you should've received one result for hsv1 and one for hsv2.

then which is for hsv1 and hsv2...iGg is from hsv1

your igg is more likely a combined igg result that doesn't differentiate between  hsv1 and hsv2. Ask your provider to properly order the right tests so you get a hsv1 igg and a hsv2 igg test done instead of the one they used.
