Testing for Herpes

How does one go about getting tested for Herpes? Can it be picked up even if there are no blisters? I believe there is a dormant period - how long can this be?

You can do a blood test, but the most accurate way is to take fluid from the blisters. The dormant period can be several months. There is quite a lot of information at www.herpes.com
