Question: Will I get herpes if my girlfriend has it?

Share This Genital herpes is spread from skin-to-skin contact with someone who has it — including vaginal, anal, and oral sex. Herpes can live on areas of your body that arent protected by condoms (like the butt cheeks, upper thighs, and labia), so condoms wont always protect you from herpes.

What are the chances of passing herpes?

According to a 2010 study conducted by Emily T. Martin and others, there is a high risk of herpes transmission during protected sex when one of the partners is herpes-positive. The probability reaches 50% to 70%. This is explained by the fact that Herpes is transmitted skin-to-skin or skin-to-mucosa.
