I seriously doubt that these symptoms represent HSV 2, but several months of unprotected sex with someone infected with HSV 2 does present some risk. Ignore the positive IgM and count on the negative IgG results with 92% certainty. HSV does not present with daily symptoms. Herpes also does not cause any odor.
Both labs have problems with false positive results on the IgG test. I am reluctant to advise that you test again, due to this concern. If you really can’t believe the negatives you’ve gotten, do the western blot for greatest certainty
