I appreciate how friendly everyone is, and I was comfortable with the care I received. I wish there was more than one PA on duty because that’s why the wait time was long. I could tell she was doing the best she could on a busy day, though.

Friendly Staff

AFC Urgent Care, Southpoint - 6400 Fayetteville Rd
Came in to the urgent care with an online appointment scheduled. I have been here several times. I have insurance, which was verified by the office, but the front desk girl said I was required to have a credit card on file but couldn’t tell me why. She did say it would be on file in your system for FIVE years. Not only does that seem to be a crazy ask with verified insurance, she could explain why the card was needed or why it would be on file for years. Makes me question things for sure…. The provider was great but first impression needs improvement.

Herpes Testing in Raleigh, NC

Herpes is a viral infection caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV). According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the two most common types of HSV are oral herpes (HSV-1) and genital herpes (HSV-2) (HSV-2). Blisters or cold sores around the lips characterize oral herpes, while blisters or sores in the vaginal area indicate genital herpes.

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

How to contract herpes

Herpes is spread through direct skin-to-skin contact with an infected person, according to the New York State Department of Health. It goes on to warn that herpes can spread even if there are no sores or other symptoms in the affected person.

The best way to reduce your risk of genital herpes, according to the National Institutes of Health, is to avoid having intercourse and to use condoms appropriately and regularly when you do. Staying in a long-term relationship with someone who does not have genital herpes is another excellent way to reduce your risk.

What is a herpes test?

A herpes test, often known as an HSV test, is a form of STD test that examines your body for the presence of HSV. An HSV test can determine whether sores on your mouth or genitals are caused by HSV, according to the National Institutes of Health. In pregnant women, an HSV test can be performed to diagnose a herpes infection and determine whether the baby is at danger.

What is the treatment for herpes?

Herpes cannot be cured, and there is no effective herpes medication that can make the infection go away completely, according to the National Institutes of Health. According to the CDC, certain medicines can help you feel better and reduce your risk of spreading herpes to your sex partner. According to the CDC, antiviral medicines may also prevent or reduce outbreaks while being administered.

Herpes Test FAQs

  • What is a herpes (HSV) test?

    An HSV test can be used to detect HSV in your body. According to the National Institutes of Health, this STD test is available as a swab test or a blood test. If you know you have herpes, you can prevent infecting others, especially unborn infants.

  • What is a herpes test used for?

    A herpes test is frequently used to determine whether HSV is causing herpes symptoms like oral or vaginal sores. A herpes test can be used to diagnose HSV in pregnant women and newborn babies who may have been exposed to HSV while in the womb, according to the National Institutes of Health.

  • Why do I need an HSV test?

    According to the National Institutes of Health, an HSV test may be required if you have had sexual contact with someone who is infected with HSV, or if you are pregnant and have previously had herpes or indications of genital herpes. According to the National Institutes of Health, HSV testing may be required if you've had multiple sex partners, are a male who has sex with men, or have symptoms of a brain or spinal cord condition such as fever, confusion, or a stiff neck.

  • What happens during an HSV test?

    During an HSV swab test, a healthcare worker uses a cotton swab to obtain a fluid and cell sample from a herpes sore. A thin, microscopic needle is used to take a small sample of blood from a vein in your arm during a blood test. A spinal tap is a treatment in which a healthcare professional takes a little volume of fluid from your spine to identify HSV infection.

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

    The swab test and herpes blood test, according to the National Institutes of Health, do not require any special preparation. You may be asked to empty your bladder and bowels before having a spinal tap. The lab test supplier can provide you with more information on the preparation required for your type of HSV test.

  • Are there any risks with a herpes test?

    There are no risks connected with the herpes swab test, according to the National Institutes of Health. The blood test may cause minor discomfort and bruising at the injection site, according to the NIH, but these symptoms usually go away quickly. A spinal tap can cause a headache, as well as discomfort or tightness in the area where the needle was inserted. Your doctor may go over the risks of HSV testing in greater detail with you.

  • What do herpes test results mean?

    HSV test results that are normal or negative imply that no herpes virus was found or detected. However, the National Institutes of Health warns that an HSV infection can exist even if test results are normal. Positive or abnormal results mean that HSV was found in your sample and that you are infected or have previously been infected.

  • Is there anything else I need to know about a herpes test?

    According to the CDC, HSV testing for those who don't have herpes symptoms isn't recommended because a positive diagnosis in someone who doesn't have symptoms doesn't cause them to change their sexual behavior or stop the virus from spreading. According to the CDC, false-positive results might occur in people who don't have any symptoms. The herpes test is presently only recommended for people who have HSV symptoms, according to the CDC.

  • Where can I get a herpes test in Raleigh?

    Many healthcare practitioners that conduct lab tests and STD testing in Raleigh can administer a herpes test. HSV testing is available from a variety of sources, including your primary care physician, a hospital, an urgent care center, or a walk-in clinic
