I have two herpes diagnosis (mine and from my wife), but I am confused about scales. Six months ago she confessed me that she had unprotected sex with another man, I mean intercourse and oral sex.

Both tested positive for HSV I IGG and negative for the rest (above you´ll find the values). However, since the confession she has shown sympthoms in her genital area (that´´s what she says, I haven´t seen it again...), rashes, blisters, and maybe that´s the reason why she put me apart.

I see her in despair, obssessed, with insomnia, depresion, it turned out to be the last stone to our marriage.

My questions are:
1) can she have genital herpes although the tests were negative? it is curable if she got genital herpes due to HSV I?
2) for how long could she be infected, given her test values? can we deduct something from the values?

thanks.

TEST I (she)

I IGM 0,64
II IGM 8,95
I IGG 43,92
II IGG 9,90
(scale: neg. if <16, pos if >20)

TEST II (me)

I IGM 0,51
(scale: neg. if <16, pos if >20)

II IGM 0,33
I IGG 2,52
II IGG 0,41
(scale: neg. if < 0,90, pos. if > 1,10)

I will really appreciate your help.

I'm sorry but I'm not familiar with the blood tests you have had done if you've properly posted them right. Since you are outside the US, odds are you did have different testing done.

You do need to wait several months before getting testing done. any idea how long after the last time your wife had sex with another partner the testing was done?

If she has active symptoms, she needs to go and be seen and get them looked at.

Sorry I can't help more but different countries use different tests.
