Herpes

What is it?

Herpes simplex is a virus that is transmitted by close personal contact.  Infection occurs if the virus comes into contact with certain surfaces such as through small cracks in the skin, genital area, lips, and mouth.  There are two types of Herpes, type 1 (HSV-1) and type 2 (HSV-2).  HSV-1 historically was associated with the lips and mouth, while HSV-2 was associated with genital disease.  However, the location where Herpes occurs does not necessarily determine what virus type one has. Herpes is a lifelong virus.

Who is at risk?

Usually, HSV-1 is acquired during childhood by coming into contact with oral secretions that have the virus.  HSV-2 is generally sexually transmitted via direct skin-to-skin contact and is slightly more common in women than in men. Anyone who is sexually active is at risk of HSV-2.  The herpes virus can be transmitted from the skin even if there is no apparent sore.

What are the signs and symptoms?

As many as 80% of persons infected with HSV have no symptoms.  Every person will differ in the severity and frequency of herpes outbreaks.  Symptoms are usually worse in women.  Symptoms of an initial outbreak usually begin within 4 days after exposure to an infected person but can range from 2-12 days. In men, herpetic blisters can appear on the glans and shaft of the penis, scrotum, thighs, and buttocks.  In women, herpetic blisters can appear on the genital area, labia, and inside the vagina.  The blisters from an initial infection can last up to 2-4 weeks. Sometimes the outbreaks are recurrent and usually decrease over time.

Testing

All patients who are at risk, are concerned about exposure to STDs, or have been diagnosed with other STDs should be tested for Herpes.  Blood testing is the best available test for making a diagnosis of HSV-1 or HSV-2.  The results are usually available within 2-3 business days.

Treatment

There is no cure for herpes.  However, antiviral medications can help prevent or shorten outbreaks.  Our Board Certified Clinicians can help decide what type of treatment is best for you.  Persons with herpes should not have any sexual contact while sores or symptoms of herpes are present.  Partners should be tested as well to determine if they are also infected with HSV.

Condoms should be utilized to prevent the risk of transmission of STDs (although abstinence is the only way to 100% protect yourself).  Vaccinations that prevent certain STDs such as Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, and HPV should be considered.

One in every five people in our country has contracted a Sexually Transmitted Disease.  According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) there are 20 million new infections in the United States every year. Do not become a statistic; know the facts about Sexually Transmitted Diseases.

Most Sexually Transmitted Diseases have little to no warning signs or symptoms; the only way to know for sure is by testing.  If symptoms are present it might be more serious than you think.  Symptoms can vary greatly including but not limited to:

  • Dark color or heavy odor in urine
  • Discharge from genitals
  • Abnormal spots or rash
  • Burning during urination
  • Bumps, warts or blisters on genitals
  • Pain during sex or urination

Sexually Transmitted Diseases have many misconceptions as they have no discrimination as to sex, race, age, sexual orientation or religion. The facts are simple: Sexually Transmitted Diseases are transmitted by sex regardless of mode of transmission (i.e. oral, anal, or vaginal). The only fool proof way to avoid a Sexually Transmitted Disease is through abstinence.  STDs can still be spread even with the use of a condom. Get tested and do it often so you do not spread what can be prevented.

There are billions of dollars spent in the United States health care system each and every year in the treatment of Sexually Transmitted Diseases. Prevention and testing are necessary to prevent possible lifelong chronic health issues. What is your piece of mind worth?

Vegas STD Testing offers discrete, private and confidential testing for Syphilis, Chlamydia, Hepatitis, Herpes, Gonorrhea, and HIV/AIDS. Our highly trained staff is here to ensure all privacy laws and HIPAA regulations are followed. You are much more likely to contract HIV when one or more STDs are already present. Even after treatment, there is no guarantee that a Sexually Transmitted Disease is gone without retesting.

Our Northwest location is in the Rainbow Promenade across from the Best in the West Shopping Center off of Lake Mead and US-95.
