How to prevent genital herpes?

As a sexually transmitted infection (STI), the best way to prevent genital herpes would be sexual abstinence. However, a sexually active person can prevent it by always using condoms correctly during sex and latex dental dams during oral sex.

However, the risk of transmission of the virus is reduced, but not eliminated, with condoms, as the virus may be present in areas that condoms do not protect.

In any case, even when using a condom, sexual intercourse should be avoided from the onset of symptoms until the sores disappear.
