Depressed my HSV 2 (Genital Herpes) Igg test cane back as equivocal scared my boyfriend will leave?

Edited , 6 users are following.


hey guys my result came back as equivocal or inconclusive for HSV 2 (see attached it is 0.94) really worried about this because ive only slept with my current boyfriend for the past 6 months, and he was a virgin prior to me. I didn't cheat on him or anything. The testing center said to get it tested again in 4-6 weeks. I am confused with this result, as an equivocal number means i could have recently been infected, which does not make sense as my boyfriend was a virgin.

help im depressed right now and seriously worried my boyfriend will leave me and no other guy will want me 😦

    You can have hsv2 igg test again after 6 weeks or so. My hsv 2 igg test after 4 months of my last sexual act came equivocal 0.92, then i repeated the test after 2 months it came out negative 0.52 thankfully

    i have had something similar happen to me. i got equivocal results at .94 with the igm test. i had then retested 6 weeks later (this time with the igg test) and showed up negative for both hsv 1 and 2. I have since had the test repeated 3 times for peace of mine. Bottom line, dont sweat it. Retest in 6 weeks, and go from there. Goodluck!
