1) Okay so the follow up question here is, I’ve heard doctors say that if the antivirals would affect the results in my case it would almost definitely at least be in the indeterminate range if it was indeed positive and that a negative should mean a negative.
I think mathematically this should make sense for IgG at least because let’s say if it reduces 20% and you would have had a 1.6 result wiithout AV then u would have a 1.28 with AV for instance if it works like that. Obviously the numbers are rough estimates from average values in studies but I assume that’s how it would work? Meaning a negative with AV should at worst be able to go to low indeterminate range positive 1.0-2.0 value on an IgG.
So in my WB I had indeterminate HSV1 and negative HSV2. Is it safe to assume that the there is a good chance the HSV1 would have been positive without long term therapy of AVs but the HSV2 almost entirely certainly not?
