I was told by the doctor that I have herpes. I dont remember her saying which kind. She just told me to use protection for sex. What does the number mean?

Jessie,

It's ok to post test results but this one listed a home address. I removed it to preserve your privacy. Feel free to re-post with the address blocked or you can just type the results out.

What I noticed is that the test you circled is an IgM test for herpes. These tests are unreliable in adults because they may pick up on other forms for herpes (such as chicken pox or mono). For accurate testing you should request an IgG type-specific blood test.

Anyone who has sex is at
risk for getting herpes.
