    hi there. Im sorry but I don't understand your question. If you say it is clear to you that you have HSV 2 from those results then what is your question??????? If you are referring to the 0.9 I think that is right on the cutoff for equivocal. Im thinking that means you will have to get retested later because it could convert to positive (or Negative later)...but most times means "early" disease. I believe LESS than 0.9 is negative in most cases.

    It looks to me like you are surely positive for hsv2 and negative for hsv1--On your results it should give the ranges for positive, equivocal and negative. If it was the Elisa - it usually lists .90 as negative - .91-1.09 as equivocal and anything above 1.09 as positive

    Did you have an active outbreak at any time or possibly a series of what you might have thought were yeast infections?
