Will recent HFM disease affect the result of hsv 2 igg test? Recently I got 2.7 in the test but I did not have high risk sexual behaviours.

No: If you have ever been exposed to HSV2 your body will mount a response. This response is what we look for in the blood test. HSV 2 does not cause symptoms in 90% of those who have it. STD's do not discriminate and are always possible, so testing before the onset of activity with a new partner is a MUST! Anyone, regardless of high risk behavior or not, can contract an STD so always use protection. ...Read more

I just had a HSV 2 IgG test at 3.1 months and it was negative. Does that mean I am negative for HSV 2 and do not have it?

I just had a HSV 2 IgG test at 3.1 months and it was negative. Does that mean I am negative for HSV 2 and do not have it?

Likely: Igg is a antibody that typically forms somewhere between 4-6 months following exposure, thus, you may want to consider repeating at 6 months. Did they test for igm as well? Did they perform a culture as well? ...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

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?

The IgG test for HSV-2 was positive for antibodies. My pediatrician said I was exposed. Does this also mean I'm infected, and potentially contagious?

Incomplete info: HSV 2 can either represent prior exposure to and experience with cold sores or genital herpes. The strain is not specific to one site or the other. You may know if you had signs of either and you could pass the germ during an outbreak with either (and maybe other times too). ...Read more

HSV 1+2 IgG Serum test result 1.77. any other test required for more details.

Unsure: What you describe is normal for someone who has had a past exposure to HSV 2 and has developed an antibody to that particular virus. When the IgG is elevated, it may indicate that the body is actively fighting that virus. This test is quite accurate for indicating past exposure to HSV 2. ...Read more

Negative for HSV2: This is similar to a similar question answered just yesterday, linked below. Your result is negative for herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV2), the usual cause of genital herpes. It says nothing about other STDs.
