Virus STD Panel

Our Price:
A Viral STD Panel (sexually transmitted disease) test will include testing for HIV, Herpes Simplex Virus or HSV (both types 1 and 2), IgG, and the Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) antibodies.

These diseases are caused by viruses that are passed between couples during intercourse or other sexual forms of contact. You may not even realize you have an STD unless you or your partner suddenly have symptoms or know that you've been recently exposed to an STD.

A Viral STD Panel is recommended if you suspect you've been infected through sexual contact, oral contact or skin-to-skin contact with an infected person. Generally, STDs affect a person in the genital area but at times can also affect a person in the mouth or anal area.

The first symptoms you may notice are a burning sensation during urination or painful urination. Unusual discharge from the vagina or penis is also a signal you may have been exposed to an STD. If you are experiencing itching, pain or burning around your anal area, vagina or your partner is itching or burning around his urethra opening it's important to have it checked out as soon as possible. Any sudden rash with sores or blisters in the genital area or anal area should also be examined.

If you think or even suspect you've been exposed to any of the above mentioned viruses it's important to seek treatment before the symptoms become worse. In addition, having the peace of mind that you're disease-free is critical to any sexual relationship. Early detection and treatment can prevent serious complications and help keep you from spreading the condition to your partner. If your partner has been exposed, it's important that they be treated as well.
