Herpes and Genital Warts Answer A64447
Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Among all the tests for herpes, the PCR test can tell you whether you have genital herpes or not even if you do not have any symptoms, as this test looks out for pieces of viral DNA in the sample taken from the lesions. For further clarification, consider discussing your doctor/infectious disease specialist.
Take care.
