Herpes sores are filled with fluids that carry the virus, and having vaginal, anal, or oral sex with someone who has genital herpes can expose you to it.

Herpes can also be contracted from an infected sexual partner who does not have visible sores, because the virus can also be released through the skin.

Once infected, the herpes virus settles permanently in the body in the nerve cells near your spine.

Each time an outbreak is triggered, the virus travels along the nerves back to the initial site of infection, causing sores to appear.

Genital herpes can occur in areas that are not covered by a latex condom.

While condoms can reduce the spread of STDs, the only way to prevent getting genital herpes and other STDs is to avoid vaginal, anal, or oral sex.

Even without symptoms, the herpes virus can still be transmitted, and you can get genital herpes from a partner who does not appear to be infected.
