HSV 2 : A positive igg antibody test (what you had) for hsv means you have antibodies from a previous infection--not necessarily a current one. Treatment depends on how often you break out--if you don't break out often, you may not need anything. There is no permanent treatment to rid yourself of the virus. Your doc can give you the best advice. ...Read more

I got a 1.07 for a HSV 2 IgG test. I was positive for HSV 1. What should I do next? Do I have herpes?

I got a 1.07 for a HSV 2 IgG test. I was positive for HSV 1. What should I do next? Do I have herpes?

Reference range: Is the value 1.07 higher than the normal range for the lab that did the test? If yes, you are infected with HSV 2. Herpes viruses,both HSV 1 and 2, live in the nerve endings forever and a person can pass it on to others even if there are no visible lesions. You may wish to consult an infectious disease specialist for proper diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

I tested positive for hsv 2 with 3.1 igg but negative for hsv 1 The weird thing is when I was pregnant I was tested and didn't have hsv 2 but had hsv?

I tested positive for hsv 2 with 3.1 igg but negative for hsv 1 
The weird thing is when I was pregnant I was tested and didn't have hsv 2 but had hsv?

HSV2, prob not HSV1: Probably you meant positive for HSV1 when pregnant, right? Was that a blood test or swab test from a genital lesion? The blood test is less reliable for HSV1 than HSV2. Or maybe lab reporting error and you really had HSV2. At present, you can be quite sure you have HSV2 (almost certainly genital). But speak with your doctor about confirmatory testing, ideally with a Western blot test. Good luck! ...Read more

Is there any facility to confirm HSV 2 in india like glycoprotin test i got ELISA negtiv 2times and once IgG positiv please tell me laboratry name plz?

HSV 2: You cannot differentiate between hsv types 1 and 2 using antibody testing because of the high frequency of cross-reactivity. The only sure way to do this is to isolate the virus from active lesions and test the virus for serotypes. This is fairly sophisticated, but imagine most large medical schools in india may have a lab that can do this. ...Read more

If HSV 2 is negative does this mean that both IgG and IgM are negative?

If HSV 2 is negative does this mean that both IgG and IgM are negative?

Testing for Herpes: Nope. These specific antibodies must be specified. Most screening tests just test for igg. But, if the doctor suspects a recent exposure the igm antibody can be added to this testing. ...Read more

I tested positive on HSV 1 IgG type spec 31.90 and negative on HSV 2 IgG is this bad?

No: Not really good or bad--nearly all adults have positive antibodies to herpes (HSV) and most of that is HSV 1--this is the virus that causes oral cold sores mostly, though can cause genital lesions. HSV 2 usually causes genital herpes--lesions in the genital area--but can cause oral herpes too. Being negative for HSV 2 just means you've never had that type of herpes. \. ...Read more

High level on hsv 1 igg test. 49.90. No clue how. Been with the same woman for 12 years. Hsv 2 negative. Please explain this high level?

HSV 1 vs HSV2: your findings indicate exposure to HSV1 virus and development of antibodies against, it is the one reponsible for the facial and oral infection occuring in chilhood, or less commonly in adults, at times referred to as 'cold sores'. HSV2 is mainly sexually transmitted, which isn't the case with you ...Read more

On August 1, 2016 I tested 1.94 for HSV 1 IgG and 21.70 for HSV 2 IgG. What does it mean? Am I hi positive with HSV2? Should sex be totally avoided?

On August 1, 2016 I tested 1.94 for HSV 1 IgG and 21.70 for HSV 2 IgG.  What does it mean? Am I hi positive with HSV2? Should sex be totally avoided?

Protection: The above results tell you that you have been infected with both and currently have some protection against both. It does not tell you whether you have an active infection or not (IgM would be a better indicator) and thus you cannot rule out transmitting HSV2 during sex even in the absence of an active lesion. Best to use condom and to inform your partner about your HSV2 ...Read more

Genital herpes: Your test results show you are infected with HSV2. That means you have genital herpes, even if you haven't had any obvious outbreaks of genital blisters, sores, etc. See your doctor and discuss antiviral treatment (e.g. valacyclovir) to help prevent transmitting it to partners. You need to always inform sex partners you have it, and use condoms consistently to also reduce chance of infecting them. ...Read more

I'm very confused. I was just diagnose with hsv 1 IGG 1.29 and hsv 2 IGG 2.86. Don't have and outbreaks and girlfriend is negative. Can this b false?


I'm very confused. I was just  diagnose with hsv 1 IGG 1.29 and hsv 2 IGG 2.86. Don't have and outbreaks and girlfriend is negative. Can this b false?

Probably have HSV2: You probably have HSV1, but so do almost half of all adults, usually no big deal. Probably also have HSV2 (i.e. genital herpes) but maybe not. 1.1 is technically positive for HSV2, but most infected people have results over 3.0. Since 2.86 is close to that, most likely it's real. Genital herpes often causes no symptoms but still sexually transmissible. See an STD or infectious diseases specialist. ...Read more

Question about hsv-1 or hsv-2 IgG antibody detection; can  it tell you which part of the body the HSV is in?

Not really: The lines separating these two types are really kind of blurred. Particularly, when it comes to treatment, the discussion is not all that relevant. It is thought that the virus lays dormant in the dorsal root ganglia of the spinal column. ...Read more
