How can I avoid genital herpes?
The risk of getting genital herpes can be reduced by practicing safe sex, which means using a barrier, such as a condom, when having sex. Consistent use of condoms will reduce the risk of contracting herpes by 50%. It is best to avoid any sexual contact if either partner has an outbreak of herpes.
