HSV: Pap smear is a screening test to cancer of the cervix. Herpes will lye dormant in a spine nerve ganglion until activated. You can get blood work which will confirm the infection and the specific virus. 80% of infections have no symptoms. Current recommendation is suppressive therapy and condoms. Follow up with gyn for management.
