What You Need to Know About Herpes
Herpes  is a highly contagious STD that has been around for years.

The virus continues to be a threat, alarmingly for middle-aged people.  While it seems older individuals would be exempt from sexually transmitted disease,  just because you're in your 40s, 50s, or even older, doesn't mean that you can't contract this debilitating disease.
