Description

Herpes - sores on male sex organ Genital herpes

The signs of herpes appear about 2-10 days after sexual contact with an infected person.

These include:

  • itching/burning-feeling in the genital area
  • water blisters (vesicles) or open sores
  • discharge of fluid from the vagina.
Herpes sores heal after 3-4 days but often recur. Treatment relieves pain and discomfort but cannot prevent recurrence. A woman with herpes may infect her newborn at childbirth causing blindness or mental retardation.

Women over 40 attending sexual health clinics: lessons for vulval services
Thu, 30 Oct 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | European Journal of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Biology
Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) have risen in the over-40 age group [1] but health promotion is targeted at the younger population. Many infections may be asymptomatic, including HIV, syphilis, chlamydia and gonorrhoea [2]. Local data from the North East of England from 2012 showed that 37% of women newly diagnosed with HIV were over the age of 45, with 54% diagnosed late with a poorer prognosis. Women coming out of long-term relationships and entering new sexual relationships may not consider the risks of sexual infection or the need for condoms, due to having a long-acting reversible contraceptive (LARC), or sterilisation.
