  • First Genital Herpes Outbreak in Women The first genital herpes outbreak is more painful and lasts longer than recurrent genital herpes outbreaks in both men and women. 
  • If a non-infected man and woman each have intercourse with an infected partner, the woman is more likely than the man to contract a herpes simplex virus infection. 
  • Why Women are at Greater Risk with Genital Herpes Women may be more susceptible to genital herpes infections because: The genital area has a greater surface area of cells moist with body fluids (mucosal cells) than men. 
  • Genital Herpes Transmission The herpes simplex virus is transmitted during close personal contact through the exchange of saliva, semen, cervical fluid, or vesicle fluid from active lesions. 
  • Confusing Symptoms with Genital Herpes in Women Even though women may have more severe disease, they may have symptoms that are not attributed to herpes.
