    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    My partner recently got tested for HSV
    The results show positive. But I want to know how serious is it. Cause I love her a lot n want to console her.
    I know its not curable. And I also need to get checked up. But I am worried about her.
    This is the result.

    HSV 1 & 2 antibody 1gM = 0.63. HSV 1 & 2 1gG = 2.33 and HSV 2 = 1.07

    Please help me in this

    A good reference that explains results:

    The HSV2 is in the "questionable" range and your partner may wish to repeat this.

    The 2.33 (and I'm going to assume you mean for HSV1) indicated she carries this virus. But so does the majority of adults, having picked this virus up in childhood. Most have few or no outbreaks and, except for testing, are unaware they are infected.
