Question postive and negative test

i recently took a blood test and the Dr told me I have herpes, that i just came in contact with it. The person I had sex with also took a test, I have not seen his test yet, but if his test are postive does that mean he had herpes for awhile

Re: postive and negative test

It is hard to tell unless his numbers are high on the test and yours are low. Do you know which test you had done and what your numeric values are?

Here is a copy of my test. i have not got his test yet.

HEPATITIS C ANTXSOOY
SIGNAL TO CUT-OFF in range non -reactice 0.04 reference range non reactive <1.00
HSV 1/2 IGG, HERPES£LECT

HSV 1 lOG TYPE SPECIFIC
~ Aa
HSV 2 IGG TYPE SPECIFIC
AB <0.90
Index Interpretation
<0.90 Negative
0.90-1.10 Equivocal
>1.l0 Positive
This assay ia type specific and will differentiate
beeween HSV·l and HSV-2 infections. A single positive
result only indicates previous immunologic exposure
and the level of antibody response may not be used
to determine active infection or disease stage. The
test should be repeated in 4-6 weeks when negative oxequivocal
results are obtained in suspected early
herpes simplex disease.

The performance of this assay has not been established
for pediatric POPulations, for neonatal screening, or
for the testing of immunocompromised patients.
DIV AB, HIV 1/2, EtA,
WITH REFLEXES
HIV ~/2 EIA AS SCREEN NON-REACTIVE Reference range non- reactive
A Nonreactive HIV-l/2 antibody result does not
exclude HIV infection since the time frame for
seroconversion is variable. If acute HIV infection is
suspected, antibody retesting and nucleic acid
amplification (HIV DNA/RNA) testing is recommended.
RPR (MONITOR)

INTERPRETIVg CRrTERIA:
<1:20
> or = 1:20
Antibody Not Detected
Antibody Detected
The IFA procedure for measuring 19M antibodies to
HSV 1 and HSV 2 detects both type~common and typespecific
HSV antibodies. Thus, elevated titers to
both HSV 1 and HSV 2 may represent crossreactive
HSV antiDoaies rather than exposure to both HSV 1
and HSV 2.

Re: copy of test

Hi,
I am sorry all of that was a little confusing although it didn't look like there were numerical values for the IgG.. but the IgM is where the positive was? If it was positive in the IgM I would ask the doctor for the IgG herpes type specific or ask what the values of that was when tested. I say this because the IgM is a test that should not be used to figure out if someone has herpes because it can detect if you have had chickpox in the past sometimes so resulting in inaccurate results. Sorry i couldn't be more help.
