Usher

Sandrarose.com readers were divided over the issue of contracting or transmitting herpes while wearing condoms. Condoms do not prevent the spread of herpes because herpes is spread via skin-to-skin contact. But the risk of contracting herpes is a lot less if men wear condoms during sex.

According to recent studies, wearing condoms decreases the risk of herpes by 30%.

The study showed that men who wore condoms 100% of the time during sex contracted the virus 30% of the time. That means 70% of the men were herpes-free.

Even if a carrier is not experiencing an outbreak, the skin on the genitals, thighs and buttocks constantly sheds the virus. Wearing a condom won’t prevent transmission because, in some cases, condoms don’t cover the whole penis shaft.

Even when a carrier is asymptomatic (showing no signs or symptoms) he can still transmit the virus while wearing a condom.

Herpes is not usually fatal but it can be annoying, painful, and disruptive to your daily life.

What causes Genital Herpes?

Genital herpes can be caused by herpes simplex 1 or 2. But typically HSV-1 causes genital herpes via oral sex. The infection can be spread through vaginal, anal, or oral sex with someone who is infected — even when they have no outbreaks (no signs or symptoms).

What causes a cold sore?

Cold sores (oral herpes) are usually caused by herpes simplex 1 (HSV-1). Most infected adults contracted HSV-1 during their children. Children are infected with HSV-1 when they are kissed by parents or family friends who are infected.

How can I reduce my risk of getting herpes?

According to the CDC, the best way to prevent STDs is to not have vaginal, anal, or oral sex. Single men and women should practice celibacy until you are in a committed relationship or married.

Can herpes be cured?

Herpes is caused by a virus. There is no cure for any virus, therefore there is no cure for herpes. However, there are medicines that can prevent or shorten outbreaks. Speak with your doctor or practitioner about which anti-viral medication is best for you.

Should I use Valtrex and condoms together?

Valtrex is an anti-viral medication used in the management of herpes simplex and herpes zoster (shingles). Using Valtrex and condoms together greatly reduces the risk of STD or STI transmission.

Speak to your doctor or practitioner about side effects of Valtrex.

    Well, I was married when I got it from my now ex-husband, so that doesn’t mean diddly squat. When I met my now husband, I had to tell him before we were intimate. I was so ashamed.

  • stav

    From the readers post I read regarding the initial post, the majority of your readers seemed to be educated enough to know condoms do not protect against this STD!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The point of the post is wearing condoms reduces the risk.

  • Oh Tommie

    Yes….she is the damn shade queen! ??

  • stav

    How many people were tested, and where was the infected persons outbreak? These studies are not very broad , not enough people in the study to attain accurate numbers, and they didn’t state where the outbreak was for the infected. Apparently that study was only for those with outbreaks on their sex organs, what about outbreaks that are not directly on the sex organ? What did the study show for that? Yeah herpes on fingers for starters!https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a913c61c93d64297f3a3bdcc7a0bfb4034ac0398461c4038685b6643b3eee396.png

    “Children are infected with HSV-1 when they are kissed by parents or family friends who are infected.”

    When he was a baby, an adult relative was about to fed my nephew from her spoon, when I intervened. I told her that children shouldn’t share eating utensils or cups with adults, and no kissing on the lips! I hurt her feelings, but not on my watch!

  • dontgetblocked

    There’s nothing appealing about Usher anymore. He blamed Tameka for their divorce and took the kids. He’s a jerk who deserves everything he’s getting.

  • On the radar….

    Yes, I did and I couldn’t watch anymore ??

  • BrittBrat2005

    Also when your child when you get Chicken pox it consider as VZV low herpes its already in our system when we younger thats why they tell you to make your child stay at home when he/she get chicken pox because its a low herpes virus that can be spread from child to child. It stays in your body over time. If you so happen to get it again which mostly happen when your older in 50s its Shingles, Herpes zoster (shingles) occurs when the virus becomes active again. Over 90% of the world then had VZV herpes.. So is chicken pox herpes? Yes, in the sense that it is caused by a herpes virus. BUT YES I HATE WHEN PEOPLE KISS BABIES, SPECIALLY WHEN ITS NOT YOUR OWN CHILD!!!

