I am so confused i went to planned parenthood 3 weeks ago and tested for std's including hsv 1 and 2...I did not hear anything untill 1 week ago in a letter mailed to me, All it said " You have herpes" I was like wow!!! I never had symptoms so I was confused..Thank god I tested neg for everything else...But positive for HSV 1 and 2...I was not giving any index for hsv 1 but for HSV 2 5.0..I have been reading about the index that is a high positive..What are my chances of that being a false positive...I was told that a IGg test was performed when i asked for a copy of my labs I was not giving a copy...IDK what to do here I am currently waiting on my new labs...So what are the stats on false positive with that high of a index?? Has there ever been a false positive with an higher index?
