If you think you may have contracted the herpes simplex I or II virus (HSV), you can simply walk in to STD Express Clinic located in Arlington, Virginia near Pentagon City metro station.
What can happen if I have herpes and don’t get tested?
Some herpes viruses can cause meningitis or encephalitis. Herpes encephalitis is mainly caused by HSV-I, whereas meningitis is more often caused by HSV-II. Woman who are pregnant or wish to become so risk passing the disease on to their children without proper treatment. HSV I can become HSV II and vice versa depending on where fluid contact is made, and both can be transmitted to other partners whether outbreak events like sores are present or not. All of this means it’s very important that sexually-active people test for herpes I and II every so often.
