Prevention

To prevent genital herpes infection the usage of condom must be made mandatory at all times during sexual activities.

The following methods are the sure- fire way of preventing genital herpes infection:

  • Avoid all forms of sexual contact.
  • Since that is quite difficult, indulge only in a single-partner relationship with a person who is tested negative for herpes.
  • Make condom usage mandatory during sexual activities at all times. Female condom can also be used.
  • Use only latex condoms and not animal membrane condoms.
  • Those with herpes infection without sores must tell their partner that they have the infection. For those infected, abstinence is a good choice, especially if the partner is uninfected.

About 16 percent of Americans between the ages of 14 and 49 are infected with genital herpes, making it one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases, U.S. health officials said. Maybe this is the reason that why there are more than 680,000 members on the STD dating site positive-single. com. Hope all the people take care and find love.
