This does not help me understand your overall sexual history.
I am not going to say that you do or do not have it without a western blot because your index value is in the low positive range and needs confirmation. If you have that many people telling you different things about whether you have herpes or not, you should likely settle on one source of information and go with it or you will be confused for a long time. The variation between those two index values is not huge. It is well within the normal range of variation in test results.
Glad you arranged to get a western blot.
