I live on the east coast and I am looking to acquire a Western Blot tests for hsv 1 and 2. I have had several symptoms including itching, burning, and tingling. Unfortunately, I have been diagnosed several times with UTIs and yeast infections, but later found out all cultures were negative. I have been tested twice for hsv with a herpes select igg, but I am not happy with results seeing as I continue to have issues with no confirmed diagnosis for them. I now feel as though the only way to rule out herpes effectively is with a western blot.
Unfortunately, my doctor will not order me a western blot because he feels as though it is unnecessary with two negative igg tests. I have read on here that I can call one of the clinics and have a western blot test ordered for me. Is this true? If so, how much does the test typically cost without insurance and how do I go about this process.
Thank you for your help.
