I was diagnosed HSV2 positive today from an HSV 1/2 IGG, HERPESELECT TYPE SPECIFIC AB test.
3 weeks before this blood test, (13 weeks after possible exposure) I was swabbed, and negative.
Today my results, 17 weeks after possible exposure, are:
HSV2: 1.24 , H-Flag
I have yet to see sores, blisters, experience any pain, etc. My only hint that something was off was that in the 3 days following my unprotected sexual encounter, I had an itchy vagina, which soon tested positive for Candida and was treated as such. That yeast infection alone was enough to prompt me to test for HSV; otherwise I have no symptoms.
I do not know if that partner is positive for HSV2. However, he gets cold sores, and got one the week after we had contact. I am actually surprised to be negative for HSV1.
Is it possible I have a false negative of HSV1, AND a false positive for HSV2?
I am willing to do a Western Blot. I am just a bit suspicious of the fact it seems to only be available through "Westover Heights Clinic" and Terri Warren. Why are there no other leading voices or agencies on this test?
