@tb609 I believe the numbers are only meaningful while they are increasing from 0-5+ which typically happens during the first several months. Once in that definitively positive range, the number can fluctuate but within the positive range. In other words, I think an IgG result of 10 would indicate this is an established infection that you've had for at least several months but would not tell you anything beyond that such as whether you've had it one year or 10 years. I would disregard the IgM test as they are unreliable.


It might help to know that 80-90% of people with herpes don't know they have it, so unless they have stated otherwise, whichever partner transmitted it to you may well have been unaware of their positive HSV2 status.
