Hey @Fernie hope you are going well.
The doctor is spot on here. Many people with HSV-1 end up with slightly elevated results for HSV-2 that does not indicate infection with HSV-2. This persists from test to test for some people.
The Westernblot would be useful to you, but will just confirm what is being said to you. Most people actually with HSV-2 test above 3.5 on those sorts of tests.
Just got off the phone with a doctor and they said based off the history of my tests, it’s most likely a false positive.
they also said that because I have hsv1 that that could be causing the false positive
I’m so confused and don’t know what to do.
Sorry for posting here so much but I’m just lost.
I’ve tested normal on these dates 7/14/2020 0.72 IGG , 10/28/2020 0.89 IGG.
Then I tested low positive 6/6/2021 1.11 IGG.
I went back after that test to confirm the abnormal results on 7/29/2021 0.78 IGG were the results which led me to believe that the first abnormal results were just wrong.
Fast forward to now I just got my results back this morning from 11/27/2021 1.17 IGG, were the results. I’m just so confused, don’t know what to do. I’m going to have a consultation over the phone with a physician today and I also reached out to Terri from Westover Heights.
At this point I’m considering a western blot and I’m so paranoid I also signed up for another full panel std testing. I’m just so confused and stressed out.
Hope my buddy @WilsoInAus sees this
