Welcome to health care magic.

IgG to HSV2 is < 0.9 means it is negative i.e Antibodies to HSV 2 is not detectable.IgG may take some days to be formed after exposure.You may need to repeat the test after 3 months exposure if in doubt of herpes. IgM appears first but is not reliable.

Details of symptoms, lesions intercourse /exposure history,partner history is not clear.You can get back with details for clarification.
