I am 52/male. Have had not sexual contact in over 16 months. Starting a new relationship so got STD tested before having sex. If my provider does not call you, test results are assumed to be in normal range, no worries. My provider did not call me. When I saw the results, I was confused. There were four seperate results as Follows:

HERPES 1 & 2 BY EIA
HSV 1 .11 , standard range 0.00 - 0.89
HSV 2 .22 , standard range 0.00 - 0.89

So I see those and think good. Got nothing.

Then a day later two more test results appear
HSV 1,2 IgG & IgM (NOT TYPE SPECIFIC)
HSV 1/2 IGM AB Combined 0.50 negative range
HSV 1/2 IGG AB Combines 1.04 equivocal range

Based on the length of time since sexual contact, can I call the equivocal negative and stop worrying? As I said my provider did not cantacyt me that there was an issue. But when I try to ask about the test results, I am shocked at how little anyone knows.
