Oral Herpes Test

How we test for Oral Herpes (Herpes-1)

Our physicians use the type-specific Enzyme-linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) test to look for the specific antibodies that fight the herpes-1 virus in your blood. The technicians in our CLIA-certified labs take a small blood sample to conduct the test. No undressing or uncomfortable swabbing is necessary.

What do I need to do to prepare for the test?

When is the right time to test for oral herpes?

Our doctors recommend testing for oral herpes 4-6 weeks after initial exposure. Getting tested for oral herpes should be a part of your routine STD screening if you have had unprotected oral sex or have come in contact with HSV-1 infected fluids such as saliva or semen.

If your results are negative, there are no signs of oral herpes in your body. If positive, oral herpes was found.

Can oral herpes be cured or treated?

No. There is no cure for the oral herpes (herpes-1) virus but it is possible to manage the symptoms through antiviral drugs. These drugs do not rid the body of the virus, they help control outbreaks and prevent transmission of oral herpes to your partner.

Who needs oral herpes testing?

Oral Herpes is a fairly common STD and anyone who has had unprotected oral sex or come in contact with infected bodily fluids needs testing. Since Herpes-1 symptoms do not always show up, it is important to get tested even when you do not see signs that you may have been infected.

When is the Right Time to Test For Oral Herpes (Herpes-1)?

Today is the right time to test for Oral Herpes. Know your STD status now.

If you had recent oral sex with someone whose STD status you do not know, it is important that you get tested for oral herpes. Our doctors recommend testing 4-6 weeks after exposure for accurate results. If you believe you have been exposed, it is advisable to re-test after 3 months to confirm an earlier result, especially if it was negative.

Also if you have not been tested for other STDs like chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, HIV-1, HIV-2, hepatitis A, B, C. or herpes-2, in the last year, our doctors recommend taking the all-inclusive 10 Test Panel to ensure that you are completely STD free.

We also offer a chlamydia-gonorrhea test panel. Chlamydia and gonorrhea are known as co-existing infections, meaning that having one infection may put you at risk of having the other.
