    I am so distraugt. Today I received my labs back from my physical and my results for Viral ABS disturbed me.

    HSV AB IGG >5.00 H <0.90 Negative
    HSV 2 IGG >5.00 H >1.10 Positive

    After researching several things on these results; does this mean I have HSV2 and not HSV1. I have never had any col

    d sores or any facial boils. However, I had to think back and I have had sporadic boils in my private area that last for about two days. Which makes me think that I do have HSV2.

    My husband and I both were unfaithful more than 15 years ago but reconsiled our marriage since then. I know that I haven't been with anyone since then and he swears he hasn't either. Where do we go from here?

    Ask youdr Doc to get the exact number and post it on her so we can help you. It is possible that you haved had this for many years but I need the exact figur ovver 1.0 to tell youmore.

    Many people have HSV 2 have no idea the have it. Life will go on and perhaps the issues you have are HSV 2 and you are writing them off as other infections. The next time you get those issues go and get swabbed/cultured/typed to see if it is herpes or some other issue. Watch the video as noted in my signatur line.
