This test is used to screen for herpes types 1 and 2. It looks for antibodies that begin to develop 4-12 weeks after exposure and remain present for the life of the person infected. Herpes is a viral infection spread by skin-to-skin contact, including during sexual activity. Herpes-type 1 is more common and most often associated with oral herpes. Type 2 is less common and often associated with genital herpes. However, both forms of the virus can be spread to either area depending on the type of contact which results in infection. The most common symptom of herpes infection is periodic outbreaks of sores around the infected area. However, it is not unusual for herpes to display no symptoms for years at a time. The virus can be spread even if the infected person is not experiencing symptoms, which is known as asymptomatic shedding. Chronic herpes infections can cause damage to the nervous system and increase the likelihood of contracting other STDs, including HIV. Herpes is one of the most common STDs and testing is recommended for anyone sexually active. Pregnant women should seek herpes testing to avoid passing the infection during birth.

No special preparation is required.
