Statistically, 85% of the adult population of most western industrial countries are thought to have at some time in their life contracted on of the herpic viruses, ie shingles type one or two (genital herpes or "cold sores" , which are also herpes. Chickenpox is also a form of herpes. So most of us who ahve sex probably have herpies even if it doesen't show. Not all show symptoms. My partner thought that she ahd caught mine, it lasted three days and she never got it again in the last six years. Turned out later she had one of her own (different type)in a different place! In thirty years of sex protected and not so protected sex I've never passed in on.If you are careful you can minimise the risk, and if you do, well it's not the end of the world. After all it's just a rash. Use Zovirax , alternatively Aloe-vera and tea tree oil/ cream can help before and after. Diferent sex, there are lots of ways. If you stop worrying about it , this will help for a start!
