Life is risky: Each person must decide when to accept the risk of catching genital herpes: at the friend stage, the boyfriend stage, the fiance stage, or the husband stage. No sexual activities almost assures no catching genital herpes. Condoms cover only a few important inches of the body, which means herpes can still be transmitted from skin lesions on uncovered parts of the body. Valtrex helps prevention.
