Please also keep in mind that these statistics account for genital herpes caused by the HSV-2 strain. Unfortunately, when clinicians give “standard” STD check-ups, they don’t include tests for HSV-1 or HSV-2, unless it is specifically requested.
This only exacerbates herpes’ prevalence and the ignorance around it. Many couples have a healthy sex life and still never transmit it to the uninfected partner.
People are often surprised to learn how common genital herpes (HSV-2) is.
And looking at the data, about 42 million Americans would be in for a more personal “surprise” if they got tested for it today. Read on for genital herpes statistics that may surprise you.
