Would genital herpes show up in a urine culture? I think I've been exposed.

In brief: Wouldn't show up.

Unfortunately, genital herpes would not show up on a urine culture.
There are blood antibody tests available, but they would take at least six weeks from the day of exposure even be slightly positive.
