Received a 1.0 result on HSV2 IgG test, no lesions, also diagnosed with ureaplasma, BV and yeast infection. Is getting retested for HSV2 a good idea?

In brief: Probably not herpes

With the most common HSV2 IgG blood test (HerpeSelect®), a result of 1.
0 is borderline, and most borderline results really are negative. Only results of 3.5 and higher are definitely positive. It has nothing to do with BV, yeast, or ureaplasma. No need for another test if no herpes symptoms. By the way, ureaplasma is normal in the genital tract; a positive result doesn't mean anything.
