About the Test

Herpes testing helps promote your sexual health – whether related to active symptoms, new relationships, or just part of your annual STD screenings. This herpes blood test checks for HSV 1 and HSV 2 which can cause painful sores around the mouth (oral herpes) or genitals (genital herpes). Although there is no cure for herpes, HSV tests can help with early detection, inform treatment to relieve symptoms, reduce future episodes, and prevent transmission.

With Quest®️, you can buy a herpes test online and get testing at a nearby location – no doctor’s visit required.
