Received HSV-2 test results without any explanation

I received my positive test results over the phone, but wasn't told what it means as far as - how severe, do I need medication, should I retest in the future, what test was given, etc. So since the clinic could not make time to see me in person or give me a phone consultation to explain my test reults, I picked up a copy of the results. Here is what it reads -

HSV Type 2-specific Ab, IgG (163147) Type Spec (H) 4.42 index, 0.00-0.90
Negative <0.91
Equivocal 0.91-1.09
Positive >1.09

Can someone tell me what this means? Thanks!

Call your Doc's nurse and ask the nurse to explain to you what you have. I am not really certain what the testing means. I havve my idea but it would be better if they told you. Your health provider pays the doc and part ot what the Doc should do for you is tell you wnat you have.

Once they tell you come back here so we can give you more direction.
