In general I would vote yes you do have H.  But a western blot may he worth it for you since you have high and then low results.

Why do some people take so long to show positive. See in this case it took him 22 months to test positive. 

@ind555 Did you have any exposure in between or did it take you 22 months to show positive from last exposure?. Thats a very long time. I thought igg was reliable @16 weeks. Damn!

Also he shows positive for both. I have read in terri warrens forum that showing positive for both might be a false positive and is quite unlikely as he was negative initially. I do think western blot would be good to be conclusive.

Yes you have it value doesn't define anything if yoh would get tested from three different lab you would get your value 'll be different.. if you want to get confirmed do test again after few week with thyrocare ...they do have western blot test ..it 'll help you to clear your doubt .

The hsv2 is prone to false positives when somehone as HSV1.  However those false positives are in the range of 1.1-3.5.  

This is obviously if the test was run perfectly.  There is always the possibility of human error in collection, preparation, transcribing and testing.  

The third result cats some doubt in having both.  I suspect he does have one. I would recommend the western blot due to the UPS and downs.

So what the logical you people are judging my results...so in a single protected encounter that I got hsv1 and 2 genetialy and without any outbreaks I had it..so am infected with 1 and 2 at same time

I said I can't tell.  It's very atypical to get that high of a positive than a questionable positive.  

I believe you likely have one or the other. Probably not both.  A western blot is designed for someone in you exact situation to bring clarity.

      Hi everyone  I have Ghsv1. 3 months I receive frequent outbreaks. There are no lesion redness, burning and itching as just a rash. I know that herpes trigger opportunistic infections. How do I know this mushroom or that herpes ?  Do you have frequent outbreaks is living Ghsv1? I feel alone

      I have been positive for about 8 months and I’ve generally been open to friends and family about my status. I’ve tried a brief stint with dating other H+ folks from Postive Singles and it hasn’t really worked out.  There’s this guy who works security at my gym and he’s been chatting me up a lot recently. I like him and I haven’t made any moves but I get the vibe he’s getting ready to ask me out. It sucks because he’s obviously interested and I would love to go out on a date with him.  I’ve never had to disclose to a new person before and I’m really really really dreading this. I’m dreading it to the point where Im wondering if I should turn him down if he does ask me. I hate this. You know I could handle the symptoms of herpes, the only thing that sucks about this thing is that it’s contagious. I have zero problem taking drugs everyday, but valtrex is so fucking inadequate with providing me any reassurance of reducing transmission.  I’m so frustrated. Just give me some better fucking drugs so I can feel confident again.

      Any advice on on how i can change the way she thinks of her insecurities in the event I ever see her again or hang out with her or do you guys think that it's better too just walk away. The truth is though i never met another girl like her before and she was fine with me having herpes i could tell by the she reacted too it . How do you change the way someone views them self that has low self esteem.

      Note @Asr624 that an IgM result does not confirm a herpes diagnosis. Was the rash swabbed as well?

      Yes it's entirely possible that he didn't know and just now gave it to you. I've been with my husband almost 19 years and he was recently tested and is still negative. It's still possible of course that I could give it to him at any point. Sounds like you have a strong marriage and there is no reason this needs to be an issue other than a minor annoyance. I have 2 healthy children and have had no related medical issues due to HSV.
