Customer Question

Neat! Didn't know this existed. My wife has genital herpes. She told me before our marriage. I don't have any symptoms, but perhaps have it by now. She takes daily aciclovir, but thinks some sores near her anus may be a breakout. (We don't do anal intercourse.) What are my risk of whatever?
