I’m really sorry, I mistyped my HSV-2 IgG result. As you can imagine there’s a lot going through my head. The HSV-2 IgG was 2.36 and not 2.41. It’s lower but by just a bit. I’m not sure how much of a difference it makes but I wanted to make sure you had the right numbers.
It had crept into my mind that based on the result and the timing that I could have contracted it from her, yes. It’d be surprising but I guess you don’t really know unless you’ve talked about it with that person, and we haven’t.
Yes I was treated for urethritis and tested positive for HSV-2. All the other STI tests, chlamydia, gono, hepatitis, HIV, were all negative.
I haven’t had sex with anyone other than her over the past six weeks.
Prior to her it had been 14 months, while using a condom with someone I had been with a few times over a couple years. I believe all of those interactions, except oral sex, involved condoms.
Since it looks like I should get the WB, what’s the best way to go about that. I don’t have a PCP and haven’t since I saw my pediatrician. Would a Patient First type facility be able to collect the sample and send it away? Or do I need to work with a PCP?
What could cause that level of that particular antibody?
Thank you for the sense of hope and information.
