Herpes Test

What does this test include?

We will test for the following Herpes infections:

  • Herpes Simplex I
  • Herpes Simplex II

Herpes is best diagnosed by taking a swab sample from a suspicious lesion.

A Herpes blood test is also available, but the result of this test will only determine if you have come into contact with the virus in the past. More information can be found on the Herpes blood test page.

What if I test positive for Herpes?

We will refer you to our sister clinic who will prescribe an appropriate anti-viral treatment to be sent out for next day delivery.

How long does the test result take?

This PCR test is a specialist test that needs to be done in a referral laboratory. Results take 3 – 4 working days from the time that we receive your sample back.

How reliable are the results?

We use one of the UK's leading pathology labs and the result will be accurate if you have no Herpes infection or the virus is active. If you have herpes but the virus is not active, this is likely to produce a negative result. If you have symptoms such as blisters or sores around your genital area then we strongly advocate a symptomatic lesion test that looks for herpes and syphilis. This can be found on the symptomatic lesion test page. A urine-based herpes test would be appropriate if you have some urethral discomfort but no signs of blisters and all other options had been excluded. Where there is some urethral discomfort or signs of an unusual discharge then we recommend the Full STI Screen.

How long should I wait after a risky event?

We only recommend this test if you are displaying potential symptoms such as small blisters or sores around your genital area.
