Technically, that's an equivocal score - not positive, not negative. Positive is 1.10.

You can get another IgG if you want to see what it says, or you can get a Western Blot test.

If it were me, I wouldn't worry if you haven't had any symptoms, because there's a very good chance this is negative, but I'm not you and can't tell you what to do.

Your doctor can order the Western Blot, or you can get it through Terri Warren at Westover Heights - https://westoverheights.com/getting-a-herpes-western-blot/

Technically if I had’  It I would know After anything more than 4 months because it would be way higher am I correct?
Yes, but it's a bit tricky.

The testing guidelines state that anything over a 1.10 is positive. Most experts and the CDC believe that anything under a 3.5 needs to be confirmed. After 4 months, if you had it, I'd expect your number to be higher, too, which is why I wouldn't worry if it were me.

If it were me, I'd call it a fluke and move on, but I can't make that decision for you.
Thank you God bless.
