Customer Question
Hi, wondering if i...

Hi, wondering if i should get the blood test for HSV1 and . I had it done in January and have been with the same partner. However, we did not have unprotected sex until after the test. Any advice?

Doctor's Assistant: Is this a time sensitive issue? What type of specimen are they testing?

Blood I do not have any symptoms but have heard many people don't so I'm a little concerned and worried

It would be a good idea to get tested for all STDs if you are now engaging in unprotected sex. Your partner should also get tested. You can share your results with each other to ensure safety and confidence in your relationship going forward.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
