Having oral herpes doesn't protect an individual from catching genital herpes. HSV-1 is very common, seem there is no protective barrier when kissing occurs. The human body usually weakens herpes. Therefore, most individual's who carry the herpes antibodies don't have outbreaks or show symptoms of the virus. The chance of catching genital herpes is unknown. The Center for Disease Control (Federal government, and research doesn't provide a fixed chance). In many cases herpes isn't detected, seem the body weakens the virus.

However, it's proven that about 16% of sexually active adults carry HSV-2 antibodies, which is usually associated with genital herpes. If you use a lubricated latex condom, if sex doesn't occur during outbreaks or if symptoms are present, the chance of catching genital herpes could be as low as a per percent per a year.
Myself and the Center for Disease Control don't recommend taking the herpes blood test. The herpes blood test doesn't tell us if the virus is oral or genital herpes. If the herpes antibodies are weak herpes may not be detected. It's possible to get different blood test results each time a person is tested. Once an individual test positive for herpes s/he carries the antibodies for life. The most effective way to be diagnosed with herpes is for a doctor to see outbreaks. The herpes antibodies may appear on a blood test a couple of months after infection.

Hepatitis C is a virus that could cause inflammation of the liver. In the U.S 3.2 million people have Hepatitis C. The virus typically causes so few symptoms; most of them don't know they have the disease. In some cases it could take years before an individual with Hepatitis C is placed on medication or shows symptoms of the infection. If a person has o STDs the chance of catching or spreading Hepatitis C to a partner is low.


You get the hepatitis C virus from the blood or body fluids of an infected person.

It can be spread by:

• Sharing drugs and needles
• Getting stuck by an infected needle
• Having sex, especially if you have an STD, an HIV infection, several sex partners, or have rough sex.
• Being stuck by infected needles
• Through birth from a mother to a child
• Sharing personal items that may contain blood such an nail clippers, toothbrush or a razor

Hepatitis C is not spread through contaminated food, water or by using eating utensils. The virus can’t spread through kissing or sharing personal items that don’t contain blood or by casual contact.


The majority of individuals with Hepatitis C don’t experience any signs or symptoms of the virus. If liver damage occurs the following symptoms may occur.

Symptoms of hepatitis C include:

• Jaundice (a condition that causes yellow eyes and skin, as well as dark urine)
• Stomach pain
• Loss of appetite
• Nausea
• Lethargic
• Temperature

Hepatitis B is a serious disease caused by a virus that attacks the liver. The virus, which is called hepatitis B virus (HBV), can cause lifelong infection, cirrhosis (scarring) of the liver, liver cancer, liver failure, and death.


In most cases, hepatitis B causes limited infection. Usually people over age five manage to fight off the infection successfully within a few months, developing an immunity that lasts a lifetime (this means you won't get the infection again).

If you are infected with hepatitis B for more than six months, you are considered a carrier, even if you have no symptoms. This means that you can transmit the disease to others by having unprotected sex, exposing blood or open sores to another person, sharing needles or syringes. Being diagnosed with HIV increases an individual’s chance of catching hepatitis B by over 50 times.


Symptoms of acute infection (when a person is first infected with hepatitis B) include:

• Jaundice (yellowing of the skin or whites of the eyes and/or a brownish or orange tint to the urine)
• Unusually light-colored stool
• Fever
• Unexplained fatigue that persists for weeks or months
• Gastrointestinal symptoms such as loss of appetite, nausea, and vomiting
• Abdominal pain
• Frequently there will be no symptoms, and it is only discovered in a blood test

Often, symptoms occur one to six months after exposure. An estimated 30% of those infected do not show typical signs or symptoms.

Over one million two hundred thousand people in the Untied States are living with HIV. HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is a virus that attacks the immune system, the body's natural defense system. Without a strong immune system, the body has trouble fighting off diseases. When HIV progresses it could cause AIDS. AIDS is a more advanced stage of HIV. AIDS is known as Acquired immunodeficiency Syndrome.


Symptoms may appear from a few days to several weeks after a person is first infected. The early symptoms usually go away within 2 to 3 weeks.

