      I tend to agree...having been in a couple vaccine trials, I know first hand these experimental things can sometimes make things even worse...id say vaccines are relatively benign compared to some possibilities with crispr...I'm gonna wait till this is more proven. I'd rather spend 500 a month on amenalief than be a guinea pig again at this point.

      Thank you for responding Cas9 I truly appreciate it! I will definitely take your advice!I believe I'm doing myself more harm than good at the moment.My next igg is in 2 days so in the meantime i will try my best to focus on my health and easing my anxiety and stress.Will post an update no matter the outcome.

      If I were you, I wouldn't touch this DIY CRISPR with a ten foot pole. Terrible idea IMO.

      I concur with your doctors. Simply igg test at 12 weeks (or 16 if you prefer). If the hsv2 results come back negative, then you don't have hsv2. That should relieve your "herpes" anxiety. And of course  the other STD tests came back negative. Also, leave your ass alone and give it a chance to heal. And eat foods that don't aggravate that area when passing stool. If the issues persist then you'll need to talk to your doctors of course but it doesn't sound like any STD issues based on your test results. In the meantime, rest easy and pamper yourself; Being overly stressed about the issue is half your battle.

      Do we know a contact for a lab that does this? I am less concerned with it not working since all you would have lost is money which is not a big deal and more with it potentially fucking up some DNA somewhere and something more serious coming out of this.  Thanks again! @Kurdt01 @Sean123

Two low positives

Recommended Posts

Steve274

I took a 10 panel STD test in April through STDcheck.com that came back positive for HSV1 and HSV2.  I have had cold sores since I was a child, but have never had a genital outbreak of any kind. My HSV1 Igg was 45.02 my HSV2 Igg was 1.49.  For this test greater than 1.09 is considered positive.  The doctor advised to retest.  I just retested for HSV2 in August and it came back positive with an Igg of 2.43.   Does this confirm HSV2?  Could two low positives mean a false positive?  Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Yes those are considered to be low positives and the best confirmation would be the western blot. Some people just have the protein to trip the test causing low pos scores like this. Or it could be some cross reaction going on. What made you want to test? When was your last sexual activity of concern?

My last sexual activity of concern was in February, which is also why I tested.  How can I get the western blot test?

That's the link to Terri Warren she's a nurse who specializes in this field for 30 plus years. You can also call the university of Washington and they'll send you a kit for the blot. Your doc can sign it or Terri Warren herself. The good news is there's a big chance this is a false positive because in a couple month span those numbers should of tripled passed the 3.5 mark.

That's very weird the march and may test are above the false pos range. The June July are set low and are in the range of false pos. Are you sure it was IgG in March. Find out what kind of test they used. In the u.s the testing values may be a lil diff. I'll let someone else chime in as I don't want to be wrong here.
