Dating a person with genital herpes talking kids dating after divorce
Dating With was created by Herpes Support Group Leaders to provide accurate, up-to-date info for people who have genital herpes (HSV-1, HSV-2) and their partners and families.
Genital Herpes is surprisingly common, yet most people who have it don’t even know it.
HSV-2 usually produces mild symptoms, and most people with HSV-2 infection have no recognized symptoms.
Once infected with HSV, people remain infected for life.
HSV-1 and HSV-2 are transmitted through direct contact, including kissing, sexual contact (vaginal, oral, or anal sex), or skin-to-skin contact.
HSV-2 infection is more common in women (approximately one out of four women) than in men (almost one out of five).
This may be because male to female transmission is more efficient than female to male transmission.
