HSV 1&2 Results

I just tested positive for Herpes 1 & 2.  My results are as follows:

HSV-1 aB IgG  3.9 H <0.90 POSITIVE    
HSV-2 aB IgG  2.3 H <0.90 POSITIVE

This may sound like a dumb question, but how accurate (or strongly positive) are these results?  I've only had one partner since my last (negative HSV2) test 2 years ago.  He says he has never tested positive for herpes.  I've pretty much lost all hope after this positve test...

I got my Results and come out with a 57.2  for HSV-1. I am puzzled that it could be so high

Your partner needs to get himself a type specific herpes igg blood test now to see what his status is now. If he's hsv2 negative since you have a history of past negative hsv2 results then you need to pursue additional testing to confirm your low positive hsv2 result.  Results under 3.5 for hsv2 have a chance of being a false positive.

It's easier if you start your own thread in the future trakaz :)


Your results look like they aren't really just for hsv1 ( unless you mistyped them and they are actually 5.72 - please check your results ).  If you really had a 57.2 result then you probably didn't have a type specific igg blood test for hsv1 and hsv2 and really had a combined test which was a waste of time and money.
