Had a negative HSV-2 test result . . . totally confused now.

Recommended Posts

Back in 2015 I had two low-ish but positive HSV test results within a few months of each other--I had intended to wait a while and then retest to see if the numbers rose . . . I also considered the western blot, but was really too broke to pay for that. I'd always seemed asymptomatic, but I experienced some tingles and a variety of vague things that convinced me I was having mild breakouts, so "waiting to retest" turned into "feeling resigned to my fate," and I didn't get around to the retest until just a few days ago, it came back negative. So now I am pretty confused.


8/28/2015 IgG HSV-1 negative, HSV-2 1.38

10/16/2015 HSV-2, 3.2 (labcorp)

2/7/2017 HSV-2, <0.91 (labcorp)


I never did have severe symptoms, I never took antivirals, and I haven't had intercourse since all of this started. I've posted a question on Terri Warren's herpes forum, but it looks to me like she isn't answering in the last few days and I am terribly anxious for some feedback.


Can I accept this negative test result and assume the previous were false positives? Do I need to go through with the expense of a WB? What would you do?
