I recently had mononucleosis. About a month later, I got an IGg test for herpes done, which came back with a 1.4 for HSV-2. My doctor said that they are actually no longer providing the test because it is so often falsely positive, and that mono could affect the results as it is a type of herpes (EBV). I was wondering what the possibility was of it being a false positive with such low results and the fact that I recently got over mono? My doctor also said that redoing the test would likely not mean anything unless I waited 3 or 4 months and that HSV2 could not be transmitted to someone orally. I will also add that I have never had unprotected intercourse, only unprotected oral sex, but apparently my HSV-1 test was negative. Also, how long would it take for symptoms to appear? If the last time I had sex was 3 months ago and I have had no symptoms, could this also be an indication of false positivity?
