Genital Herpes treatment & testing in Australia
What is genital herpes?Genital herpes is an infection in the genital herpes simplex virus (HSV2). First outbreaks most often comes days to weeks after infection, recent infection may come back repeatedly. A Genital herpes test is easy and secure, all needed is a simple blood sample and after 20 minutes you will have your genital herpes test result at home.
What is genital herpes infection?Genital herpes is an infection in the genital herpes simplex virus (HSV2). A distinction between the two types of viruses: HSV-1 and HSV-2. First outbreak (primary infection) most often comes days to weeks after infection. In many (> 50%) extends this without bothering, but the first outbreak can be very bothersome. The external genitalia are reddish, swollen and tender, and the formation of painful blisters. These will eventually burst and result in the formation of small wounds. The outbreak often causes drowsiness, headache and fever. It is also common with joint pain. Urination can be very painful. Untreated, the condition disappears after 3-4 weeks.
Many, but not all, get new herpes outbreaks. The new outbreaks are milder than primary infection, with fewer blisters and sores, and often the absence of constitutional symptoms.
Genital herpes infection is very common, and the incidence increases. It has been found that approximately 1/3 of all people in the age of 30 are infected with HSV-2, and more than 4/5 with HSV-1. HSV-2 is the cause of 4 of 5 cases with gender herpes. HSV-1, which is usually found on the lips, found in 1 of 5 with sex herpes.
Genital herpes test can be preformed without any active outbreak, the genital herpes test will check for antibodies produces by the infections.
HSV-2 is transferred virtually exclusively sexually, while HSV-1 transmitted sexually or non-sexually. Only about 20% of those with HSV-2 know that they have had genital herpes, further ca. 20% had symptoms during life, but received no specific diagnosis, while 60% can not report any subjective symptoms of previous genital herpes.
Mothers with HSV2 outbreaks can infect the baby at birth, best way to protect yourself and the baby is to take a genital herpes test.
How do a get infected?Genital herpes is transmitted primarily through sexual contact. The practice of oral sex is a risk of infection from the mouth to the genitals and vice versa. The virus travels along nerve paths, and go into the resting phase in so-called nerve ganglia. Once the virus is in the rest phase, one has no symptoms. The virus can however awaken from dormancy and cause repeated outbreaks of the same localization. In recent outbreaks is mentioned usually milder than the first episode.
The risk of infection is greatest when you have outbreaks, but infection outside outbreaks occur, especially by HSV2. It is therefore possible to transmit the infection without being infected are aware of the possibility. Condoms protect to some degree against infection. But the virus can remain on the skin beyond the condom coverage area, and thus contagion also using a condom.
The disease usually burn out and decreases in intensity. Some experience only an outbreak, while the disease in others may remain active for many years. There is nothing to suggest that the disease is dangerous in the long term. There is no excess frequency of cancer or therapy in patients with herpes infection.
Herpes can infect the fetus during labor. This can cause serious illness in the newborn. The chance of such infection is fortunately very small but they still choose to undertake caesarean section in women receiving first outbreak near term.

Tell me about the Herpes Test Simplex (HSV-2) - Antibody Test.
The HSV-2 Rapid Test Device detects antibodies to HSV-2 through visual interpretation of color development. Recombinant antigens of HSV-2 and anti-human antibodies are used to detect the specific antibodies in the human whole blood samples. When a sample is added to the sample well on the test panel, HSV-2 antibodies, if present, will bind to the anti-human conjugated to colored particles on the sample pad. As the specimen migrates along the strip by capillary action and interacts with reagents on the membrane, the complex will be captured by recombinant HSV-2 antigens immobilized at the detection zone. Excess colored particle are captured at the internal control zone.
The presence of a red band in the test region (T) indicates a positive result for the particular antibodies, while its absence indicates a negative result. A red band at the control region (C) serves as a procedural control, indicating that the proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking is working.
What kind of sample is required?
A simple blood sample collect in the privacy of your home.
What do the test results mean?
HSV-2 Antibodies Present (positive): This means you have a genital herpes HSV2 infection, genital herpes is a sexually transmitted infection. It causes small, painful, fluid-filled blisters. These blisters break open and leave an indented sore or ulcer. The blisters can be found on the genitals, buttocks, or thighs. However, they can also spread to other parts of the body (such as, the mouth, face, or eyes).
Genital Herpes HSV2 IgM antibodies can take up to ten days to develop after primary infection with the virus. If you believe you have been exposed, but have no symptoms, you should therefore wait at least two weeks before getting tested, you may also want to go for a repeat test after 6 months if you do not undergo regular screening.
Limitations of the test
The HSV-2 Rapid Test Device is for home in vitro diagnostic use, and should only be used for the qualitative detection of antibodies to HSV-2. The color intensity in a positive band should not be evaluated as “quantitative or semi-quantitative”.
Failure to follow the TEST PROCEDURE and RESULT INTERPRETATION may adversely affect test performance and/or invalidate the test result.
Results obtained with this assay, particularly in the case of weak test lines that are difficult to interpret should be used in conjunction with other clinical information available to the physician.
A high dose “hook effect” may occur where the color intensity of test band decreases as the concentration of antibodies increases. If a “hook effect” is suspected, dilution of specimens may increase color intensity of the test band.
Clinical sensitivity and specificity The HSV-2 Rapid Test Device (Whole Blood) has been evaluated with specimens obtained from a population of symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals. A commercial HSV-2 EIA test was used as comparison. The overall agreement both tests is 90%.
Precision Intra-Assay Within-run precision has been determined by using 10 replicates of negative and positive specimens. The specimens were correctly identified >99% of the time. Inter-Assay Between-run precision has been determined by 10 independent assays on the negative and positive specimens.Three different lots of the HSV-2 Rapid Test Device (Whole Blood) have been tested using these specimens. The specimens were correctly identified >99% of the time.
