More Answers to “can Genital herpes infected by blood to blood contact or with the contact of other body fluids?“Herpes simplex virus 2 (genital herpes) is NOT in a persons blood. It is only transmitted by sex (vaginal, anal, or oral) and by direct skin to skin contact with the area (like “dry humping”). There are others ways of contracting it like childbirth, but this is really rare.If herpes were in the blood I REALLY doubt the American Red Cross would allow someone with herpes to donate blood, like they do people with HIV/AIDS. According to the American Red Cross, “Chlamydia, venereal warts (human papilloma virus), or genital herpes are not a cause for deferral if you are feeling healthy and well and meet all other eligibility requirements.”http://www.redcross.org/services/biomed/0,1082,0_557_,00.html#stdAs for what happens to a person with genital herpes in the long run – absolutely nothing. Genital herpes does NOT cause sterility or any real health issues. I mean, yeah the sores can be VERY painful, especially during the first outbreak, but that’s about the only thing herpes does. It’s not deadly like HIV/AIDS or untreated syphilis. It won’t cause a person to become infertile or sterile like untreated syphilis, gonorrhea, or chlamydia can do. It doesn’t cause cancer like HPV can. HPV can cause cervical cancer in women, which is the second most common cancer in women. I have had both genital herpes and HPV for over 5 years now. I developed cervical cancer when I was 17 years old from HPV! It was one of the most emotional and physical pains I have EVER had. Honestly, I think genital herpes is one of the better STDs out there (if a person had to have one of course!). I NEVER think about having herpes. I live a great, healthy life with my fiance and I couldn’t be happier.
