Yes herpes is spread through skin to skin contact , so semen , vaginal discharge , and saliva don't count. The best way to prevent spreading the virus is to use protection in the bedroom and to take antiviral medications to suppress the virus. The majority of women in the U.s only break out on the outside of the vagina very rarely on the inside, so not too much to worry about there.

If you are thinking about having sex or have had sexual intercourse you should see the discussion under "disclosing, the talk" , it gives insightful information on how to tell your partner you're positive.

Hope this helps

Yes, herpes is spread by skin to skin contact, so anywhere you have a herpes outbreak, whether it's inside your vagina or on the outside ... anywhere that location on your body touches your partner's skin, there is a risk of spreading herpes. In the future, it's super important to have the herpes talk so they can know the risk. You can download the free e-book on how to have the talk here: http://eepurl.com/b4IPP


Also, these are really important handouts to get your knowledge on! :)
