Hello
My BF needs to be tested for hsv1/2. I've tested positive, and I'm sure I got it from him...he has no insurance/no pcp...I've been calling, calling and calling around for him to be tested...and nothing...the local health clinic does not perform this test....I'm at a total lost as to what to do....any advice/direction would be greatly appreciate it.

depending on where you live you may not have access to HSV blood testing. I had to go to the US (I live in eastern Canada) to get my testing done. So, keep looking for a clinic. If you do find a clinic make sure you ask for the IGG type specific blood test, the IGM test is a waste of money and time.

Try the CDC or Planned Parenthood......the local municipality public health department should be interested in a possible communicable disease.
