Signs herpes outbreak is coming

You’ve likely heard before just how prevalent the herpes virus is, but new estimates by the World Health Organization published this week state that 67% of people under age 50 have herpes simplex virus type 1 worldwide. The numbers vary based on location and gender, with the highest rates in Africa, the lowest in the Americas, and more females than males carrying the infection in the Americas and Europe. The WHO estimates that 4% of the world’s under-40 population has genital HSV-1, including 18% of males in the Americas, the population with the highest prevalence.
Genital herpes also can be hard to spot and is transmittable even in the absence of symptoms, so it’s important for you and any new partners to get tested.


While it’s important that we all continue to be as safe as possible, knowing how common this virus is can at least put your mind at ease if you already have it (or are worried about contracting it).
HSV-1 is the kind that typically causes cold sores on the mouth, though it can also cause genital herpes. 39% of males in the Americas were found to have HSV-1, which means that if your partners are male, chances are at least one of the last three people you’ve kissed had herpes.
When you include both HSV-1 and HSV-2 (the latter being the more common type that causes genital herpes) the number of males under 40 in the Americas with genital herpes is around 20-26%.


If either of you have the virus, experts recommend you always use condoms to help limit the odds of transmitting it (though this won’t completely eliminate skin-to-skin contact), and there are prescription medications you can take to help suppress outbreaks too.
