Blood and urine test: Urine and blood tests can detect infection with chlamydia and hsv 2. The test for chlamydia is a dna test and one for hsv 2 is to look for antibody to the virus.

STD testing: There is no such test. Herpes is most accurately tested with blood. Chlamydia and gonorrhea can be tested by urine or direct cotton swab.