After the early symptoms go away, an infected person may not have symptoms again for many years. After a certain point, symptoms reappear and then remain. These symptoms usually include:

• Swollen lymph nodes
• Extreme tiredness
• Weight loss
• Fever
• Night sweats
• Memory loss
• Prone to sickness such as the flu, anomia and other infections


HIV infection is caused by the human immunodeficiency virus. You can get HIV from contact with infected blood, semen, or vaginal fluids.

• Most people get the virus by having unprotected sex with someone who has HIV.
• Another common way of getting it is by sharing drug needles with someone who is infected with HIV.
• The virus can also be passed from a mother to her baby during pregnancy, birth, or breast-feeding.
• HIV can spread by sharing needles with an infected drug user

HIV doesn't survive well outside the body. So it can't be spread by casual contact like kissing, sharing drinking glasses, shaking hands or hugging an infected person. With proper medical treatment research shows that there is over a 99% chance a female with HIV will have a healthy child.


In the United States about half of sexually active adults will come in contact with HPV. There are over three dozens strains of HPV that could cause genital warts. Clinic research indicates if genital wart outbreaks haven’t occur for two or more years there is a 90% chance the human body completely cleared the virus.

HPV vaccines are offered to males and females age 26 and under who don’t have HPV. The vaccine is a series of three shots given during a six-month duration. The vaccine reduces the chance of getting cervical cancer from HPV by 90% and cervical cancer by 70%. The HPV vaccine


Often, people don't have any symptoms and the HPV infection goes away without treatment. Some types of HPV can cause health problems and certain types of cancer.


Certain strains of HPV are associated with cervical, vulvar, vaginal, penile, and anal and oropharyngeal cancers (cancer of the throat). You can get HPV by having vaginal, anal, or oral sex with someone who has the virus. It is most commonly spread during vaginal or anal sex. HPV can be passed even when an infected person has no signs or symptoms.According to the Center for Disease Control strains 6 and 11 cause 90% of genital wart outbreaks.

Genital warts often appear in clusters. The warts are usually the same color as the skin, but could appear pinkish. The warts could look flat or have a cauliflower texture. Genital warts may disappear without treatment. It could take several cases to fully remove the warts.

Herpes simplex virus is known as herpes. The virus is categorized into two types of herpes. HSV-1 is usually oral herpes and HSV-2 is usually genital herpes. There is no cure for the herpes simplex virus. Once a person has the virus, it remains in the body for a lifetime. However, taking medications like Valtrex and Acyclovir could help manage the symptoms of the herpes simplex virus.


Herpes simplex virus typically appears as a blister or as multiple blisters on or around affected areas. The blisters usually form on inside the mouth, on the lips, around the lips, genitals, or rectum. The blisters break, leaving tender sores.

Most commonly, HSV-1 causes sores around the mouth, inside the mouth and on the lips (sometimes called fever blisters or cold sores). HSV-1 can cause genital herpes, but most cases of genital herpes are caused by HSV-2. With genital HSV-2 infections, the infected person may have cold sores or a rash around the genitals area. Although HSV-2 sores may occur in other locations, these sores usually are found below the waist including the rectum


HSV-1 is transmitted through oral secretions. The virus is likely to spread by coming in direct oral contact with active sores on the skin. The virus is likely to spread through kissing. Once herpes hits air the virus dies almost instantly. The chance of catching herpes from sharing only personal items is almost non-existent.

A person usually gets a genital HSV-2 infection during sexual contact with someone who has a genital HSV-2 infection. An individual could catch oral HSV-2 by performing oral sex on a partner who has genital HSV-2. HSV-2 is responsible for oral herpes at least 5-10% of all HSV-2 cases.

HSV-1 and HSV-2 can be spread even if sores are not present. Herpes could still surface the skin if there are no active symptoms of herpes. A partner may come in direct skin-to-skin contact with the virus seem a condom doesn’t cover the entire genital region.

Herpes could be fatal to an infant. Government research indicates a mother has over a 99.9% chance of having a healthy infant with proper medical treatment. About 85% of the cases when an infant is born with herpes, the virus is passed to the infant during childbirth. If a mother has genital herpes outbreaks during the six to nine month range of her pregnancy a C-section is often needed.
