Hello
Genital herpes can be diagnosed by the use of a blood test (serologic testing). Blood tests can detect HSV antibodies even when you have no symptoms of herpes.
The accurate testing for type 2 herpes simplex virus detect IgG antibodies using a method called ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay). The test produces a numerical result called ELISA index value.
Officially, index value greater than 1.1 is considered positive.
Index value below 0.9 indicates a negative result. If the IgG test is negative, and at least six months have passed from time of possible infection, you don’t have herpes.
Number between 0.9 and 1.1 is equivocal - antibody to HSV-2 may or may not be present.
Thank you

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
