HSV Kit: Oral & Genital Herpes Test


The HSV Kit tests for genital and oral herpes. The test is easy to use and only requires you to swab a visible lesion or sore which you may have on your genitals, lips, or mouth, then mail it in for testing.

Herpes is a very common STD caused by the Herpes Simplex Viruses Type 1 (HSV-1) and Type 2 (HSV-2). The viruses are contagious and spread through skin-to-skin contact with a person’s infected areas.

Infection happens during sexual interactions such as kissing, oral sex, vaginal sex, and anal sex. You cannot get herpes from coughing, sneezing, sitting on a toilet seat, or hugging. 

It is important to note that condoms and other protective barriers may not stop you from contracting herpes because virus shedding can occur in areas not covered by condoms.

Herpes is a sneaky infection and can lie dormant for years before any symptoms present themselves. And due to many people being asymptomatic or having mild symptoms, they are unaware they have herpes or mistake it from some other condition.

The best way to protect yourself is to order the HSV Kit and test yourself and your partners before engaging in any sexual interactions including, kissing or oral sex.

Oral Herpes

HSV-1 is usually the cause of oral herpes, but HSV-2 can also be the cause. Oral herpes typically shows up as a cold sore or fever blister on or around the mouth or lips.

To simplify, if you are infected with either HSV-1 or HSV-2 on your mouth, lips, or tongue, it is considered an oral herpes infection.

Genital Herpes

HSV-2 is usually the cause of genital herpes, but HSV-1 can also be the cause. Genital herpes typically shows up as blisters or sores on or around the genitals during an outbreak.

To simplify, if you are infected with either HSV-1 or HSV-2 on your genitals, it is considered a genital herpes infection. Your genitals include (penis, vagina, anus, scrotum, butt, inner thighs, vulva).

Please note that both HSV-1 and HSV-2 can be transmitted when no symptoms are present or visible.

Symptoms may include

For some people, herpes may not present any symptoms, and the viruses can be confused for things like the flu, ingrown hairs, or even pimples.

The most common symptoms are itchy, painful blistery-like sores located on or around your mouth, lips, or genitals.

Other symptoms can include:
