Confused for my daughter

Recommended Posts

My daughter was tested in August 2020. Her IGG came back negative for HSV 1 and 2 but her IGM came back positive 2.19. The test also says that She has not had any symptoms or sores. Her Gyno has been less than helpful explaining anything to her. We are going to find a new doctor but are trying to get some clarity before hand. I tried setting up an account to ask Terry Warren some specific questions but have been unsuccessful as of now. She is planning on getting the Western Blot Test soon.

Sorry you both are going through so much confusion! False positives and negatives are unfortunately quite common, especially with IgM. And yes, definitely go for the western blot to get a definitive result. By the way, here's an article on herpes tests with more explanation.

@Blue1982 Hello!

Because the Western Blot is  a blood test, you will need to ask your primary care physician or gynecologist for a referral to go get blood work done. 

Here is a helpful reliable page about the Blot Test, including what it specifically tests for, and the codes that the doctor would put on the script for blood work.

I hope this helps! 

Sending Blessings Your Way! 🌻
