Complaints and symptoms of clients with herpes

The incubation period of herpes varies between a day and one week. Genital herpes is most commonly identified by the appearance of (burning and painful) little soars. They are found on the skin and genital, oral or anal mucous membranes. These soars can be accompanied by other symptoms like pain, fever, swollen lymph nodes and a painful and or burning sensation when peeing.

Complaints and symptoms of clients with herpes

After a couple of weeks, the soars dry out and the pain will disappear. The virus however remains in your body and has the possibility to reappear. The first episode of general herpes is usually the most severe, meaning the following episodes will most often be mild.

Get tested on herpes anonymously

If you have genital herpes, the diagnosis can most often be made by visual confirmation. An official test is usually unnecessary and the results aren’t always conclusive. Do you have doubts about the presence of herpes or the type of herpes causing your infection? Then it is possible to get tested by taking a swab of the soars. A blood test isn’t useful. Because a blood test for genital herpes, caused by the virus HSV type 2, will also give a positive result if you’ve ever had a cold sore, caused by HSV type 1, or if you are unaware of being a carrier of the cold sore virus.

Results within two business days

Even if you test negative for herpes (and you don’t have this STD) it doesn’t mean you don’t have any other STDs or can’t get an STD in the future. So, if you had unprotected sex get yourself tested fully or even better of course is using protection when having sex. Check the risk factors associated with contracting genital herpes.

Treatment of herpes

If you are experiencing a severe episode of genital herpes you can start with the medication called valacyclovir. This drug is available at the OneDayClinic. It is best however to start this course as soon as possible after the first signs of an outbreak. Whether you do receive treatment, or you don’t, the virus remains in your body and cannot be cured entirely. Even though the virus lays dormant, and in this phase, doesn’t give you any visible symptoms, it remains transmittable to a new or current sexual partner.

Possible consequences during pregnancy

When you get an outbreak of genital herpes during your pregnancy it is important to tell your physician or obstetrician. Genital herpes is a potential danger for your baby. If you have a recurrence just before giving birth, the physician or obstetrician will probably decide to perform a caesarian section.

Risk factors of contracting genital herpes

After contracting genital herpes symptoms are present almost immediately. After contracting genital herpes you can transmit the disease to any of your following sexual contacts. A visual diagnosis or test can help in confirming the diagnosis. Get tested after any one of the following:

  • Had unprotected sex
  • Had protected sex. Genital herpes spreads by direct contact between your skin and the skin of your sexual partner. A condom can’t protect you entirely from contracting genital herpes. It will protect you however from getting other STDs.
  • Have been warned about genital herpes by a previous sexual partner
  • Are pregnant and suspect to have symptoms of an outbreak of genital herpes and don’t want to transfer the disease to your newborn.
  • Have any of the symptoms associated with genital herpes (see the section about complaints and symptoms associated with genital herpes).

The STD examination at OneDayClinic

We often get the question how an STD examination at our clinic works. Below you can read the steps we take to test and treat you on STD’s.

How does it go after making an appointment?

After you have made the appointment, there will be a confidential conversation with the doctor. During this interview, a number of personal questions are asked to assess which risk you have run on STDs. On the basis of these risks, the doctor gives advice about which tests should be taken in your situation. Together with you, a decision is made about which tests you ultimately want to take.

Which STD can I have?

You will be asked a number of questions: whether you have sex with men, women or with both sexes and whether oral, anal or vaginal sex has taken place. This is asked because the STD’s can cause chlamydia and gonorrhea at different locations in your body. Infections with these STD’s caused by bacteria remain local and do not just spread through your body or blood. It could be that you have contracted chlamydia in your anus and not in your throat, while you have had anal and oral sex.

What should I pay attention to prior to the test?

When making the appointment it is important to take the window phase into account. The window phase is the period between the sexual contact (possible moment of infection) and the ability to demonstrate the infection with the test. For tests on chlamydia and gonorrhea we keep two weeks after the sexual contact (on indication this may sometimes be earlier). We stay on for three months for HIV, syphilis, hepatitis B and C.

The man must not have been to the toilet for at least three hours or take morning urine with him.

Do I have to take my clothes off?

Physical examination is often not necessary. HIV, syphilis and hepatitis B and C are excluded through a blood test. Chlamydia and gonorrhea is tested in the male via the urine and the woman through a ‘selfswab’ (or with a cotton swab). If oral and anal sex has taken place, this is excluded via an anal swab or a throat swab. You can do this yourself, but you can also leave this to the doctor.

      • Urine test

The research on chlamydia and gonorrhea in men can be done with the aid of a urine sample. When you are infected, bacteria can be found, especially in the urine. In women, a selfswab is more reliable than a urine test.

      • Blood test

Syphilis, hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV can be demonstrated by a blood test.

      • Selfswab smear

With a smear, fluid is removed from the vagina. This determines the presence of chlamydia and gonorrhea. This does not hurt. Because chlamydia and gonorrhea can be found at different locations (vaginal / anal / throat), extra swabs may have to be taken. The doctor will determine in the initial interview whether this is necessary.

Do you have complaints that point to a STD? Do not wait and make an appointment for an STD test.

The treatment of an STD

Chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis can be treated with antibiotics. You can also contact OneDayClinic for this treatment. However, HIV is more difficult to treat. There are medicines to suppress these STDs and their symptoms, but not to remove the viruses from the body. OneDayClinic will guide you for further treatment and refer you to a specialist in the hospital.

When will I get the results?

If you have had an STD test, the urine, the smear or the blood will be examined in the laboratory. You can check the results online via our test result portal. Click here to check the results of your STD test. At OneDayClinic everything is completely anonymous.

Alert your partner

If you have an STD, it is important that you warn your partner(s). Warn not only your current partner, but also your former partners. They can also have the STD without having complaints. They can pass it on to their partners unnoticed again. By warning your partners, you prevent the STD from spreading or that they are faced with serious consequences because they have not been treated.
