Why should I get tested for Herpes?
Genital Herpes is a Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD), usually common to people from the ages 12 and older. Caused by the Herpes Simplex Virus Type 2 or HSV-2, this infection occurs during sexual contact with someone who has genital HSV-2 infection. An outbreak of sores usually occurs within 2 weeks after the virus is transmitted, and typically heals in 2 to 4 weeks.
Herpes “sores” cause recurrent painful genital sores in many adults, frequently causing psychological distress in people who know they are infected. About 40 million adult Americans have HSV-2 most NOT knowing they have it. For both types of infections, HSV-1 (Common Cold Sores) and HSV-2, at least two-thirds of infected individuals have NO SYMPTOMS, or symptoms too mild to notice.
How do I get tested for Genital Herpes or HSV-2?
There are a variety of ways to get tested for Herpes such as Viral Culture and certain blood tests. The problem with most standard tests for Herpes, like the ELISA test is, the inability to distinguish between HSV-1 and HSV-2.
This often very easily provides a false-positive result. Which means you can be told you have Genital Herpes when, in fact, you don’t.
