Genital herpes is caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV). There are two types: 

  • Herpes simplex virus-1 (HSV-1) 
  • Herpes simplex virus-2 (HSV-2) 

Both can cause genital herpes, but it’s more commonly associated with HSV-2. 

It’s passed on through vaginal, anal, and oral sex with someone who has the infection, even when they aren’t displaying symptoms.
