I've called a few clinics and asked about herpes select express and immunoblot. they say they have herpes select but do not specify which ones Is there a difference? Also is this what I should have my male friend use? It has been 10 weeks since I believe he may have been infected. Also under our circumstances we must use anonymous clinics. Any advice will be appreciated.

the express test is a 20 minute test just for hsv2.

the immunoblot takes a day or two to get results back.

both have similar rates of accuracy.
