How it works

FSA & HSA cards accepted.

Our herpes test looks for antibodies to the HSV-1 and HSV-2 viruses using a finger prick blood sample. Antibodies are a sign that you have been exposed to a virus at some point but do not necessarily mean that you are experiencing an outbreak of oral or genital herpes. HSV-1 is usually associated with oral herpes (cold sores) but in some cases can cause genital herpes. HSV-2 is associated with genital herpes.