  • dontgetblocked

    What if this person touches a door and here I come after him. Or worse. He picks up a serving spoon at a buffet bar. Food for thought.

  • Allihave2say

    I really believe his wife released this court record in preparation for her divorce. We’ve all read the stories on blogs of Usher skinning and grinning with women around the globe who aren’t his current wife.

  • Allihave2say

    Just imagine all those times he was on stage grabbing his junk and people thought that meant he was on fire for them LOL.

  • Allihave2say

    If Majic “I lied about having HIV” Johnson can overcome his admission Usher can too.

  • stav

    Exactly! That fake study she posted didn’t cover that, not all outbreaks are on genitalia, so condoms will only reduce risk if the outbreak is directly on the genital . She or the study needed to show the percentage of outbreaks that’s not on sex organs.

  • Yardgirl

    Good for you!! A news report this week talked about a newborn that died after being kissed by an adult who had meningitis!!! They checked both parents and they are clean so it was someone who came to visit. Them damn white people kiss babies, dogs, every damn thing!! Now that baby is dead. So sad.

  • Allihave2say

    If Grace was still with him after seeing all the pics of him traveling, surfing and yucking it up with women who aren’t Grace. I always wondered if he convinced Tameka to give up her kids and her husband to be with him then took their kids too by saying she lost custody of the others. I always knew Usher was shady asf.

  • the guest

    Thank you. I have been very strict with my children about not sharing utensils with anyone including my husband and I as parents.

    I never believed in sharing utensils or taking a sip or a taking bite of someone’s food. So low, ghetto and dangerous. Get your own darn serving. And can’t stand adults who try to guilt children into sharing their food or beverage.

    I teach my kids that sharing utensils, food, and drinks is not the way to bond, feel close to someone, or fit in. I know I went on about this but it’s a serious peeve of mine.

  • leapyearpisces

    I got two strains of chicken pox when I was in 4th grade. Lucky me right????? I caught it from my then bff at school and then at the SAME TIME FROM my 3 year old cousin, because my parents subscribed to the theory of if a child has chicken pox, go ahead and put YOUR CHILD around that child, so they (the child – me,), can”get it over with”. The end result, because I caught 2 different strains, from 2 different people, I had double chicken pox, and I was out of school for almost a MONTH!!!, and at 41 years old, I still carry scars. Yes, at 11 years old, I had chicken pox blisters in my private areas, and to add insult to injury, I got shingles at 22 years old, and the doctor said that resulted of my SEVERE case of chicken pox, but that ACTUALLY ended up being a blessing that we can talk about for another day.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

  • leapyearpisces

    Yes, and the only reason she told me was because she came over , and she had these oozing blisters right in the middle of her forehead, right in the part between her nose, and she told me, and she said it was HSV-2, Genital herpes, and her mom said she probably got it from her hoe ass daddy (HER WORDS)from kissing her as a baby, and the spot is right where people would kiss a baby- at the upper bridge of the nose. She was soooooooooo embarrassed. :-(.

  • Olga Summer

    STOP!! ?? my silly ass just googled it just to see if Google would be that petty

  • hottlanta

    That doesn’t mean she is supposed to kiss her ass. Usher could have gotten those kids someone else. As you can see her uterus is not the only one out there. It is a lot we don’t know. His mom was also his manager she can only protect him from so much the rest is up to him and he mad the decision to have sex with those women. Her son having herpes is not a reflection on her and I am quite sure she told him to wear a condom. Parents tell their son’s to wear condoms and tell the girls to say no.

  • Vonn

    Wasn’t there a peen pic of Usher floating around that looked like a burned hot dog on a grill?

  • Vonn
  • hottlanta

    The courts awarded him the kids because he was the better parent. Tameka first husband had custody of the kids he had by her as well. I am glad the kids are with their father instead of in the foster system being taken care of by strangers. If he didn’t want to take care of his kids because Tameka was deemed unfit we would be blasting him for not manning up to take care of his kids and allowing foster care to take care of his responsibilities. Tameka ain’t no angel because she was fooling around with Usher while she was married to her first husband and she left him to be with Usher. Her first husband has since married again and has another baby with someone else. So I guess that is why Tameka is without her husbands and her kids because she’s a jerk and deserves everything she is getting.

