Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) 1 and 2-Specific Ab, IgG

What are the symptoms? Genital herpes can be difficult to recognize, because many people never exhibit symptoms. For those who do, the first episode often includes:

In severe cases, people may experience:

While recurrent outbreaks are common, the severity and frequency tends to lessen over time.

What does the test include? The HealthCheck USA Herpes Simplex Virus 1 & 2 lgG test involves a small blood draw by a qualified lab technician. The test will screen for and report separate readings for HSV type 1 and type 2 antibodies. Additionally, the test will verify any existing genital herpes infection (reliable after 12-16 weeks following exposure). The test can be ordered without a doctor's prescription, and you can access your results privately within a few days.

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.
