Prelib does not screen for herpes, as screening in the absence of symptoms is not recommended (unreliable tests and difficult-to-interpret results). As for HPV, it can’t be detected like other STBBIs and nor can it be treated directly.
The time required to detect a disease (commonly called the ‘window period’ in medecine) differs from one STBBI to another.
Prelib offers an assessment service for screening non-symptomatic STBBIs. If you have symptoms, lesions, or have had contact with an STBBI, an assessment by a health care professional at an in-person clinic is recommended.
