How Herpes IgM Testing Works

Getting tested for herpes can be stressful, but it doesn’t have to be! There is no shame in getting tested. In fact, it’s a very positive step to take for both yourself and your partner.

For herpes IgM testing, CLIA-certified labs collect a non-invasive blood sample and search for the presence of HSV-1 or HSV-2 antibodies. This type of testing allows for accurate results as early as 10 days after exposure. Then, results are made available to you within 3-5 business days after collection, through our private online portal.

Getting tested can make anyone feel a little apprehensive. But you don’t want to risk spreading HSV to your partner and no one wants to deal with the discomfort or embarrassment of an uncontrolled breakout. That’s why testing for herpes should be quick, easy and discrete.

Priority STD Testing offers prompt results, a pleasant ordering experience and assistance at every step. Get tested quickly and on your own terms with our herpes early detection testing.

Have Questions?

To get same day testing, simply purchase your lab order either online from our website or over the phone with one of our care counselors. Once your order has been placed, you can get tested immediately at any of our local and discreet collection facilities without an appointment. No other patients at the testing center will know your reason for visiting other than to give a routine urine and blood sample.
Your test results are accessible through a secure login unique to your order, updated 24 hours a day including partial results. Once your final results are available, you'll be notified by email discreetly. Test results are expedited as a rush order and typically process just 24-72 hours after visiting the collection facility. If you have questions about your results or require a treatment consult, our care counselors are just a phone call away. Nothing will ever be sent to your home or healthcare provider to respect your privacy.
Patients frequently ask if swabs are required for testing. Swab testing is not only uncomfortable, but also can be embarrassing. Our tests do not require a swab or any other type of visual examination. All that is needed is a simple urine and blood sample.
All of the tests we offer are FDA approved and performed in CLIA certified labs to ensure the highest level of accuracy. Some STDs require that you wait a period of time after sexual contact before getting tested. Each disease has a different latency period, so understanding when to test is important. If you have questions, our care counselors are happy to walk you through the process, start to finish.
No fasting is required for any type of test we offer. If you are testing for chlamydia, gonorrhea, or trichomoniasis, please ensure that you have not urinated for at least one hour prior to visiting the testing center.
To use your health insurance, we are able to provide all of the necessary information to file a self-claim. We utilize Quest Diagnostics which is the largest lab network in the nation, therefore most healthcare providers will offer some form of reimbursement. We will never directly bill your insurance to ensure your results are completely private and kept off of your permanent health record.
If at any point you need assistance, call us at 1-888-211-2365 and one of our care counselors will assist you with any questions you may have regarding your testing options. We offer both customized tests and comprehensive panels to fit your testing needs.
