1 doctor agrees
In brief: Usually, yes
Herpes, gonorrhea, hiv, and human papilloma virus, are usually tested for in initial screening, among other things (like diabetes) during the first trimester visits.
Usually, though, it is just a herpes virus screen, which includes herpes type i and ii, rather than separating them out.
