Hip-Hop and Genital Herpes: 48 Percent of Black Women Infected

The CDC released their findings earlier this year of the top 15 cities with the worst herpes rates in the nation. The five cities with the most herpes cases also have as high as a 40 percent infection rate for sexually active people. Not surprisingly, the District of Columbia, which has higher rates of HIV/AIDS infections than many sub-Saharan African nations, ranks very high on the list.

Herpes can be transmitted when neither partner has sores. Condoms are effective only half the time because herpes is unlike HIV. It can be transmitted by skin-to-skin contact, not just in semen or vaginal fluid.

    I tested positive for herpes type 2 approximately 6 years ago, when I was in college and had a stupid one night affair. I am sure a lot of girls will say this but I swear I never did that sort of thing. I just made mistake that one time and, suddenly, it seemed like I was going to have to live with the burden for the rest of my life.

    The worst part was feeling I could never meet guys again. After all, who wants to date a girl who has blisters around her you-know-what?

    But after someone shared this website , everything has changed. Not only was I able to eliminate all traces of the herpes virus from my system in less than three weeks, but I was also able to start dating again. I even met my soulmate and I’m so blessed to say that just last week, in front of everyone in a restaurant, he got down on one knee and proposed to me!! This program offered me the chance to be happy again, and to experience true love.
