The most conclusive and accurate test is during outbreaks, where they swab the fluid in the blisters and test them for the virus. If you had genital herpes, I would probably feel differently. Like somebody else said, if you've dated at all, it's highly likely you've already dated somebody with it.

There is a good chance you already have dated someone with oral herpes, most have no idea they have it. To all the people who say they wouldn't date someone with HSV, go get the blood test, and I bet at least 1/2 of you carry it.
The next morning, I took a cab to an urgent care facility where a doctor confirmed my worst fears.
I was thinking that I'd probably never go on another date, or get a boyfriend for that matter, and I'd certainly never have sex again.

Little did I know my worries would extend far beyond that concern.
