What Does A Positive Ig G Test Mean
I had a positive non-typed culture that came back positive, and symptoms. But a negative non typed IGG test. What should I believe?
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
Had HSV2 IGG test at 5.00 My HSV2 IGM Negative. How can I have a positive and Negative? Is the 5 a high number? Never had an outbreak. Confused!
Previous infection: The test for herpes simplex virus is done by measuring antibodies (IgM & IgG) in the bloodstream. When the body is first infected by herpes it makes IgM to fight the infection. It then makes IgG to be ready to fight the germ if it attacks again and the IgM mostly goes away. Your tests imply you had herpes in the past but not right now. Mild infections may not be noticed but still show in the test. ...Read more
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
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

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?
Depends: Different labs have different levels of what "normal" is. In the lab I use, this value of 6 would be normal. ...Read more
I'm currently 25 years old. My rubella-igg test result is 390mm/iu. What does it mean, what should I do?
Nothing: Your rubella titer is positive...Indicating you have immunity to rubella and that is a good thing. ...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?
What does it mean when I have an index value of 20.9 for a herpes i, ii, and IgG test? Lab results
Old infection: I do not know the reference value of the lab that did the test but I assume this is higher than normal and is interpreted as reactive. It means at one point in your life, you have been exposed to both varieties of hepres -i generally responsible for 'cold sores' and ii, generally responsible for genital lesions. However with diverse sexual practicess, they are becoming more interchangeable. ...Read more
If you have trace levels of herpes antibodies on a IgG test, what does that mean? Does that mean you're infected with it? Can you transmit it?
Yes and yes: Igg antibodies are consistent with previous infection. Since your body never 'clears' the herpes virus once infected with it, one you have it, it is always present in your body (regardless of whether or not you have active symptoms.) you can transmit it. You are more likely to do so when you have an outbreak, but you are capable of transmitting even without active symptoms. ...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?
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
How long before having sex with an herpes infected partner can an IgG test come positive? 2 weeks or a month? Or more than a month
The herpes virus can occasionally be spread when there are no symptoms due to a phenomena known as viral shedding.
It is possible for a person to carry the herpes virus without knowing that they have it, in fact, up to 80% of people who are infected with hsv-2 show no signs of the infection. So it is possible for a person to unwittingly transmit the infection to their partner. ...Read more
? Igg for Cpx?: A past chickenpox infection should be evident if a sample is testes for chickenpox igg. As it becomes less common, a positive igg study is likely to be the new standard for proving you had it or got the vaccine and may be required for college entry, work, or other reasons. ...Read more
When I was pregnant I had the hsv 2 IgG Test. My number was barely over the. 90. Does this mean my exposure was recent? I have never had an outbreak
Distant exposure: I would think a low titer like that would be more indicative of an exposure in the distant past. The body follows the principle of 'use it or lose it' -so there's no need for it to react anymore to the virus. That makes sense too, since you can't recall having an outbreak. That's the tricky thing about HSV-2. It is well adapted to humans and indeed most people don't know they have it. Any more Qs? ...Read more
I am almost 9 weeks pregnant and one of the results was my rubella IgG test. It came back positive. Should I be worried? I don't know what to fee.
