When To Get Tested For Herpes HSV1 & HSV2

When To Get Tested For Herpes HSV1 & HSV2

Consult a doctor about any of the following symptoms:

  • blisters that burst, leaving red, open sores in the genital area or anus, or around the thighs, bottom, or mouth

  • tingling or itching around the genitals

  • pain when peeing

  • unusual vaginal discharge

It is also a good idea to contact a healthcare professional after having oral, vaginal, or anal sex with someone who has genital herpes if a barrier method of protection was not used.

The World Health Organization (WHO)Trusted Source describes the risk of the herpes virus passing to a newborn during childbirth. Although this is rare, people who are pregnant and have herpes should let their doctors know.

Using a condom or another barrier method of protection during sex reduces the risk of the virus transmitting. It is also a good idea to avoid sharing sex toys with someone who has herpes.

Several online companies offer STI testing kits, including:

  • EverlyWell: This company sells tests for chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, herpes, and HIV.

  • LetsGetChecked: This company sells tests for several common STIs, and it provides prescriptions at no extra cost if a test result is positive.

  • PriortitySTD: This company returns results within 3 days.

Anyone with a positive test result should contact a healthcare professional.

Never Give Up

Why you should go to a sexual health clinic

You can see a GP, but they'll probably refer you to a sexual health clinic if they think you might have genital herpes.

Sexual health clinics treat problems with the genitals and urine system. Many sexual health clinics offer a walk-in service, where you do not need an appointment. They'll often get test results quicker than GP practices and you do not have to pay a prescription fee for treatment.

What happens at a sexual health clinic

The doctor or nurse at the sexual health clinic will:

  • ask about your symptoms and your sexual partners

  • use a small cotton bud (swab) to take some fluid from 1 of your blisters or sores for testing

The test cannot:

  • be done if you do not have visible blisters or sores

  • tell you how long you have had herpes or who you got it from

Symptoms might not appear for weeks or even years after you're infected with the herpes virus.

If you have genital herpes, your previous sexual partners should get tested.

The doctor or nurse at the clinic can discuss this with you and help you tell your partners without letting them know it's you who has the virus.

Treatment for genital herpes

There's no cure. Symptoms clear up by themselves, but the blisters can come back (an outbreak or recurrence).

Aeura's Herpes Formula treats the symptoms of herpes including pain, itching and blisters. Aeura's all-natural, non-prescription medicine can be taken at the onset or used as a preventative solution and has no known side effects.


How long will it take until I see improvement? The efficacy depends on several factors including the dosage, the condition being treated, how soon after symptoms occur that the medicine is started, and the age and health of the patient. Some customers have reported pain relief in as little as 1- 4 hours with lesions gone in 1-4 days. What is the proper dosage for Aeura? Adults and children 12 years and over: Dissolve 3 tablets, 3x per day under tongue at the earliest signs of an outbreak. Children ages 6-12: Half the adult dosage. For children under the age of 6, contact your physician.
