Thanks, Terri. Are you saying you’ve never heard of a total IgG score, or just that you’re not sure what my total IgG score could mean? My doctor just said that it tests for all members of the Herpes family, and that it was picking up something that was neither 1 nor 2, and that I shouldn’t be concerned about it.
Finally, the last time we did have intercourse was approximately 2 weeks before the blood was drawn, with her on medication, and me wearing protection. Do you recommend I have one more igG test 3 months from now to be 100% sure, or do you think with the results I just got after being in the relationship for 9 years is sufficient? If it helps, my doctor also told me that the IgM also came back negative on Type 1 and Type 2, so although I know the IgM test is not reliable, that would seem to support no recent infection, and thus I’m wondering with all of these results combined, if I’m good to go, or if I should do one final test after 3 months.
This is a great service that you’re offering – thank you for making yourself available for questions like this. When I married my wife, I honestly thought whether or not I contracted it would matter since I would only be with her, so its a relief to be able to speak to someone who can confidently speak to the results.
