Herpes I & II

What kind of herpes test do you use?

The test we use is the HSV-1/2 IgG blood test, which looks for oral herpes and genital herpes. These strains are called herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) and herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2). The test looks for antibodies the body creates to fight off the virus. It is superior to tests that do not differentiate between the two types of herpes.

What kind of sample does the herpes test require?

The herpes test is a blood test. At the lab, the lab tech will draw a blood sample.

How do I prepare for the herpes test?

There is no special preparation required for the herpes test.

What will my herpes results tell me?

Because this test is "type-specific," you will receive two results: one for HSV-1 and one for HSV-2. Your test could be abnormal for one, for both, or for neither type.

Herpes 1 typically causes oral herpes, and herpes 2 typically causes genital herpes. However, keep in mind that both viruses can be spread to either the mouth area or the genitals. The test only shows whether the virus is present, not how long you've had it. In fact, it's possible to have oral herpes or genital herpes for many years, or even decades, before signs or symptoms are evident.

Is there a cure for herpes?

There is no cure or vaccine for herpes, but antiviral drugs can effectively manage outbreaks. Medications help control symptoms and reduce the risk of spreading herpes to partners.
