Dating a cancer female
At least 50 percent of sexually active men and women acquire genital HPV infection at some point in their lives.By age 50, at least 80 percent of women will have acquired genital HPV infection.When signs do occur, they typically appear as one or more blisters on or around the genitals or rectum.The blisters break, leaving tender ulcers (sores) that may take two to four weeks to heal the first time they occur.Genital HSV-2 infection is more common in women (approximately one out of four women) than in men (almost one out of five).This may be due to male-to-female transmissions being more likely than female-to-male transmission. HSV-1 and HSV-2 can be found in and released from the sores that the viruses cause, but they also are released between outbreaks from skin that does not appear to be broken or to have a sore.
So be aware when dating and know what form of herpes you have. It is estimated that 50 percent to 80 percent of the American adult population has oral herpes.In addition, daily suppressive therapy for symptomatic herpes can reduce transmission to partners.
