A member asked:

Is it worth getting. herpes antibody test even if i don't think i've ever had a breakout?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Depends: Herpes infection can be there without breakouts. You may get the antibody test, keeping in mind that there is no cure. If your concern is genital herpes, HSV 2, it would have implications for pregnancy and transmission to your partner.
