Genital Herpes - No Symptoms But A Potent Carrier
Genital herpes - A sexually transmitted virus that leads to blisters on or near the genitals or rectum that opens into painful sores taking a long period to heal. As time passes outbreaks may be less severe and for short period.

According to U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, genital herpes is an infected virus that may not show symptoms and even cause serious infection in babies born to mothers with this condition. It may infect even our sexual partner that can be prevented by the use of condoms. Even though condoms acts as a barrier in reducing the risk of spreading the disease it can still spread if the condoms do not cover the sores present in that area.

Although there are certain medications to control the outbreaks of the disease there no such curing method still identified. According to CDC the only best way to prevent the infection is avoid sex with the infected partner.

When I dont have a sore she cannot get it? If I find I have it can I still have a Family? Will I transmit it everytime I have se x or is it only during a breakout?
Is it best to see a skin doctor? Does A Standard STD Test Include HSV2 ? Thank You

I just found out that I am a carrier and I am surly feeling the same as others whohave found out... lost, disgusted, feeling that I am alone.. But the question I have if I am just a carrier would I spread it to the person that I was currently seeing b4 i found out? I have had no signs of anything

I think my boyfriend is a carrier. I would appreciate any information. I seem to have a constant breakout and he never has eny simptoms. My Dr. has confirmed that he is the source for my infection.

It is irresponsible to post opinions about herpes without mentioning the fact that herpes cannot be transmitted between outbreaks. Herpes infection is not possible after herpes lesions have completely healed.
