hi - just received herpes results.
i found out the my hsv 2 igm test is positive.
however, all other tests (igg for 1&2 and igm for 1) are negative.
i am wondering what this means? i have never experienced any symptoms or outbreaks. i definitely have been irresponsible with sex over the last few years, though.
i read that igm results are faulty because they-
1. cannot decipher between hsv 1 or 2
2. can produce a false positive
3. less common to have a positive igm without a positive igg
if anyone has insight on what a positive hsv 2 igm result means (without igg positive), i would so appreciate it.
thanks so much
