Hi Terri. I purchased more questions. Yes, my IGG test results (included in first post) were 10/28/14 both negative.
So, I understand that the IGG test for HSV1 misses 1-2 out of 10 infections, what is the false negative rate on this test for HSV2?
We are interested in possibly doing the Western Blot test through your clinic. Is Colorado a state where this can be done? As I read in some of your other posted conversations some states are not possible. Also, where or how do I find out how much this may cost or can you tell me here? We will be paying out of pocket because our insurance is high deductible/catastrophic.
Also, I remember reading some of the other posts on this forum about people being on antiviral medications and that could mess up the IGG test results. This got me thinking. My husband and I both take a lot of natural herbs and supplements that could be considered somewhat antiviral. Could taking things like elderberry, echinacea, garlic, high doses of vitamin D, or other supplements skew the IGG test results? Also, if we can do the western blot test, could it be impacted by any of these types of things?
