Most sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are transmitted only during sexual contact, either by skin-to-skin contact or through exchange of bodily fluids.
Using online dating sites to find perfect matches is nothing new.
There are thousands of dating websites and apps on the internet but not many dating sites for people with herpes and STDs.
We now know that HSV-1 is also the leading cause of genital herpes, due to the popularity of oral sex.
Whether or not you have noticeable symptoms of an STD, you may still have an STD.
HSV-2 can also be transmitted via genital-oral contact, so there are now many reported cases of oral HSV-2.
Most people with herpes (either HSV-1 or HSV-2) do NOT have any noticeable symptoms.
The microorganisms — bacteria and viruses — that cause STDs such as genital herpes tend to be sensitive to their surroundings and can’t survive outside the human body on a surface like a toilet seat for very long.”If you have HSV-1 (formerly only associated with Oral Herpes), you should know that most people (60-80%) already carry that particular strain of herpes which is usually acquired in childhood from kissing parents or relatives.
Only occasionally do people have noticeable symptoms.
Its still all sinking in, but overall I think I’m taking it well. As a 27 yo, I’ve been one of those dudes who thought he was invincible and that I couldn’t get an STD. most importantly, I live with my folks and don’t want to transmit Herpes to them. *********A: You can’t transmit herpes to anyone unless they are in contact with your genitals or the place where you have outbreaks.
