How long does it take for the symptoms of herpes to appear ?

how long after sex, does it take for herpes to show up on your body? and the same with any other std?

Thanks for writing us !

When there is an infection with herpes, it can take a month or more before symptoms will appear. The transmission of the virus can be done by direct contact (skin to skin) or indirect contact (lip balm, lipstick)

You can see the page on Herpes Simplex at Wikipedia for more details about the virus…

Best wishes,