    Hey Sandra, when we get out of Usher’s crotches, we need a post on a summation of “President Trump’s Failures”since Mc Cain went rogue and sunk the Republican’s demonic “skinny health care repeal” and Scaramoochi’s unhinged vulgar language filled interviews, and the heartless firing of Preibus by tweet. Oh and you can add the head of Boy Scouts apologizing for Trump’s inappropriate political speech to children where he cursed and made thinly veiled hints about sex on yachts. If you want to be ultra messy you can add Scaramoochi’s wife has just filed for divorce and one of the major issues she is citing as the cause is his new job with Trump, whom she despises.

  • cottonscandyheary

    I dont know where you getting your info from but Tameka and her first husband had joint custody and she agreed to it because they where older. She got with Usher while going through a divorce from her first husband. Second of all She shares joint custody with Usher he just have primary custody of them. It was stated the minute they left court after that. Usher is a homewrecker he knew Tameka was not divorced yet, just like he fucked Tameka brides made and he has other women he is cheating on his current wife with. Usher mama is a dirty bitch and now she has to deal with her son bringing shame on her and now people are seeing how low down he was while he was with Tameka. Tameka not only use to style Usher but she did work for Patti Labelle and she always spoke highly of her. Usher mammy cannot talk, since she allowed Usher at the age of 12 years old to hangout with Diddy and diddy had him sleeping with all kinds of hoes and shit.

  • cottonscandyheary

    She had that diease from the time she started screwing Usher while he was married to Tameka. His current wife was one of his mistresses. Karma a bitch and I hope Tameka didnt get his diease.

  • cottonscandyheary

    Grace did the same thing to Tameka. That low down dirty biotch only with Usher for his money, you know damn well she got that diease to. Tameka need to be worried that her kids might catch it.

  • Ajavee

    Wow

  • hottlanta

    I saw a reporter mention that to her during an interview(because she was on television trying to act like the good parent with Usher) that her first husband had custody of her kids and she had taken a test and the test proved that she was mentally unstable. She was saying she is gonna take the test again because it was wrong. His mother removed him from the Diddy situation when she found out what was going on. He could have been with a preacher and done the same thing. You point means moot. Usher knew Tameka wasn’t divorced as if he raped her to make her come to him. They are both grown. He is not responsible for her marriage, she is, because she knew Usher was with Chili as well. That is what the song Confessions is about. They were both messing around. It seems that women get all up in arms when a woman has a kid and if a man has money they say that is why he got the kids and overlook everything else. She ain’t no mother Theresa, She should get pregnant again by someone who is poor so she knows he can’t use the funds to take the kids away from her. It was laughable she was trying to get the kids again when it was an accident at the home saying nannies where taking care of the kids when she left nannies to take care of the kids when she flew off the Brazil for butt lift. I don’t care and I not emotionally invested who Usher screws he is not screwing me. It is all about the money with Tameka. She enjoyed the first class ride with Usher while dating him, then you marry him all of a sudden it becomes a problem. She thought she could have it both ways.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    He had it since 2009 and they had sex in 2017…..

  • Kayke

    He had genital herpes that he was aware of since 2009. Not telling the people you sleep with, puts them at risk and most importantly takes away their choice. He should pay for his dishonesty and attempt to govern other people’s lives.

  • Fire & Ice

    Sick ain’t it!?!? Some people will sell their soul for some money

  • Fire & Ice

    I agree with you. I’m sure she’s a bit much, but I still believe he railroaded her. It’s not far fetched, because he has the financial means to do so, and being a huge star helped.

    Amen

  • BlackGirls EatGreen

    The American Psychiatric Association has made a ground breaking decision to allow their members to make public there assessments of Donald Trump mental state. After, much consideration, the Country’s leading psychiatrists have deemed Donald Trump to such a danger in the Office of the Presidency that he meets the criteria that makes them morally and professionally beholden to warn the American People. So basically, we have a President who would not pass a basic mental health eval. Let that sink in. We need a medical minute on this. This has NEVER happened before in the history of the American Psychiatric Association.

