I'd like opinions on my recent HSV 2 igG test result.

I'm entering a new relationship and we decided to both get tested for STD's. I chose to a 10 test panel and had blood drawn this past Friday March 14 at a LabCorp clinic. I received the results yesterday. The HSV results are as follows:

HSV 1 IgG, Type Spec <0.91 0.00-0.90 index 01

Negative 1.09

Note: Negative indicates no antibodies detected to
HSV-1. Equivocal may suggest early infection. If
clinically appropriate, retest at later date. Positive
indicates antibodies detected to HSV-1.

HSV 2 IgG, Type Spec 1.31 HIGH 0.00-0.90 index 01

Negative 1.09

Note: Negative indicates no antibodies detected to
HSV-2. Equivocal may suggest early infection. If
clinically appropriate, retest at later date. Positive
indicates antibodies detected to HSV-2.

My obvious concern is the "High" result of the HSV-2 test. After spending much of yesterday becoming a "Google expert" I feel a bit better and have made an appointment for a consultation with the Westover Heights Clinic. Which is next week, until then I guess I'm looking for additional feedback on my result.

Sexual history: My most recent encounter was unprotected with a woman I've known for several months on December 1, 2017 it was a one time encounter. The previous encounter was also unprotected with another woman whom I was acquainted with in early October 2017 it was a one time encounter. Previous encounters were in 2015. I don't consider myself to have an at risk lifestyle and have never experienced any symptoms of HSV. On a side note I had a severe case of chicken pox in my early teens.

I would appreciate any insight on the subject.

Best regards
