Yes herpes is a virus.

There currently are products to help prevent transmission. However you can still catch this and there is not cure provided by "mainstream" medicine of late.

You at highest risk of catching herpes whilst your girl friend has an outbreak. Do not have sexual contact with her during an outbreak ot up to a week after wards.

Condoms, Anti-viral and several natural suppliments can help fight this virus therefore further reducing the risk of contracting the virus.

Also a change in diet can also help.

Take care and please ask anything about herpes here.

products for prevention

Hi Jacov -

don't have sex if your partner feels a tingling or itching, burning sensation at the site. Don't have sex if your partner is having an outbreak. Take a shower after (soap is supposed to kill the virus). Keep towels and bedding clean and do not share towels. Use condoms and barriers (dental dams) durning sex. After a while as you talk and build trust you can decide not to use protection if you can keep an open communication. Good Luck!

Definately read the right side bar about spreading and viral shedding. It will answer alot of your questions as to how the virus functions. Don't give up on her and kudos for coming here and educating yourself.
