Many people see genetal herpes as the end of their social and sexual lives when it doesn’t have to be. This article will state the types of genetal herpes and, hopefully, let you know you aren’t alone.
According to WebMD, approximately 20 percent of the adults in America have genetal herpes. This virus WILL change how you interact with your partner but it doesn’t have to end all contact. You first need to know which herpes virus you have and how to protect yourself and your potential partner during intimacy.
Genetal herpes is most commonly caused by the herpes simplex type 2 virus but more cases of herpes simplex virus type 1 are showing up. The increase of the herpes simplex virus type 1 in genetal herpes can probably be attributed to the increase in oral sex between partners.
Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV1) is the virus that is most commonly associated with oral herpes. This virus affects approximately 80 percent of the American population according to WebMD. Outbreaks are often referred to as ‘cold sores’ or ‘fever blisters’ and the virus is extremely contagious when blisters are showing. Physical contact spreads the virus during an outbreak so having oral sex just as an outbreak is starting and before the blisters show could transmit the infection to your partner’s genital area.
Herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV2) is most commonly associated with genetal herpes but it can be spread to the mouth and anal during sex.
If you aren’t in a relationship, the only way to ensure both you and your potential partner are free of herpes or any other sexually transmitted disease is to be tested. Using condoms or mutual masturbation are two additional ways or reducing your risk of getting a sexually transmitted disease such as genetal herpes.
While there is no cure for genetal herpes but there is a way to naturally control herpes. I recommend you check out Dr. David Hogg, a naturopathic doctor, who has created a treatment that allows his patients to live herpes free naturally. Maybe the information he offers will allow you to naturally control herpes too.Disclosure of Material Connection
