I have posted before and seems now I am just writing after every annual exam I get because for the past 3 times I get tested for herpes I always get the call that I come back positive for HSV 2. I am waiting for the numbers on this specific reading but the other 2 times it is always around 1.1 IgG.
This may be a dumb question but 3 separate blood tests, over 3 years, all "low"positives and no outbreak or none that i can recognize anyway--is it safe to assume I have genital herpes? I will post these results and the type of test once i hear back from my doctor. The only thing I know about the test is that it does have the ability to determine the different from HSV 1 and 2.
yes i did...they are talking about false postives, Western blot tests...im more confused now.
I should have mentioned that 2 years ago I test 1.1 IgG for HSV and they had me retest, came back negative and then this would be my third...1.17 2 years later---my dr. says i was exposed 6mos. plus ago so this is nothign iw ould have gotten from a recent partner...im jsut trying to figure this out. Two years ago I dismissed the 1.1 bc of the second negative so I dont knwo what to do with these results. Somethingi s going on here...if I had this for 2 years, wouldnt my blood levels be higher than a 1.17 after 2 years?View Thread
