HSV 1/2 IgG results

I just recently got a STD panel. Everything came back negative except my HSV-2 IgG. I've done someresearch on the internet like most people do. I want to know if it is a Positive like the test says it is or if it is a low positive I need to confirme with more testing. I have never had aany symptoms I am aware of. I am a 38 yr old male. Here re my results

HSV-1 IgM Neg
HSV-2 Igm Neg

HSV-1 IgG Neg
HSV-2 IgG 3.08

This would need confirmation being a low positive. Obtain a Westernblot test or wait a few months and retest with IgG again.

Ok. Thank you! I have never tested for anything. I was concerned but not half as concerned as my GF is!
