From the looks of the test. I’m <0.91 which is in range for negative on both Hsv 1&2 

but that is the Ratio number that I see on here??

Yes it is a ratio. At the end of every testing set of wells is the control well. This has the control antibody solution added instead of blood.

The colour density of your well is expressed as a ratio to the control well. 

A negative result means no antibodies were detected, the value  is usually a minimum reflecting the slight ‘staining’ of the antigen that occurs in every test.

The doctor never called me back... I’m just looking at my results online my results we <0.91 which was neg for 1 and 2 but my ratio was 0.93 which was out of range... since my partner tested positive... does that mean i tested to soon and im on my way to postive?? Does that number drop or go up if i retest in a few weeks??

Im I ok and need to relax and breathe???

@Lisa21 it is important to be very clear on the results for you and your partner.

What were is actual results for IgG HSV-1 and HSV-2 as well as yours? Do you have those four numbers?

Hey @Lisa21 you can ignore the IgM result which doesn’t shed any light. You are negative for HSV 1/2.

No sex until he puts the numbers on the table! ;)

@Lisa21 I hope that’s not on account of herpes. What if he’s been told his IgM means his positive when that isn’t the case?!?

Pretty likely here he just has an oral HSV-1 infection.

They did the blood work without him requesting it that sounds odd normally they don't test for hsv without a request. Nonetheless, sounds like u had a close call I would still retest later on just to be completely sure.

That's what I was thinking. However, I am not always right. Therefore, I try to be optimistic about any situation good luck I'm sure it will end up working out

<0.91 is not negative, it is suspicious.

negative IgG is a till 0.7, between 0.7 and 0.9 it is suspicious, and higher than 0.9 is a positive. You are right at the edge.

You should give a PCR test from the lesions on your OBs. it is a definite test.

This is incorrect. <0.91 means exactly that, negative. In most cases it means a complete absence of antibodies.

Up to 1.1 is equivocal. If Focus diagnostics had the chance again, they’d probably set the positive level to something like 3 a The ‘edge’.

@Fred Ins <0.91 is NOT my number that’s the scale reading. It’s stating im within the <0.91 range.

@Surprise yes this is very tricky, basically testing now has made me even more wery cause now i have to go back and retest.

Dear Lisa, please provide correct number. Of it is less than 0.7, you dont have a HSV antibodies in your blood. 0.7 - 0.9 is a "suspicion area"

It depends on the ranges for the manufacturers test. For Focus Diagnostics Herpeselect for example, 0.7 to 0.9 is not a suspicious area at all, its negative.

No you aren’t borderline, <0.91 means negative conclusively, the value is probably of the order of 0.2.

This guy may not even have herpes.

      How long after you had sex with this woman did you exhibit symptoms? What makes you think she has herpes?
    • hobson
      Hi she got the cold sore a couple days ago after oral . Always use a condom. She isn’t got herpes as far as I’m aware but she got a cold after she performed oral on me . She sent me a pic of the cold sores.  I don’t know why they didn’t do blood tests. I have read a PCR test is accurate. I don’t know how to get closure from this. 
    • nakedandafraid
      Im no admin, but ive seen many folks share photos looking for info. I think its ok.  If I may ask, how long after having sex with this woman did the symptoms appear?  Ive heard that pc swabs are pretty accurate.. Did this woman tell you she has herpes, or did you hear it through a third party?  I dont see why they wouldnt give you the iGg / iGm blood test. If im not mistaken, you can order one yourself and go to a local Quest/Labcorp (depending on where you live)  i assume the cold sores are on her mouth? Did you see them, or did she tell you about them?   
    • WilsoInAus
      Hey @K1009 that all sounds a typical experience of transmission between partners. Please take heart, after the first few months, many people experience extremely few outbreaks of any with gHSV-1. Also you cannot feasibly give this back to your partner, you are now concordant sexually in terms of HSV and your immune systems will protect you from further infection.
