after 10 ys of faithfull marriage and 2 children (baby is 4 mths) I have just had my first attack. it can sit in your system for years before it surfaces. we don't know if my hubby has it or for that fact where it came from. I read a story the other day about a 70yr old who had her first attack after 40 yrs of faithfull marriage. my first son took almost 3 yrs to conceive but our second son only took 3 months. Niether of us showed any signs if it before now. Good luck with conceiving .
No you can't. It takes skin to skin contact. The virus lives in bodily fluids not in towels or bath water.
The virus cannot live outside the body very long-- a few seconds. It needs body fluids. Genital herpes lives in the lower spine. It can't live in the hand. Oral herpes can live in the upper spine (oral outbreaks) and lower spine (like genital herpes and spreads through oral sex). Even without outbreaks, an infected person can pass the virus. If you are having sexual relationships with a person who carries the herpes virus, even with the use of a condom and antiviral drugs, you can still get herpes. If you don't want it, don't have sexual relations with an infected person. Trust me, you can't trust other people to disclose it. Unfortunately, many people are either ashamed to disclose it or they just don't care about you.
Potentially, if there was any touching while you were together, after you dried off.
No, you would have to have skin to skin contact (close rubbing) in the genital areas. It doesn't jump from towel to towel-- it's not flees or lice, it's herpes. It seems that you are looking for out as to how you or someone got herpes. If it's genital herpes, it was sexual contact.
