My response wasn’t clear, I have not had unprotected sex since the high HSV-2 result that I received this week, only between that result and the previous one in October 2022 that showed no HSV-2.
Is it possible that the viral illness I experienced (presumably Mono) and/or the medications I mentioned could trigger an erroneously high HSV-2 IGG value? The partners I’ve been with since October were tested and negative for HSV-2. I am planning to do the Western Blot, but would like a glimmer of hope before I receive the results if possible.
