In brief: Herpes

Herpes can be transmitted without visible lesions by viral shedding.
Medications can be given to lower the risk of viral shedding. Condoms are not full proof to prevent transmission of any sexually transmitted disease (std). Healthy lifestyle choices will help but aren't reliable enough to avoid transmission when a partner has a std. Shelleygiebelmd.Com.
