An immunoassay is used in our herpes virus type 1 and type 2 (IgG) specific antibody testing to identify antibodies to both variants of the herpes virus in the blood. The tester is positive for the matching virus if enough antibodies are present.
Even without an outbreak, our FDA-approved herpes type 1 & 2 testing is 97%-99% accurate between 4-6 weeks after exposure. After six weeks, it will still be 99% accurate. Both HSV-1 and HSV-2, known as genital herpes and oral herpes, can be present on either side of the body.
A positive HSV-1 test result does not always indicate oral herpes, nor does a positive HSV-2 test result show genital herpes. Entering your zip code and selecting the most convenient lab is all it takes to find a lab. Then, you pay online and can be tested the next day.
HSV-1 is typically transmitted through kissing, sexual contact, oral secretions, sharing personal items like toothbrushes, and direct contact with herpes blisters. Rarely can HSV-2 spread through methods besides intercourse and natural touch with herpes-positive genitalia. Patients with herpes typically don’t initially show any symptoms.
The infection can spread for weeks, months, or even years before symptoms appear. Herpes can still be applied even when protection is utilized, despite the importance of consistently engaging in safe sex.
This is why it’s crucial to discuss your partner’s health openly and honestly, to be aware of the symptoms to watch out for and to comprehend that herpes can still be transmitted even in the absence of symptoms.
A blood sample is required for the herpes type 1 and 2 (IgG) type-specific antibody test. This type of testing is the most accurate and dependable option.
Before testing, no preparation is required, including fasting or appointments.
As soon as you notice any symptoms, get checked out! However, if you are not experiencing symptoms, our clinicians recommend waiting at least four weeks after potential herpes virus exposure before getting pushed to ensure greater accuracy.
Your herpes antibody concentration in your blood determines whether your results are positive, negative, or indeterminate. A negative effect indicates insufficient herpes antibodies in a blood sample for you to be considered herpes positive. A positive test result means that your blood has a sizable level of antibodies to either one or both herpes viruses. It is possible to experience both herpes kinds simultaneously. After order to confirm a negative diagnosis, those who test negative should retest after three months.
Herpes, regardless of type, cannot be cured. However, if you are experiencing severe symptoms, antiviral medications can help you manage them. These drugs do not cure the virus, but they can help control outbreaks, reduce the severity of symptoms, and lower your chances of spreading the virus to others. It’s important to note that most herpes-positive people live perfect everyday and happy lives, with little interference from the virus. Herpes is extremely common; the World Health Organization estimates that up to 67 percent of the world’s population has HSV; however, this figure could be even higher because most healthcare professionals do not test for the virus unless specifically requested.
