Hi, the information is incomplete.
Its starts off by listing 3.25 but does not say if this is hsv1 or hsv2 and either way it falls into the falls positive range as any number 3.5 and below would need retesting.
The next section only is describing the test.
and the end stating Igm is of no value as we dont use igM.
So basicly your left with the opening numbers of 3.25 which we dont know what they are referring to and either way it needs retesting as is under 3.5
3.25 fo herpes IGg......and 1.63 for herpes igM
so its a false positive??
also it was a combination test..for herpes 1 and 2
The only thing that can be determined from this test is that you probably have an oral HSV1 infection from your youth like more than half the population. This is hence not a surprising outcome at all.
It is the reason why combined HSV1/2 testing is pretty pointless.
Perhaps of more importance is why did you test? What symptoms or concerns did you have?
