Pathologist Questions Genital Warts

How can I get screened for genital herpes?

I don't have any obvious symptoms like genital warts, but one of my partners told me that he was just diagnosed with genital herpes... and the last time we had sex was unprotected. What can I do to get screened? I just want to make sure that I don't have it.

You may have several tests done. A direct scrape of the lesion can be send for cytology, culture, or blood test may determine if you have antibodies against the virus.
Go see your gynecologist or urologist. They can assist you with this.
Good luck.
