So I got the actual test results and it was as follows:
HSV 1 and 2-Spec AB, IgG w/RFX (164922)
HSV 1 IgG Type Spec <0.91 index – Negative no antibodies
HSV 2 IgG Type Spec [H] 12.20 index
I still haven’t had an OB and I have no idea when I even got it. I’m still skeptical about it but I have begun to accept the diagnosis.
I wasn’t born in the US and immigrated to the US in 2009. I’ve read that you have seen some false positives on asymptomatic people with high index value.
I talked to my new doctor and he calmed me down and explain how common herpes really is. He suggested I don’t do the Western Blot and I might still do it but not at this time. Next time I talk to him, I’m going to ask about
suppression therapy because my biggest concern, even with condoms and disclosure, is that I transmit it to someone
I’m still worried about having unintentionally exposed the guy I mentioned on the original post but I know, with the things we did and no symptoms, the risk was very low right?
Should I just move on with my diagnosis until I can afford the Western Blot? Or should I just accept the results?January 29, 2023 at 9:04 am in reply to: What should I do? #80236letmeknow123Spectator
I finished my antibiotics for strep on Jan. 23 and for chlamydia on Jan. 25. I reached out to the University of Washington and they are sending me the testing kit. I have an appointment with a new primary care doctor who understands this more on Jan. 31 and will ask him about all this.
I have another appointment with my other doctor regarding my triglycerides Feb. 2 and I won’t ask them to test me again for IgM.
I’m abstaining from sex until I get further clarification on my HSV2 status but I’m mostly concerned about having given it to someone after I knew my IgM test results. Should I be worried about that?
