Herpes Testing - IGG, Western Blot

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I received my first H 2+ result a couple weeks ago after a general std screening. The test administered was a igg blood test. I have not had any noticeable HSV symptoms. In light of not having symptoms I requested to take the Western Blot test for a definitive result because the igg blood test can produce false positives. My doctor said she was unable to order the Western Blot test but offered another igg blood test, which I took and which also came back positive today. Should I be confident that I have HSV 2 based on two positive igg test and no symptoms or is it still worth trying to get the Western Blot test to be sure?

Thank you
