How long should I wait to get tested for herpes?

Usually symptoms show up 2-14 days after infection (but not always)...if you have a lesion, this can be swabbed and tested.

Herpes is largely asymptomatic so you may not show symptoms.

If you get a blood test, you should wait for 3-6 months as this gives the body time to accumulate the antibodies they test for. Otherwise, you may get a false negative result.
