Genital Herpes – Prevention And Treatment

October 29, 2009 by admin 

Genital Herpes is a viral infection characterized by outbreaks of painful sores on the genitals. Most often it spreads through sexual contact. Once infected, a person carries the virus permanently in a latent form in the nerve cells; there is no cure. An initial attack and any recurrences generally last from one to three weeks, after which the infection may go into remission for months or years. Subsequent attacks tend to be less severe, and in about one – third of cases, permanent remission follows the initial outbreak.

Most people with Genital Herpes have no symptoms. Recent studies by the centers for disease control and prevention estimate that 40 million U.S. adults are infected. Genital Herpes is highly contagious, and one partner may transmit it to another even when no visible sores or lesions are present. It is more easily transferred from men to women than vice versa; it may also be transferred to babies of infected mothers during childbirth, possibly causing blindness, retardation, or even death. Genital Herpes is also a risk factor for HIV infection.


Avoid sexual contact if symptoms are present in either partner. Latex condoms during sexual intercourse reduce the risk of transmission, but they are not foolproof.

The treatment

Combining conventional and alternative therapy is one of the surest ways in prevention and treatment for Genital Herpes.
