What are the symptoms of genital herpes between blister outbreaks?

NONE. But we know that the virus is present occasionally between attacks. Thus you may be contagious when there are no symptoms. In fact most transmission occurs from a person who does not know she carries the virus or from a known infected person during a time with no symptoms. Antiviral meds reduce the risk of infecting another person but are not 100% effective.
