As I understand it, if you take it several times it will be different each time. Its the way the tests works. Mine were back and forth within that range. If I take it again I could be higher or lower but I will be in the positive range.
That's interesting. When you say it was between those numbers, do you mean it climbed slowly, or went back and forth?
I'm curious because I had a second test and it came back lower than the first one. It went from 1.60 to 1.21 after 7 weeks.
The numbers don't really mean much except whether positive or negative. Ive had 4 tests within the last 18 months and all were between 1.3 and 1.6 for hsv1. Sometimes the low numbers can be false positive for hsv2 but false positives are less frequent on hsv1. Im like you. Im assuming I became positive in my early childhood as I've never had a breakout. I do think your body gets better at managing the virus as you get older. Ive even heard of some people seroconverting to a negative result on the test but they still have the virus.
