    JBOY,

     

    I am not a doctor and can't offer any diagnosis, but the time it takes to get results from a herpes test can vary greatly.  It depends on what type of test and whether the testing is done locally or must be sent out to another clinic.  In your case, it woudl depend on what kind of health facility you visit and what their testing policies are.  I can say they are generally not available immediately.

     

    If you received results, please consider letting us know how long it took for you so that others might get an estimate.

     

    Best of luck to you!
