Herpes is spread through skin to skin contact, so anything is possible down there…that is why condoms don’t protect you from Herpes. If you have never had an outbreak, I doubt you have Herpes. Maybe her boyfriend gave it to her. Herpes can show up quickly…or not. It depends on your own personal immune system. After six to eight days, on average, signs and symptoms of genital herpes can appear. This period between herpes transmission and the start of genital herpes symptoms is called the “incubation period for genital herpes.” In some cases, the incubation period can be as short as one day or as long as 26 days.
