What does the test include?
Who should be tested? Testing is extremely important for anyone who believes they may have been exposed to the HSV virus. Bear in mind that tests during general check-ups, such as pap smears, do not test for genital herpes. In addition, consider testing if you have had multiple sexual partners, even if you have been previously screened for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). That's because you can't assume genital herpes was part of the previous STD testing. Because the federal Centers for Disease Control estimates that one of every six Americans ages 14-49 have genital herpes, testing is a good idea for anyone who is sexually active.
Gonorrhea and Chlamydia testing is either done through a urine test or through a swab inside the penis in men or from the inside of the cervix in women. Gonorhhea and chlamydia are both bacterial infections of the genital tract.
