Confused by my test results , help .

IGM is typically negative if the infection wasn’t from the past couple weeks, IGG is probably negative because it’s an infection less than 4 months old but older than two weeks. PCR is most accurate. If you are looking for a positive blood test you could retest IGG in a few months. You have HSV2 just not enough antibodies to have a positive blood test yet.

Ig I was hoping the swab was a false positive and the HSV ab reactive could be too . What does that even mean . I thought it was either a positive or negative 

It’s possible but highly unlikely. PCR is more accurate than other tests. It means your body has built up enough cells to fight the virus in your blood to be able to detect it with a blood test. Again i would get the IGG redone in 8-16 weeks.
