hello would you like to chat on this?
both your type specific IgG are negative
therefore what this means is that you are negative for herpes
my question why was the other test so high
and my doctor told me I was positive for herpes
thats right, the first test appeared to show a positive reaction
but the second test will be confirmatory
since it was negative you should consider yourself negative
type specific tests are more specific and more reliable
Ok, do you think I should contact my old doctor and talk to him about it because this could be on file now
yes, you should talk with your doctor over this
the fact that you are asymptomatic is also significant, though people may of course be asymptomatic even with infection
but talk about this with your doctor in any case
Ok, thanks for your help. I'm currently in nursing school so I was just courious
in case where there is discrepancy of results, the type specific tests are to be given more importance
ok thanks for all the help
glad to help
