If you had a hsv2 igg of 4.06 then no it's not likely to be a false positive.
The labcorp blood test is reliable and fda approved.
I encourage you and your gf to read the herpes handbook at www.westoverheights.com to learn more about herpes and how to reduce her risk. I assume she was tested too and is negative? Have you two discussed daily suppressive therapy to lower her risk even more than just using condoms?
Thanks for getting back to me Grace but now I am more confused because I just spoke with one of the top facilities ( my GF doctor is there) and they told me unless there is a break out - they can never be 100% sure if it's herpes. The antiobodies means there was exposure - and the test I was given they said was ****...they would never give a patient that test even if the patient asked for it.....so i guess we'll just have to see if there is ever a break out....thanks though....
Unfortunatley it sounds like they really don't understand herpes blood tests where you spoke to them at :(
If you have the antibodies, you have herpes. The lab is wrong. Herpes is a lifelong infection that may or may not show symptoms. A score of 4+ would rarely be false positive.
