    Confused about test results for HSV 1 and 2


    I'm confused about my test results for both HSV 1 and HSV 2. Here's the test history:

    igg test #1:
    October 25, 2013
    HSV 1 = negative
    HSV 2 index = 1.4 (positive)

    igg test#2:
    March 3, 2014
    HSV 1 = negative
    HSV 2 index = 1.2 (positive)
    Inhibition for HSV2 = 45% (negative)

    igg test#3:
    March 6, 2014
    HSV 2 index = 1.75

    Biokit USA test
    March 6, 2014
    Result = Negative

    Western Blot
    March 19, 2014
    HSV 1 = positive
    HSV 2 = indeterminate

    Doctor recommended to resubmit bloodwork for another western blot due to the indeterminate result so that they can do a paired study with my previous bloodwork.

    Anyone has any thoughts or experience with similar situation? I'm surprised about the previous negative results on HSV 1 and the recent positive. I have been dating someone with HSV 1 since February 2014 and wonder if I got it from her. But mostly concerned about HSV 2 status. I've never experienced symptoms for either HSV 1 or 2.
