Long wait time, understandably, it was busy, and the front desk person called me on my phone and asked us where we were...I told her that we were in one of the examination rooms, waiting for the doc, they forgot that we were there. The staff otherwise were great, the EMT/manager was super helpful, and the doctor was a high-quality guy...it was a great experience overall.

Wait time is awful, but Covid tests clog up waitlist. Front desk staff are overworked, or tired, because very unfriendly and unwilling to help. Medical assistant was awesome however, provided kindness, and expertise. Provider was also very efficient and friendly. So mixed review.

We have come to this Urgebt Care twice and received excellent care both times. First, our son had a bad allergic reaction to an insect bite resulting in full body hives. The staff was quick to see him, communicated well throughout, and explained all options and follow up clearly. Our second time required several stitches for our son and the staff was again great in navigaing difficulties.

Latest Herpes Test Updates

Jun 15, 2022
BA.4 and BA.5 — "sister variants" of the original omicron strain — are gaining prevalence in the U.S. and now account for about 1 in 5 confirmed COVID-19 cases nationwide, CDC data shows. (Becker's)
May 31, 2022
COVID-19 hospitalizations are up 20 percent nationwide over the last 14 days, with 45 states and Washington, D.C., reporting an increase. Nationwide, COVID-19 cases increased 14 percent over the past 14 days, according to HHS data collected by The New York Times.

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 to the 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 the 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 an HSV 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.
    Find herpes testing providers in your area using Solv and make an appointment for the same day or the next day. Type "herpes test" or "STD testing" into the search form on Solv's website, then choose your location to find top-rated providers in your area.

Raleigh Herpes Testing

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.
