IgG test results

Recommended Posts

racerchick16

Just wondering-if anyone is willing to share on their test results for the IgG specific HSV blood tests?

Mine were HSV 1 <.91

HSV 2 1.81

Is this a normal number for people who have had blood tests?

I have also had (I think IgM-not specific to which type) and it came back negative.

Most people consider 1.81 to be a low positive and should be retested. Think of it as a second opinion.

What Mr. Smith is correct. If you haven't already done so, I would say go to www.ashastd.org and post your question. There is woman who will answer your question in detail about retesting. Anything that is 3.5 and lower is considered in the low range and they recommend retesting. I didn't know this myself until I went on there and started researching..it's true! I was told to retest after 3-4 months (after my last sexual encounter) using a BioKit test or WesternBlot testing. I hope this helps.

      Hey @sheikha and welcome to the website. Different tests around the world have different numbers as to what means positive.  Do you have details of what test was performed? Does the paperwork indicate what number means positive? For some tests it’s 1.1, others 11 and some more than 20!

      What symptoms brought you to test in the first place

      Over 3.3 is a strong positive. You could repeat that test. I'd assume I had it.

      Lysine seemed to dry the blisters during outbreaks.  They would take about the same time to heal but there would be no/less fluid while using lysine.  At first it seemed like it was reducing the amount of outbreaks, but after a couple months they were coming just as often as before - if not more often.

      Just been diagnosed but no symptoms beyond a tingling in my uretha opening. Result via IgG was <3.5 herpes 1 and >3.3 herpes 2..(what does that even mean in terms of advancemen). 4 Drs later - told can be a false positive and another - its a true reading. So im still in the dark. 17 days after first tingle still nothing beyond the tingling. freaking out as not young....my new partner of 7 months has been unfaithful. If i have i’m pretty certain he was aware, came back from overseas acting weird.  Previous partner was 33 years monogamous relationship.  Disclosure- what am I disclosing? Do I or dont I have it.  I wanted to do a PCR but no area to swab!
