    Confused about test results

    HSV2 igG 2.75
    negative <0.91
    Equivocal 0.91-1.09
    positive >1.09

    Doctor says I am positive for HSV2

    Explanation beneath numbers states confusing information:

    Negative indicates no antibodies detected to HSV-2
    Equivocal may suggest early infection
    Positive indicates antibodies detected to HSV-2.

    So do I have it and if so is it saying it is a new infection or recent one? I was married for 20 years and never had any signs of infection or outbreak at any time. Been divorced for less than a year and been with one person recently so its one of two people I got it from. Just really confused

    "Technically" the 2.75 indicates positve but most doctors will recommend retesting in a few months if the result is below 3.50. Did they also do any kind of culture swab along with the blood test?
    HSV-2 positive. Found out 9-27-07. Flu-like symptom 6-7-07.
    Year one outbreaks Sep Oct Nov Dec Apr Jun. Ugh.
    Year two outbreaks Dec Apr/May

    Hi truthseeker,

    From the rating would it ever be possible to determine how long the infect has been present?

    Thank you
