What Is Herpes?
One of the most common sexually transmitted diseases in the United States, herpes can be transmitted without anyone knowing. It's most likely to be passed on when an active herpes infection is occurring, but the only way to be totally safe is to practice safe sex or abstain altogether. In this book, readers find out all about the herpes virus, how it's transmitted, what an infection is like, and how to cope if one does contract it. Inclusive language and content aim to reach all teens, and practical advice on handling conversations with potential partners, parents, and medical professionals makes this a must-read.
