Brief Answer:
STD test interpretation.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for the question and attachments.
I had gone through the question and attachments, understood your concerns about STDs.
As per the test report, you were tested for Hepatitis B and C, Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea (Nisseria), Syphilis (RPR) and Herpes Simplex virus. So you were not tested for HIV at all.
The second report had all of them except Herpes Simplex, were reported as negative. Herpes simplex test has not arrived yet. Since you were saying IgG Herpes is turned negative which was also tested for, you should lessen your anxiety. You are free from STDs as per the report.
Hope this answer will deliver some peace.

Brief Answer:
Herpes test

Detailed Answer:
Hi again

IgG test is always about antibodies against past infection. The Acute antibodies are IgM against Herpes, about current infection, which may not have arrived yet. You can call up the diagnostics or the doctors clinic and ask for a full report with test results.
As per the picture, HIV test was not done at all.
