How many moms out there have herpes?

My sister is convinced her sex life is over because she has herpes. I am trying to convince her that more people have it than she thinks. Answer anon if you want, but I want to show her how many more people have it than she thinks. She feels like she has leprosy or something. Thanks!

  • I have herpes. I've lived a great life and had three beautiful children since I was first infected.

    Estimates are that 45 million Americans are infected. Most people just don't go advertising the fact lol.
