Customer Question

Hi, I was with a partner who had cold sores and tested + for herpes. We always used condoms after finding out. However before this, we had unprotected sex. I just got tested and I'm is 1.26. My doc is now testing with igg. Am I pretty much 100% likely to have positive igg?

Hi there ...
In most of the cases Herpes infection remains asymptomatic and in most of the cases under stress , low immune status and disease state it get activated , IgG Shows previous infection if it comes positive than it indicates that you had past asymptomatic infection .
I will also suggest you to have PCR test for Herpes virus , and treatment is indicated only when you have breakout of Herpes in asymptomatic individuals no treatment is offered .
Regards .
Please leave positive feedback for me .
Thanks .
