Equivocal Herpes Test Symptoms

She is currently looking into confirming which tests she had for HSV, as she did not know (and quite frankly, couldn’t confirm that HSV was part of the tests at all. I do not believe I have had symptoms, but cold sores could have been mistaken for acne (constant issue) around the lipsmouth, I suppose. She talked about HSV-I and how that’s the virus that causes cold sores, and that I could just have that but that I could also possibly have HSV-II. I can’t imagine they would have done an STD test on him without drawing blood, but who knows. All the HSV 1 and 2 tests I’ve had in the past have been well below. 90, so I’m certainly fearing that I do indeed have the virus. Could that be a symptom of HSV 2 if the equivocal test does indeed turn positive? (meant to ask that in the first post).

A positive herpes IgG test only tells you that at some point in time you acquired the herpes virus (1 or 2 or both depending on your results). How likely is it for the IgG test to give a false negative, especially 8 months after the initial infection which was diagnosed with a swab test, and when earlier IgG’s were equivocal? Could these have been symptoms or signs of herpes? Blood tests can detect HSV antibodies even when you have no symptoms of herpes. Number between 0. 9 and 1. 1 is equivocal – antibody to HSV-2 may or may not be present. DAY 14: The ESCORT agreed to take the same test for HSV 2 and her test was negative. 5) Should not I get some symptoms of infection by now?

Understanding Blood Tests For Herpes

I talked to my partner and he said he had no obvious symptoms and never had a reason to be checked for herpes and it had been a year or so since last tested. What are the odds of my equivocal actually turning out to be negative? Would a uti cause a weird reading in my bloodwork? What factors can cause an equivocal reading in the first place especially if I tested only a week after and that was clearly not enough time for antibodies to build? If he is in fact positive what are the chances I wouldn’t have caught since we we’re safe, and if he is positive should I consider myself positive. I went to doctor One who visually diagnosed it as herpes based on how and symptoms. She gave me valtrex and did a blood test. I took one tablet and drove home devastated. Well everything came back normal, except for an equivocal HSV 2 test.

The second test came back HSV-1 Negative and HSV-2 Equivocal. My guess is that this is a gross UNDER estimate, as many cases are subclinical- that is, no obvious signs or symptoms of infection, only antibody response. I currently have no symptoms and only got the test to ease my own nerves, but now I am totally rattled. Recently some new tests for herpes have become available which are both helpful and confusing. Recurrent symptoms are usually milder than the first episode, but the psychological impact of the disease can be severe. HSV 1 count is 1. 01, marked as equivocal and is said it may indicate early infection. Maybe the lesion was hsv 1 genitally and that’s why your blood test is only positive for type 1. And i do not have any symptoms related to herpes.
