If you have been recently diagnosed or if you are just curious, start researching now. The more information you know about a subject, the less frightening it is. Use coping strategies for a happier life.

Genital herpes or Herpes Simplex-2 is a member of a family of diseases and illnesses that include chicken pox, shingles, and mononucleosis. The cold sores that people find around the mouth and nose are from Herpes Simplex-1, the cousin of genital herpes. The two diseases are similar, yet very different. A highly contagious viral infection, herpes is not dangerous or life threatening, but causes emotional trauma and is an ongoing nuisance. Herpes is transmitted from person to person through intimate contact, oral, genital, or anal. Kissing, sharing towels, or touching infected areas and then touching your own body can also pass on the infection. Women with genital herpes may have breakouts deep in the vagina where the open sores cannot be seen or felt. Someone with herpes may have breakouts deep in the vagina where herpes is at their most contagious when the sores are visible, however an infected person may be contagious at any time. A person without infection has a 75% chance of contracting herpes during intimate contact with someone who harbors the infection.

Dont read this book.

I never felt more shame about having herpes as I do now since I 've read this book. The book briefly talks about how to talk to a partner. It is definately not worth the read or money.
