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.

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.
