and hence having tested positive for EBV/ CMV without signs of infection should not be anything to worry about.
Hope the information is helpful.

Take care!
