Oral Herpes Test

Doctors at STD Testing Centers of America use the Enzyme-linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) test to diagnose herpes 1(oral herpes). This test searches for the presence of the antibodies that fight against the virus in the bloodstream. When you visit one of our CLIA Certified labs a technician will draw a small sample of blood for the test. There is no need to undress or have any swabs taken.

Will I be having blood drawn or providing a urine sample for the oral herpes test?

The test for oral herpes requires a blood sample. You don’t need to undress or have a swab taken.

Is there anything I need to do to get ready for the test?

No there is nothing in particular that you need to do so no fasting is needed for the oral herpes test.

When is the best time to be tested for oral herpes?

Our doctors have determined that the optimum time to be tested for oral herpes is 4 to 6 weeks after someone has been exposed. This test should be part of any regular STD screening for anyone who has had oral sex without protection or for anyone who has been in contact with the fluids (saliva or semen) of someone having the HSV-1.

What will I see on my test results?

When you get your results if they say negative then that means the presence of oral herpes was not detected in your blood. If the results say positive that means that oral herpes was detected.

What is the cure or treatment for oral herpes?

No there is not any cure for oral herpes (herpes 1 virus) but the symptoms can be managed by taking antiviral medication. Although the medication does not cure oral herpes it does control the frequency of outbreaks and keeps the virus from being transmitted to others.

Who should be tested for oral herpes?

Anyone who has engaged in unprotected oral sex should be tested. Oral herpes is commonly found in the population so those who have come in contact with the bodily fluids of an infected partner needs to be tested. Even if there is no sign of herpes 1 symptoms that does not mean you’re not infected. Only by being tested will you know your status.
