If she has herpes...: If a man or a woman already has herpes, he or she may get an outbreak at anytime, before, during, or after sex. These recurrence lesions develop over a day or so, which means he or she would not say the lesions occurred DURING sex, unless the sex lasted all day long. Herpes lesions coming from a brand new genital infection, may happen from 2 days after sex to about 10 days after sex.

Herpes: I do not believe so. The virus would need a open sore, crack or cut to enter the body. Could a herpes virus live on food and then brush over a open sore on someone else say for instance sharing a bite on a utensil? Yes , i believe it could be transferred.

Waxs young,wanes old: Libido "waxes"(pre-menopausally) with lubrication and desire and "wanes" post-menopausally due to a decline of testosterone which comprises 2% of women's natural hormones. Some women never notice any changes in libido as the adrenal glands are the main sources of their testosterone rather than the declining ovary post-menopausally.
