I was NOT wrong! I have never had a doctor tell me he could test me for herpes

if there WERE NO SYMPTOMS, so please..stfu and go back to match.com. I get tested every 90 days and NO ONE has ever sold me a test where herpes simplex B could be detected without prior symptoms in a damn blood test! IT CANNOT TELL WHICH SIMPLEX IT IS!! If it were that damn easy the 1 in 4 that the cdc quotes as having this shit WOULD KNOW...freakin duh! I guess you would buy that bridge in Arkansas if you saw it on a website too eh? Brilliant.



"How is genital herpes diagnosed?

The signs and symptoms associated with HSV-2 can vary greatly. Health care providers can diagnose genital herpes by visual inspection if the outbreak is typical, and by taking a sample from the sore(s) and testing it in a laboratory. HSV infections can be diagnosed between outbreaks by the use of a blood test. ((((Blood tests, which detect antibodies to HSV-1 or HSV-2 infection, can be helpful, although the results are not always clear-cut.))) Do I need to spell out what that text means for ya? Thanks.
