Herpes is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) caused by the herpes simplex viruses type 1 (HSV-1) or type 2 (HSV-2). Most genital herpes is caused by HSV-2. Most individuals have no or only minimal signs or symptoms from HSV-1 or HSV-2 infection. When signs do occur, they typically appear as one or more blisters on or around the genitals or rectum. The blisters break, leaving tender ulcers (sores) that may take two to four weeks to heal the first time they occur. 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.

Herpes Support Groups are organized groups, some grass roots and some official nonprofit or medical groups, that provide support and information for people who have been diagnosed with genital herpes. Genital herpes is a viral disease caused by Herpes simplex viruses; both herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV–1) and herpes simplex virus 2 (HSV–2) can cause genital herpes.

These groups are not sex clubs. Instead, members organize activities of their choice, such as Brunches, Hikes, Happy Hours, Ski Trips, Bike Rides, Museum Tours, Dancing, Camping, Bowling, Wine-Tasting, Comedy Shows, Billiards/Pool, Concerts, Movie Nights and you-name-it. These support groups are organized by regular members who’s ages range from 20′s – 60′s, with most between 30-50. It’s FREE and it’s FUN and you have nothing to lose.

During the 1970s, there was an increase in sexually transmitted diseases. One of the diseases that increased dramatically was genital herpes. In response, ASHA created the National Herpes Resource Center in 1979. The HRC was designed to meet the growing need for education and awareness about the virus. One of the project of The Herpes Resource Center (HRC) was to create a network of local support (HELP) groups. The goal of these HELP groups were to provide a safe, confidential environment where participants can get accurate information and share experiences, fears, and feelings with others who are concerned about herpes.

These herpes (and usually HPV) groups are not run by us.  They are run by awesome volunteers! While some groups may focus on support, others may be purely for social and dating.  Local groups are just another way to meet people in your area and are a great asset to the community!  Each group is different so please visit their website for more details.

Wish you the best
