Herpes?: Many infections behave this way, but I assume you're talking about herpes. Oral or genital? Positive HSV culture is rarely false, but it takes a few weeks for blood (IgG) test to turn positive, so probably a new infection. Insist the lab test the culture for virus type, if they haven't discarded it. Or repeat IgG test in a few weeks; probably it will be positive for HSV1 or HSV2. Good luck. ...Read more

You have Herpes: There should be two results for the igg one for type one and one for type two. But having positive results for herpes for either or both viruses means you have been exposed sometime in the remote past and that the results do not represent a new infection. ...Read more

What does a 9.9 on a herpes IGG test mean? That number is higher than other results posted in forums so I wanted to see if that is a normal result.

What does a 9.9 on a herpes IGG test mean? That number is higher than other results posted in forums so I wanted to see if that is a normal result.

Depends on test: There are several HSV IgG antibody tests, with different numbers for positive results. The most common is HerpeSelect®, for which 9.9 is strongly positive. For other tests this may be negative. If you have the lab report, it should show numbers for negative, indeterminate, and positive, separately for HSV1 and HSV2. Or contact and discuss with the doctor or lab where test was done. Good luck! ...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 had protected sex with my partner he has herpes no signs nor symptom. I did an IgG test few weeks after tested positive for hsv1&2 how is that?

Herpes: This means in 100% certainty that you were exposed to herpes prior to this exposure from your partner. Herpes infections do not necessarily have to be on the penis or in the vagina. Thus condoms do not protect against the skin to skin transmission of the herpes virus. But, to have igg antibodies you have to have been exposed months before at least. ...Read more
