How long can you have herpes without knowing?


It is possible to have herpes without knowing it, as many people with herpes do not experience any noticeable symptoms or only have mild symptoms that go unnoticed or mistaken for something else.

However, the virus can still be transmitted to others even if there are no visible symptoms, which is why herpes is considered a sexually transmitted infection.

It is important to note that herpes can also have noticeable symptoms, including painful sores or blisters on the genitals or mouth, flu-like symptoms, and itching or burning sensations in the affected area.

If you suspect that you may have herpes or have been exposed to someone with herpes, it is important to talk to a healthcare provider for testing and treatment options.