    That pic tells it all…SMDH intense itch and scratch

  • Allihave2say

    Yep! Bonita Appleburn is smart. She knows ALL Usher’s business because she works for him. She will scream emotional distress, alienation of affection, public humiliation etc. The weird thing is they asked Tameka on social media if she had it but not his current wife…the plot.

  • Allihave2say

    Hmmm…interesting. SM asked Tameka if she’s infected but not Bonita Appleburn. It’s like they’ve forgotten he’s married to her.

  • Allihave2say

    Whelp Usher is mean too. He’s the one spreading herpes not me…I sawry that I not sorry.

  • Allihave2say

    Usher is truly a narcissistic loser. He did all that posing and public shaming on Tameka and now this. I really believe he convinced her to give up her 1st kids to be with him, then took the next.
    We gone talk about Majic another day. When I was in college, there were some theories and discussions back then (don’t start calculating my age).

  • Jen_no_juice

    Most likely

  • Rayne

    Lmao

  • Coy little wink

    Turn up for me Sandra!

  • TheOwley

    Thanks Sandra. I think the issue centered around legalities, disclosure, and responsibility to protect oneself. The fact that the herpes is predicted to have more infected in any demographic than less in the future is a concern. People like Usher will continue to infect because the gravity is not like HIV, just herpes right. Some objected to critics of Usher and equated that to stigmatizing the disease leading to no disclosure. If you disclose you have it = no sex = to you stigmatizing the person. It’s like disclosing you are transgender = no sex = you discriminating against the person. Your feelings and body be damned.
    Did you ever post the gate tape from Venus’ crash. I don’t remember but although it exculpates her about running the red light, the family still wants her to pay up.

  • Allihave2say

    How does she deserve them? Grace too was sleeping with Usher while he was married to Tameka and infecting Tameka’s former best friend.

  • hottlanta

    I went running last night wearing my spandex tights and started sweating/itching I felt like I needed to scratch. I thought about this picture and I said no way.

  • Miami8981

    One more thing, Mrs. Curious. Someone mentioned on one of these post that these people have PR people watching out for whenever their names are mentioned on blogs and social media. It very well could be that I did Ersher a favor by mentioning that his image and name popped up on Google yesterday when Googling green discharge. It’s an absolutely true story. It caught me off guard because it wasn’t what I was expecting to see. But his people may have seen my comments or someone else’s comments and contacted Google to remove his image when Googling green discharge. Like I said and I would say it in a court of law if I had to, I Googled it yesterday on July 28, 2017 and his name and image popped up. It is what it is. Again, no reason to lie.

  • Kayke

    I don’t know as I wasn’t there however, that is what the claim is. For some reason, I can’t imagine many would still move forward with sex or it would have taken 8 years, as it did, for his condition to be public knowledge if this was being mentioned with every new encounter. I tend to believe he didn’t.

  • Curious George

    It’s no biggie. You might be right about his pr. In my head I was chuckling as I made the comment with a side of disgust at the images that did come up. It was not intended as an attack on your character. I believe you.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    You must don’t work out like that and got to get use to it. I hate that feeling. It use to happen to me when I first started.

  • Coy little wink

    Usher and Tameka separated in June 2008. Usher was diagnosed in 2009. He married Grace in 2015. Based on that timeline I don’t see why Tameka or Grace deserve any negative comments. I don’t know that he cheated on Tameka with Grace…never heard that…

  • Curious George

    Simply because you could not see yourself doing it does not mean that it isn’t okay for others. There are many scenarios that could have taken place. Yet, you’ve already tried, judged, hanged the man, and sentenced him when you just admitted you really don’t know what took place. I just wanted to see if you knew information other than what was reported to base your judgements on. I can see from your response that you don’t. Thanks for your reply.

  • Lisa daniels

    You don’t know why? Are you on drugs? His nasty purpose infected people with herpes, he knew he had it and failed to disclose it to his sexual partners. That’s assault, which is a crime. Good luck with your stupidity.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Hi Owley, no I didn’t post the gate video. She is not at fault, but you know how juries are. They will still find her culpable because a man died.

