Genital Herpes Type-2 IgM – IgG Home Test Kit
Home screening test for herpes HSV2 virus in whole-blood sample
Tell me about the Genital Herpes (HSV2) IgM-IgG Antibody Test.
The most accurate test for genital herpes (HSV-2) is the Herpes Simplex (Collodial Gold Chromatography) Rapid Antibody Test, it’s a “IgM and IgG-based type-specific” whole-blood test. This genital herpes test looks for antibodies that develop in the blood to fight the virus, the antibodies can be detected even if NO symptoms or outbreaks are present.
A positive herpes IgM test results mean you were recently infected with genital herpes virus, this is because herpes IgM antibodies, and IgM antibodies peak shortly after an initial infection and then recede. In contrast, herpes IgG antibodies develop more slowly.
What kind of sample is required Genital Herpes (HSV-2) IgM-IgG Antibody Test?
A simple blood sample collect in the privacy of your home.
Any preparation for the Genital Herpes (HSV-2) Antibody Test?
None.Test results are read visually after 20 minutes, without use of any instruments.
What do the test results mean?
HSV-2 LgM – LgG Antibodies Present (positive): This means you have a genital herpes HSV2 infection, genital herpes is a sexually transmitted infection. It causes small, painful, fluid-filled blisters. These blisters break open and leave an indented sore or ulcer. The blisters can be found on the genitals, buttocks, or thighs. However, they can also spread to other parts of the body (such as, the mouth, face, or eyes).
If you have a positive genital herpes IgM result with a negative genital herpes IgG result, mean you were recently infected with the genital herpes virus, this is because herpes IgM antibodies, and IgM antibodies generally, are thought to peak shortly after an initial infection and then recede.
Detectable levels of herpes IgG take longer to develop than detectable levels of herpes IgM. However, even herpes IgM antibodies can take up to ten days to develop after primary infection with the virus. If you believe you have been exposed, but have no symptoms, you should therefore wait at least two weeks before getting tested, you may also want to go for a repeat test after 6 months if you do not undergo regular screening.
transmitted infections (STIs) that cause open sores on the genitals,
like herpes, syphilis, or chancroid, can increase HIV transmission, we
therefor recommend that you order Herpes Combo (HIV) or Herpes Combo
(STD) to be on the safe side.
People who have both herpes and HIV
infections are also more likely to transmit HIV to their partners.
Replication or activity of the herpes virus in the body appears to
increase HIV viral loads (that is, increase the presence of HIV in blood
and and sexual fluids).
You can have herpes and not get an outbreak for years after the first infection. Without herpes symptoms that you can feel or see, the only way to know you have herpes simplex infection is to get tested.

HOW TO INTERPRET THE RESULT
Read the result 15 minutes after adding the blood sample. Do not read the result after 20 minutes.
HSV-2 Antibodies Present (positive):
Colored lines are visible in the control region test region, this means you have a herpes-2 infection, genital herpes is a sexually transmitted infection. It causes small, painful, fluid-filled blisters. These blisters break open and leave an indented sore or ulcer. The blisters can be found on the genitals, buttocks, or thighs. However, they can also spread to other parts of the body (such as, the mouth, face, or eyes).
The intensity of the color of the lines varies due to different concentrations of HIV antibodies but also other blood values and therefore no meaning is attributed to line color intensity or width.
Negative (No HSV2 infection):
One colored line is visible in the control region and no colored line in the test region. This means that no Herpes HSV2 infection was detected.
There are no colored lines or only a colored line in the test region. The most common reason for an invalid test result is that the test procedure was not carried out properly.
