Another variant of herpes simplex infection is herpes simplex 2 (HSV2) or genital herpes.
The herpes simplex type 2 is transmitted mainly by sexual contact and therefore affects especially the mucous membrane of the sex organs. It is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases worldwide.
Herpes genitalis is mostly transmitted by sexual activity
70 to 80 percent of all cases of genital herpes are due to the type HSV2, which is almost exclusively transmitted via gender.
The herpes simplex type 1 (HSV1) is primarily responsible for head infections such as the common herpes labialis, but also causes 20 to 30 percent of all genital herpes infections.
Herpes simplex 2 infections occur when no visible symptoms are present
The infection with herpes simplex 2 is usually caused by sexual intercourse during the exchange of infected body fluids. The main cause of a herpes genital disorder is therefore also unprotected sexual intercourse with an infected partner. It should be noted that many transmissions of herpes genitalis occur when no visible symptoms are present, ie no blisters or ulcers exist. The infection with HSV1 usually takes place already in the child's age by a lubrication infection, thus e.g. By kisses or the sharing of dishes.
Oral sex can transfer Herpes to the genitals
If you carry HSV1, you can transfer herpes to the genital area during oral sex. Conversely, herpes can also be transferred from genital to oral.
