The information on this site is written to the high standards required by The Information Standard. This means that all medical statements about genital herpes are referenced – often from the guidelines written by doctors who are experts in genital herpes.
If you read something different on another website, it is wrong. This may just be because it is not up to date or maybe they are copying other (equally poor) website.
Read the ‘Frequently Asked Questions‘ page carefully – the answers to (almost) everything are there. Very useful is the section on transmission goes into detail about “when my partner already has the other type of herpes simplex virus”.
