HSV results pls help

Recommended Posts

Hi all 

new to this forum. I decided to have a herpes test as it is not usually covered in full STI tests. Wish I hadn’t bothered! 
So my results were 

hsv igg 1.   0.161 

hsv igg 2.   1.5  detected

as I have never had any sign of herpes lesions I was then told it is likely a false positive

has anyone else had this? 
It would have been 6 months ago I was exposed to hsv2 if I was positive 

it is so confusing as it could be just an autoimmune response but I don’t actually have it.

Hey @Mel21 chances are quite high that this is a false positive. They may not caused be your immune system necessarily, but by proteins unrelated to to HSV antibodies to at happen to stick to the testing wells. For many people they dissipate as measured by a test in a few weeks time, but you need to give time for the dissipation.
