I was able to choose a Quest lab location and schedule an appointment. Check in was easy, and I only needed to provide my name and DOB. They were able to locate my order in their system. They were already aware that my labs were paid for prior to the appointment. I had my labs done on a Wednesday, and I received my results by Saturday. Great experience.

Getting a Herpes Test in Louisiana

The herpes simplex virus causes herpes, which is a viral ailment (HSV). Oral herpes (HSV-1) and genital herpes (HSV-2) are the two main kinds of HSV, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) (HSV-2). Oral herpes is characterized by blisters or cold sores around the mouth, and genital herpes is characterized by blisters or sores in the vaginal area.

According to the State of New York Department of Health, herpes is one of the most common viral illnesses in the United States, with genital herpes affecting one in every four Americans aged 18 and older. Herpes is transmitted through direct contact with sores, most commonly during vaginal, oral, or anal sex with an infected person. Herpes can spread even if an infected person has no visible sores, according to the National Institutes of Health.

How to contract herpes

According to the State of New York Department of Health, herpes is transferred by direct skin-to-skin contact with an infected person. It goes on to say that herpes can spread even if the infected person doesn't have any sores or other symptoms.

According to the National Institutes of Health, the best method to lower your risk of genital herpes is to avoid having intercourse and to use condoms regularly and correctly when you do. Another effective strategy to lower your chance of genital herpes is to stay in a long-term relationship with someone who does not have it.

What is a herpes test?

A herpes test, often known as an HSV test, is a type of STD test that tests for HSV in your body. According to the National Institutes of Health, an HSV test can establish whether sores on your mouth or genitals are caused by HSV. An HSV test can also be used to diagnose a herpes infection in pregnant women and assess whether the baby is at risk.

What is the treatment for herpes?

According to the National Institutes of Health, herpes cannot be cured, and there is no effective herpes treatment that can make the illness go away completely. Certain drugs, according to the CDC, may minimize your symptoms and your potential to spread herpes to your sex partner. Antiviral drugs may also prevent or limit outbreaks while they are being taken, according to the CDC.

Herpes Test FAQs

  • What is a herpes (HSV) test?

    HSV can be detected in your body using an HSV test. This STD test is offered as a swab test or a blood test, according to the NIH. Knowing if you have herpes can help you avoid infecting others, particularly unborn children.

  • What is a herpes test used for?

    A herpes test is often performed to identify if HSV is producing herpes symptoms, such as oral or genital sores. According to the National Institutes of Health, a herpes test can be used to diagnose HSV in pregnant women and newborn newborns who may have been exposed to HSV while in the womb.

  • Why do I need an HSV test?

    If you have had sexual interaction with someone who is infected with HSV, or if you are pregnant and have previously had herpes or signs of genital herpes, you may need an HSV test, according to the National Institutes of Health. If you've had several sex partners, are a male who has sex with men, or have signs of a brain or spinal cord issue including fever, disorientation, or a stiff neck, HSV testing may be required, according to the NIH.

  • What happens during an HSV test?

    A healthcare provider collects a fluid and cell sample from a herpes sore with a cotton swab during an HSV swab test. During a blood test, a healthcare worker draws a small sample of blood from a vein in your arm with a thin, tiny needle. A spinal tap is a procedure in which a healthcare specialist extracts a little amount of fluid from your spine in order to diagnose HSV.

  • Will I need to do anything to prepare for the test?

    According to the National Institutes of Health, the swab test and herpes blood test require no specific preparation. Before getting a spinal tap, you may be asked to empty your bladder and bowels. More information about the preparation required for your type of HSV test can be obtained from the lab test supplier.

  • Are there any risks to the test?

    According to the National Institutes of Health, there are no hazards associated with the herpes swab test. According to the NIH, the blood test may produce slight soreness and bruising at the injection site, but these symptoms normally go away quickly. A spinal tap can result in a headache, as well as soreness or tenderness where the needle was put in the back. Your doctor may go over the potential hazards of HSV testing with you in further detail.

  • What do the results mean?

    Normal or negative HSV test results indicate that no herpes virus was found or detected. However, according to the National Institutes of Health, an HSV infection can occur even if test findings are benign. Positive or abnormal results indicate that HSV was detected in your sample and that you are either infected or have been affected in the past.

  • Is there anything else I need to know about an HSV test?

    The CDC does not advocate HSV testing for persons who do not have herpes symptoms since a positive diagnosis in someone who does not have symptoms does not induce people to change their sexual activity or stop the virus from spreading, according to the CDC. False-positive findings are also possible in persons who do not exhibit symptoms, according to the CDC. According to the CDC, the herpes test is currently only advised for persons who have HSV symptoms.

  • Where can I get a herpes test in Louisiana?

    A herpes test is available in Louisiana from many healthcare professionals who provide lab tests and STD testing. HSV testing may be available through your general care physician, a hospital, an urgent care center, or a walk-in clinic, among other places.
