How long does Herpes Take to Show Symptoms

herpes show symptoms
Kind of a tricky question, here is why. Genital herpes can start to show symptoms in as little as 3 days. However, the estimated average in women is 3 to 5 days after infected with the virus. Women are more prone to show outbreaks then men in the first few weeks. Now, here is the catch, everyone reacts differently to this STI/STD. It could be a few days or a few weeks before you start having razor like burns or blister like breakout in the genital area (vaginal or penis, anal). Also, please remember a great amount of people will never even show signs or symptoms of the HSV-2 herpes virus at all. Always see your doctor for testing and treatment options.
