Just saw my pcp about STD test results. My HSV 1&2 IgG results were pos, but the HSV 1&2 IgM results were neg. No symptoms at all. Am I contagious?
Probably yes. Positive IgG blood test means infection with HSV, so you should assume you have both HSV1 (probably oral) and HSV2 (genital). However, the reliability of a positive HSV2 test depends on its numerical value. If you had Focus HerpeSelect (the most common test), 1.1-3.4 is technically pos but only 3.5+ is definite. For more advice, ask a new question including test name & the numbers for both types.
HSV 1 & 2. Igg being positive denotes a past infection while the negative igm means that you do not have a current/most recent infection. You should not be contagious currently. To prove that you are not shedding the virus, have a pcr test done.
