Test Results

Recommended Posts

I keep reading about the topic all the time. I was looking at my test results from Oct and realized that my test was a blood test don ed for HSV igM. I have heard that igM test results are not reliable. Is that true? 

Should I go back and get another test done for igG?

IgM is certainly horribly unreliable, but IgG isn't too much better. Both carry false positives and false negatives. To be sure, look into getting the Western Blot, which is the gold standard in herpes blood testing: https://www.herpesopportunity.com/post/herpes-tests
