Genital Infection

Among the many sexually transmitted infections, genital herpes is very common; in the US, it is estimated that one in every 5 individuals is suffering from Genital Herpes. Genital Herpes is more common in women than in men. It is a viral infection caused by Herpes simplex virus type- 1 (HSV-1) or Herpes simplex virus type-2 (HSV-2) that spreads through sexual contact. The infection caused by HSV-2 is more common than HSV-1.

Infection caused by both HSV-1 and HSV-2 do not show any signs or symptoms initially; when it shows the symptoms appear like one or more small blister around the genitals or rectum. You need to educate yourself about the ways to identify and treat Genital Herpes in order to effectively prevent it.
