A 44-year-old male asked:

Woman had genital herpes outbreak on mon pubis area. That's the only area she had an outbreak. Could I get genital herpes by having intercourse with her even if I don't touch the mon pubis area?

Contact: IF you had sex with the woman, you touched the mons pubis. Now that is contact and does not guarantee you will get herpes, but it is possible.
