Genital Herpes is an infection which is caused by HSV (Herpes simplex virus). This disease is transmitted by direct genital contact with the skin surface or from someone who is already infected. This can happen during sex which includes oral sex. Symptoms of herpes include small blisters that open up to form painful ulcers.

Genital Herpes are of two types:

           1. HSV 1

           2. HSV 2

HSV 1 has become a most common cause in the developed world but historically HSV 2 was the main cause. Also, herpes caused by HSV 1 occurs only once in a year whereas herpes caused by HSV 2 reoccurs on about four to six times per year.

Also, there are certain precautions that should be followed such as avoid sex, Avoid kissing if the cold sores are on the partner's lip area etc..
