Thanks Terri – I guess what I’m trying to ascertain is why are 30% of hsv1 blood tests false negatives?
Does the IgG score have anything to do with it or is it irrelevant in terms of false negatives?
I’m hoping the fact that my test results after 8 weeks being low and considerably below the threshold of 0.9 (that I believe determines a positive!?) means that me getting up to that mark in another 4 weeks be unlikely? Or as I say, does the IgG have no relevance to do with potential false negatives?
If I did have HSV1 do you think I would have had genital symptoms by now if I had oral symptoms after 4 days?
