There Is A New Genital Herpes Post By Express STD Testing

Genital herpes is a common infection and the best way to know if someone is infected is to get tested Express STD Testing Provides genital herpes testing services and genital herpes information.

According to the site, “Genital herpes refers to a sexually transmitted disease caused by the herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) or herpes simplex virus type 2. Normally, genital herpes is caused by herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2). However, there are increasing cases of HSV-1 causing genital herpes as a result of oral sex. When genital herpes symptoms appear, they include lesions or sores on the genitals, upper thigh, and anus. There are no conclusive reports that show how many people are living with genital herpes. This is based on the fact that the blood tests used to screen for the herpes virus will not show where the virus is in the body.”

They also provide statistics involving genital herpes, “According to the CDC, there are 776,000 new HSV-2 infections every year in the United States. However, statistics don’t show how many of these cases are oral or genital herpes. When genital herpes symptoms appear, they do so after 2 to 12 days of initial exposure. The symptoms appear as blisters on the genitals or the rectum area. You can contract genital herpes from bodily fluids which include blister or sore fluids, herpes lesions fluid, saliva, vaginal fluid, and semen. This means that genital herpes can be transmitted through unprotected oral sex, vaginal sex, and anal sex. The problem is that condoms will not protect you from herpes since they will not cover all the parts that might be affected by the virus.”
