Rarely, a pregnant woman can pass HPV to her baby during vaginal delivery.A baby that is exposed to HPV very rarely develops warts in the throat or voice box. There is no "cure" for HPV infection, although in most women the infection goes away on its own.
Transmission can occur from an infected partner who does not have a visible sore and may not know that he or she is infected.
Nationwide, at least 45 million people ages 12 and older, or one out of five adolescents and adults, have had genital HSV infection.
Between the late 1970s and the early 1990s, the number of Americans with genital herpes infection increased 30 percent.
Typically, another outbreak can appear weeks or months after the first, but it almost always is less severe and shorter than the first outbreak.
Although the infection can stay in the body indefinitely, the number of outbreaks tends to decrease over a period of years. Results of a nationally representative study show that genital herpes infection is common in the United States.
