The IgM and IgG are looking for completely different things. Your friend is correct – the IgM is very unreliable and should be ignored as an indicator of HSV infection
Your HSV 1 IgG is very high and your HSV 2 is a very low positive. Sometimes we see something known as cross reactivity between the HSV 1 and HSV 2 tests. It is possible of course that it is a true positive but you need to know for certain so you can make appropriate adjustments if you are truly positive. The only test that I consider reliable at this point is the herpes western blot. In the US, it is done only at the University of Washington. There are two ways currently to obtain the test. You can google herpes western blot UW and get the number and order a test kit to be sent to you and you can ask your health care provider to draw your blood spin it down and have the serum sent back to UW. Also, you can become a phone patients of our clinic and we will order the test to be drawn at a lab near where you live and sent back to the UW and will be give you the results. You DEFINITELY need a confirmatory test.
