We all know that when we pregnant at the beginning we get blood tests done. Therefore I need to ask. What do they test for? I want to about if they test for herpes?
I think herpes is done with an STD test, and yes they will test you for that
Blood is for disorders and your counts, like reds/whites, etc.
Yes they will test you for STDs among a million other things.
I think they test for herpes when they do the pap. Im not sure what all is done in the blood test, but they test your iron, blood type, RH factor and for some diseases.
Herpes virus isn't included in the standard prenatal panel, you'll need to ask for it.
I had a bad yeast infection and my doc thought was cylmidia or however spell it. But I didnt have anything. My doc didnt explain much and I didnt more because I was too happy that I was free of it. But makes me think she didnt test me for more than that.

This. And pap smears don't check for it either I don't believe. I think that only detects hpv, chlamydia, trich, gonorrhea, and any yeast or bacterial infections. I say that cause my OB sent me for lab work when I wanted to check for them all and I'm pretty sure its a blood draw for herpes unless you have a lesion. Its been a long time since that though so things could have changed or my memory could be flawed.
