herpes blood test results, help

I took a hsv 1/2 igg blodd test type specific AB on the 8 of august at a planned parenthood place. I went online today and saw my results, but they said that they will call in a week or two if something positive came up. The results were --HSV 1 IGG TYPE SPECIFIC AB- measure 27.00, unit-index, abnormal flag H. HSV 2 IGG TYPE SPECIFIC AB, measure < 0.90, units-index, abnormmal flag N. WHAT DO THESE NUMBERS MEAN AND THE ABNORMAL FLAG

That's not really how it works. Stress and trauma can cause an outbreak but that's not a rule.
My educated guess is you've had hsv1 for a long time. Probably since you were a small child and you don't get cold sores. This is very common.
