No: If positive, it will be followed up with a confirmatory test. If negative, you are almost certainly okay but if you are very worried you might be able to pay for a pcr assay, which is the gold standard. ...Read more

Lab Error: I would chalk this up to lab error, but in my patients we do not leave it there. There is a much better and more valid test to be done called a western blot test for herpes. This definitive test should have already been offered to you so that you can know for a fact whether you have herpes or not. ...Read more

2009- ELISA HIV test- positive, western blot- neg. 2010-oraquick negative. 2014- elisa-indeterminate wb- neg. Low risk for hiv. Could I have lupus?
Not a test for lupus: The HIV test is not a test for lupus. What's clear is that you don't have hiv. You'll never know why your elisa was positive and then indeterminate, and it's not worth investigating. False positive elisas are not uncommon; that's why they have to be confirmed with western blot. ...Read more

Had EBV test came back EBV nuc IgG ser qi eia positive and EBV vac IgG eia postive. Ebv capsid IgM eia negative. I'm so tired what do this mean?
Makes perfect sense: Igm antibodies rise only during the actual, acute infection. They then fade away and are replaced by the various igg antibodies, which are the ones that provide lifetime protection against the same strain of the virus. So your numbers are consistent with the fact you had mono years ago. There is no igm, and positive igg levels. So you are immune and do not currently have mono. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Then it's not Lyme: Lyme disease can be tricky -and you want to make sure you see someone like an Infectious Diseases doctor who knows how to treat it. The diagnosis is actually based on clinical findings, and the lab testing is generally 'supportive'. Since you're Western blot is negative, then it's very unlikely you have Lyme. There are other diseases that could cause 'Lyme-like' symptoms -and good to get evaluated ...Read more

Need details: A single nucleic acid test after the interval during which this becomes positive is proof enough that you are not infected. You're young. I trust you'll play safe from now on, and if you continue to have obsessive thoughts that you have become infected, sit down with your physician or someone who's trained in helping you get back into control of these unwanted and unhelpful thoughts. ...Read more

How accurate are negative herpes blood IgG test results after 3 months? My obgyn said I should be fine but i want to make sure i really am negative
Herpes Testing: Your OB is 90% right. You can, if you worry get the igm test and that would be likely to be 100 right at this point. ...Read more
How accurate are negative herpes blood IgG test results after 3 months? My obgyn said I should be fine but i want to make sure i really am negative.
Herpes simplex: It would be surprising to see many people negative for herpes serology in this day and age. If it is, great. But even if it were positive that is no guarantee that you will ever get active lesions. Despite their absence, however, if you do have herpes in your body you may excrete the virus and infect others. Good luck. This is complicated. ...Read more
Diagnosed with herpes in 5/2012. I got the IgG test done 5 months later 10/2012. It came back negative. What does this mean? Is there a better test?
I have had 3 negative IGG herpes tests. 1st at 8 weeks after contact, 2nd at 12 weeks, and 3rd at 10 months. How accurate are the results?
My test is positive for herpes 1 and negative for herpes 2 (all igg) but also positive IgM herpes too. Would you say I have type 1 or 2 ?

Does a negative IgM test for herpes mean i dont have herpes. I performed the test after 2 months of exposure both negative for IgM and igg.
Do i infect other if i tested for herpes blood test IgG positive 158 and IgM negative 0.08 ? And what negative IgG means ? Thank you
I had herpes blood test 1&2 IgG positive 158 IgM negative 0.08 they told me i don't have herpes are they correct ? Im so confused please help me
Yes: They are correct. Igm tells us if you have an acute or active infection. This was negative, so you do not. The igg tells us you have previously been exposed or infected. This was positive, so you have. ...Read more
Neg. Igm for herpes 1and 2. Positive IgG for herpes 1 and neg.2. I have blisters but culture came back neg. Who do I believe? What is a good test
No acute infection!: Good morning, negative igm and negative culture suggest that there is no acute infection. Positive igg shows that you have had past infection. Both tests agree in your case. There is another test polymerase chain reaction (pcr) which has been widely used recently. Tzanck smear shows the presence of herpes virus also. Rarely, more than one test is ordered by your physician - it could be expensive. ...Read more
Blood test results say herpes ab type 1 iGg: 0.10 and herpes type 2 igg: 0.23 if I'm negative why aren't the numbers 0 why are they 0.10 and 0.23?
Herpes 1 & 2 tests (IgG & IgM) at 18, 24 & 32 days post exposure, all negative, keep testing? Brief penis to penis rubbing, partner status unknown.
No: I don't know if additional blood work testing is going to be beneficial at this point. Any sores/discharge should be cultured. Additionally, intimate contact should be avoided if such sores and/or discharge is present. ...Read more
I had possible Herpes 2 exposure, no lesions & took IgM and IgG blood tests 2 weeks after the incident. Both were negative. Did I test too early? It is now 32 days post exposure, still no lesions. Do I need to retest?
Herpes I or II: Testing with IgM and IgG "two weeks after possible exposure" with "negative results" may be a bit too early to detect antibody production against H I or H II. Test again after another month to be certain. Herpes virus is often present even with no visible sores in the mouth or genital areas, so transmission is possible. ...Read more
Is the herpeselect IGG blood test conclusive after 3 months of sexual encounter? Is a negative blood test reliable?Should another blood test be taken at 6 months post encounter to be extra sure? I tested negative for both types of herpes at 3 months.
If you were: Tested because of suspicious lesions you should have a follow up test. If your sexual partner is positive for HSV you are at risk of contracting the virus with each encounter. Many partners go years without becoming positve. Antiviral medication prophylaxis for the infected partner reduces the negative partners risk but not to zero. Condoms also reduce risk. Be healthy- your immune system is impt. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Herpes test 1 igg antibody ..results 39.9 ! What could this mean? I am very concerned! H erpes 2 igm negative.
Herpes testing: Without knowing why you were tested it is hard to interpret a lab test without clinical context. 90% of people will test positive for a HSV 1 antibody test. This indicates past exposure. Your HSV 1 test indicates a past exposure. A negative HSV 2 Ig M indicates that you have not recently been exposed to HSV 2. This is an odd test to have done but perhaps your doctor had a reason for doing it. ...Read more
I had an exposure a year before , i took HSV 1 & 2 IGG and IGM AB test last week, Both came back with negative , am i free for Herpes?
I was clinical diagnosed with herpes. I tested negative for hsv 1 and 2 at 9 12 and20 weeks igG herpeselect. Are my blood test conclusive?
Herpes I and II: It is possible for Herpes I and II to be temporarily dormant, so IgG testing may not detect actual infection. Under stressful conditions, either type of Herpes may become active and therefore testable via IgG testing, so it is not 100% conclusive that Herpes is not present by IgG testing at intervals. It is also possible that you did not have Herpes when "clinically diagnosed". ...Read more
Can IgM test be inaccurate & give false results especially when i tested negative for IgG herpes? Whats the best test for hsv? Help please please
HSV: Hsv is often a clinical diagnosis. Igm is the antibody produced earliest in a viral infection so if this was positive, then it means an acute infection. Igg is produced later in the infection and/or after infection has cleared. Igg will probably turn positive at a later time, but treating the hsv with an oral anti-viral is most important, not the igm/igg results. ...Read more
