Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) that is caused by the herpes simplex virus. There are two types of herpes simplex: Type 1 (HSV-1) and Type 2 (HSV-2). Most genital herpes is caused by HSV-2.

The HSV Type I and II IgG test is appropriate for exposure at least 4 weeks prior to testing. This assay is type specific and will differentiate between HSV-1 and HSV-2 infections. A single positive result only indicates previous immunologic exposure and the level of antibody response may not be used to determine active infection or disease stage. The test should be repeated in 4-6 weeks when negative or equivocal results are obtained in suspected early herpes simplex disease. The performance of this assay has not been established for pediatric populations, for neonatal screening, or for the testing of immunocompromised patients.
Positive results may require further evaluation by your physician.
