In brief: Immunoglobulins

Igg means you have been exposed.
Igm means recent infection. Herpes is a difficult virus because you can spread it with out having symptoms.

In brief: You can

If you carry herpes with a positive igg, you can infect others, especially if you have active sores at the time.
Negative igg would mean no past exposure.
