I have had a risk exposure to herpes 12+ weeks ago via oral-anal oral-vaginal sex (performed by me) and
oral (performed on my penis).
I have been looking for a conclusive test (so as to help me get on with my life) and found a private clinic that is offering a PCR based test.
1. Is the PCR test same as the DNA test?
2. How accurate or conclusive are the PCR and DNA tests?
3. Are these tests generally recommended for Herpes?
4. At 12+ weeks, is it too early to get the PCR & DNA tests i.e. should i wait for 16 weeks to be past instead?
Many Thanks in advance for answering my questions. Appreciate if answers can be provided separately to each of the questions above.
