How to Fake a Herpes/HSV 2 STD Test

Faking a Herpes/HSV 2 test can be a really funny way to prank a friend, or a creative way to scare away unwanted attention from an over-persistent suitor! Let’s take a look at a standard Herpes/HSV 2 test and explore what all of the information means. Later on we will figure out how to change those values and create our own customized results, fake or positive!

What does a real Herpes/HSV 2 Test result look like?

The sample image above shows what a legitimate Herpes/HSV 2 test result from a professional lab looks like.

There are a few components of the test:

Test Name

This is the name of the sexually transmitted disease that is being detected. In this case, the test is searching for the virus that causes Herpes/HSV 2.


The result column will list a number. The number will coorespond to a reference interval, and indicate a negative, indeterminate, or positive result.


This column does not apply to this particular test.


This column does not apply to this particular test.

Reference Interval

For this particular test, a result of under 0.91 indicates a negative test. A result of 0.91 to 1.09 indicates an indeterminate (or unclear) result. A result greater than 1.09 indicates a positive test.


This indicates a code number referring to the lab that conducted the test. This can be any number in particular, and has no bearing on the test result itself.
