Question: Is it harder for a man to get herpes?

The general rate of transmission of a person who has had herpes to their regular partner is about 10 percent per year, but the annual rate rises if the infected partner is a male. Unfairly, the female partner has a 20 percent chance of becoming infected, while the male partners risk is less than 10 percent.

Is herpes worse for males or females?

Both men and women can get genital herpes. The disease can be transmitted in nonsexual ways (say, if you touch a cold sore and then your genitals or anus) and also through vaginal, anal, or oral sex. Symptoms of genital herpes tend to be worse in women.
