Did you ask the partner why they asked you that?
And let me be clear – your HSV 2 was 5.68 at labcorp, correct? You could do their confirmatory test but I don’t trust it – too many false positives compared to negative western blots.
I’m not clear why you are concerned about false negatives – you have a positive?
You would not have an index value of 5.68 four days after being infected. If you are infected, it wasn’t from him. I think with that index value you could probably do the blot now. Lets get a better test done.
