Tested positive on IGM. Does it indicate herpes?

I tested neg. on the IGG with a 0.2 for HV1 and HV2 and I just was told that i tested Positive on the IGM with a 3.42HI. The girl I was with said she tested neg and claims that she has not been with anyone for some time and has been clean. I haven t been with anyone since August. What does this mean? Do i have Herpes or is this just something im killing myself over?

hi dear, positive with igM means recent infection. but sometime it may happen even due to inapparent infection. if you dont have any lesions you need not worry. also the girl might be a carrier so it is not necessary that she will test positive. for now you dont need to worry at all.
thank you
