Herpes is not a blood born virus and is not passed through body fiulds, such as sperm or blood, it is a skin to skin contact virus, meaning you have to come into contact with the infected area with your skin in order to contract it. Women who have herpes if active can pass the virus to their child during delivery, but if the doc is aware they will and can take precautions to elimate that. herpes is not passed during conception or pregnancy... take care FYI herpes can be passed when no symptoms are present so use precautions. You can ******** the herpes handbook for more infor from the web...
