Genital herpes can only be spread by sexual intercourse when the infected person has visible blisters.
Herpes can be spread from mother to baby when she gives birth.
If my partner has genital herpes and they routinely use a condom during any sexual experience, I am 100 percent protected from the virus.
You will have immediate signs of an infection if you have been exposed and contracted herpes.
After being infected with HSV, I can expect my outbreaks to decrease in frequency and severity over time.
