Genital Herpes

Genital herpes is caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV). The herpes virus can be passed on by having unprotected vaginal, anal or oral sex, sharing sex toys, and skin-to-skin contact. Although the symptoms of genital herpes will clear up by themselves, severe outbreaks can be treated with antiviral tablets.
