I initially tested positive in 2019 after having been with a partner (female) for more than a year who was HSV2 positive but asymptomatic, when I noticed a very small lesion, which turned out to be my first and so-far only outbreak.
This past November I had a screening done as part of an overall health assessment, which came back with an IGG value of 1.61, with positive “supplemental” testing. Then less than a month ago I tested again (in context of conversations with a new partner) and tested positive with IGG value 1.15.
So no, I have not done a western blot test. Would there be any value in that at this point? Does the change in IGG numbers likely mean anything?
