Genital Herpes in Women Causes, Symptoms, Treatment

Genital herpes is a form of STD, which is caused by the herpes simplex virus (type 1 and type 2). HSV -1 can cause genital herpes in which, the infections can be caused to the mouth and lips. These are mostly found in the form of fever blisters. Genital herpes infection is mostly caused by HSV-2 and it can have many symptoms in human body or sometimes, it is found in human body without any symptom.

The sore of the disease may be tender blisters, which can break and take almost four weeks to heal. If a person has a low immunity, the viral infection can occur in other parts of the body such as eyes, and herpes can make people more infectious, who have low immunity (such as people suffering from HIV).

The second outbreak of symptoms may happen after months of first infection, but the second infection can be less severe as compared to the first infection. Herpes can stay in body without any symptoms, but it can be passed on to other person.


1. It can be caused by coming in contact with the infected person.
2. It can be passed from one person to other through open sores.
3. One can get infected without having an intercourse.
4. It can stay for long in people, who have a poor immune system and symptoms are visible in two weeks of coming in contact with the infected person. The symptoms can stay for two to three weeks.
