The only reason I want to take the ELISA again is to see if my antibody count increases. If it goes up over 3 then I’m going to assume I probably have HSV2, though I will do the WB regardless. If it stays at the exact same level, at least that indicates I am either just a “low positive” positive person, or it’s a false low positive. Does that make sense? I would assume the count would go up if the infection was relatively recent and I was still creating antibodies.
I will look into the BioKit testing and hope for the best. Do you know of any clinics in Houston that do offer the BioKit? I would prefer to go to a clinic I can just walk into and take the test, rather than having to go through a doctor.
Also, I’m assuming this is the article you were referring to (for future readers’ reference): http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1276011/
