How many outbreaks a year do people with genital herpes have?
- AlliLv 71 decade agoFavorite Answer
People who have symptoms average five outbreaks per year during the first few years. Most have fewer outbreaks after that. The pattern of recurrent outbreaks—how often genital herpes infections return and how long outbreaks last—varies greatly. Some people have many outbreaks each year while others have only a few or none at all.
