So she has genital herpes and will always have it.

There is no cure as of right now.

There is always a risk of transmission with unprotected sex with her

However, you cannot get it by kissing.
you can get it by unprotected oral sex too. With you being the donor. Her the recipient of this.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
