Question

Genital Herpes

Is there a cure for genital herpes?

A Answers (1)

  • No. Once you have the virus, it stays in your body and there is a chance that you will have outbreaks. Medicine can shorten and stop outbreaks from happening.

    Research is underway to develop new ways to protect women from the herpes virus and prevent its spread. One large study is testing a herpes vaccine for women. Researchers are also working to make gels or creams that would kill the virus before it could infect someone.

    This answer is based on source information from National Women's Health Information Center.
