• How accurate are ‘Herpes Simplex Type 1/2 DNA – Urine sample
Are you in the US? I think urine testing for HSV is clearly not the gold standard and I am unfamiliar with its sensitivity or specificity.
• Could my HSV-1+ number be a new infection? Would it be this high after 12 weeks?
yes, it could be this high after 12 weeks – a shame that it wasn’t done at the beginning as a baseline – then you could know more about the timing of the infection
• Do the UTI symptoms add up to GHSV-1?
Not at all. HSV 1 in the genital area is a quiet infection and not often active. You describe months of ongoing symptoms – I don’t think they are due to HSV 1.
• If I IgG at 16 weeks and the number stays the same, is it safe to assume I’ve had this for a while? If it goes up at the next test, is it new?
After 12 weeks, any change in the IgG is not significant,no.
