    HSV2 Positive then Negative

    I had a test done, it was a complete STD screening and my results came back positive for HSV2 with a titer at 1.5. I waited about a month or two and went to Planned Parenthood and took another test, this time specific to HSV2, the test was an IgG and that one came back negative. Which one should I go off of? I heard that any titer from 1.1 to 3.5 could possibly be a false positive. I also did hear that when you are doing a full screening the likely hood of false positives are even more possible. Can someone tell me there thoughts?

    Re: HSV2 Positive then Negative

    Unfortunately I am not too sure about titer. I know the IgM test should not be done and that the IgG is the most reliable. I haven't heard of there being false positive because a full line of testing is being done. The only thing I can suggest is maybe just getting another Herpes IgG type specific blood test in a few months and see what happens.
