I tested positive for IGG for Herpes type 2. My antibody level has fluctuated for HSV 2, first it was 6.40, when I tested a month later it was 2.40. The inhibition panel was completed by quest diagnostics, it was positive. I eventually plan to get the blot to confirm the type 2. My initial outbreak of Type 1 GSHV was cultured and confirmed through swab in 2008. I’m just curious if I sleep with an individual who has the symptomatic presentation of type 1 or 2 genitally if I could become symptomatic for either type when I haven’t been symptomatic for 15 years. I am just trying to gauge if I could suddenly start getting outbreaks if I sleep with other HSV positive individuals or if it’s more likely I’ll remain asymptomatic. I know genital to genital is super rare transmission wise for GSHV 1 and that the shedding rates are lower for asymptomatic individuals of both types. I have an extensive amount of antibody protection because of having GSHV 1 for 15 years now. My IGG level for type 1 is 34.6. I have had oral hsv 1 since I was a child, I only manifested physical symptoms genitally once in 2008. I wasn’t aware I even had type 2 until a few months ago. Never had a positive swab or an outbreak that was HSV 2. Not even sure if I have type 2 genitally or orally at this point. My last test was in the false positive range so I know the blot will be in my future when I’m in a better place financially to do so. I just am scared of exposing myself to others with HSV 2 who are symptomatic since I do not get symptoms, I don’t want to start getting them if I can prevent that it possible. Any advice? I know that my shedding rates are lower due to being asymptomatic and that I am more likely to remain asymptomatic because I had the protective antibodies from type 1 for a substantial time before I even contracted type 2. We’ve spoken before, I’ve consulted with you on video in regard to acquiring the Western Blot and we’ve corresponded over email previously.
