Hi,
Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted disease caused by the herpes simplex viruses type 1 (HSV-1) or type 2 (HSV-2), which are found in and released from the sores that the viruses cause. Transmission can also occur from an infected partner who does not have a visible sore and may not know that he or she is infected.  Visual inspection, blood tests and obtaining sample from the sore and testing it may help rule this out.

Best regards.