  • Lisa daniels

    They say that Usher was a celebrity escort and let burn on some Uber rich Euro queen and now, he getting pay back. Allegedly.

  • Lisa daniels

    Rita probably on her ? list

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    My friends no good husband infected her at the age of 50! They had been married for just over two years when he infected her, then tried to say he didn’t have it. When she went to the doctor he denied having herpes and claimed she must be the carrier . But he had been tested earlier and diagnosed with it months before her positive results. He then admitted to cheating on her more than once . This man was just below her all the way around when they met and married. He isn’t handsome, smart, a good provider , nothing ! She married him because she was lonely and her first estranged husband (who was abusive to her and her son) died. She wanted companiobship but he turned out to be a drunk and a cheater with his ugly self. He didn’t drink or was hiding if when they met . She is STILL with him because she fears she will get to one else and doesn’t want to be alone. I am glad you shared your testimony because I can show her there is hope ! Bless you !

  • Renee26

    Thanks for clearing that up ?

  • Lisa daniels

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Stop spreading misinformation. There is no cure for herpes. The virus is probably dormant in her body until the next outbreak.

  • leapyearpisces

    Oh shat!!!!!!!! This is some sloppy shat.

  • TheWildChild

    It’s interesting to know that having herpes is not a death sentence. Considering so many ways of contracting it at many different ages. There are many other viruses with very similar strains as herpes out there. There’s lots of research and alternative sources for people living with this very common virus. But other lifestyle habits like kissing pets, nail biting, sitting on public toilets and eating/drinking after people puts you at risk for this and other viruses. ??? so does anyone know how Usher may have gotten it? Could’ve been as a child or from Tamika when she left her spouse for him ?

  • Lisa daniels

    Yes, but I bet he got his herpes from one of Jeters bishes.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Why is he mean?
    Those women don’t care about their bodies.

  • dontgetblocked

    Herpes is a STD. You can’t catch it from sitting on a toilet seat. You know how this boy got it. He gets it in all over the world. Heck, he did Superhead multiple times. He got herpes from being a ho.

  • leapyearpisces

    Probably, and I think it’s so ironic, this Ersher herpes stuff come out, and Justin Bieber running back to the church. It’s probably just me though.

  • dontgetblocked

    Akward.

  • Lisa daniels

    I think Beiber will be on some Jim Jones ?. That one is a smug slick little bastard.

  • dontgetblocked

    He paid a million dollars to a victim for not telling her.

  • leapyearpisces

    Ain’t he though? Some people are natural azzholes. It’s in their genetic makeup.

  • MsPam

    Okay Ms. Sandra, have yourself a great weekend!

  • BrittBrat2005

    That mean 90% of the world have std then lol its up to 8 different herpes.. If you then had chicken pox when you was young?! you then had herpes(vzv) over 90% of world then had this. its in your system as a dormant until it decide it wanna become active again which it will come back as shingles( most the time it happen when you become older around 50s) are it can be another case of chicken pox.. So is chicken pox herpes? Yes, in the sense that it is caused by a herpes virus. Herpes zoster (shingles) occurs when the virus becomes active again

  • Lisa daniels

    Yeah, but he is a rich white male and on that bugger suga (allegedly), so his asshole tendencies are exponential.

  • TheWildChild

    Yeah, I forgot about SupaHohead ? And him.

  • PROPHETMAJOR

    I believe you as one of family members did as well and have blood test to prove it! It can be cured!

  • leapyearpisces

    LOL…exponential. LOLOLOL. Lover it!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    If your friend was cured of herpes she would make headlines.

  • Kayke

    This has nothing to do with me….your average person would say “no” if prior to sex they were informed about the other person’s crotch rot. I don’t know what you’re attempting to defend or why but logic should advise you otherwise.

  • nick c

    Dormant sometimes with age and constantly taking meds it seems like that’s the case with every diseases you get.

  • Miami8981

    Thank you. I appreciate you trusting what I said was true. I really do. It’s all good. Just wanted you to know that it really did pop up yesterday on Google and I Googled it again today and it’s gone so someone on his PR team most likely got in Google’s ear.

    You are still a dumbass, if you have a std and know that you have it then, you fail to disclose it to your sexual partners prior to sex, it’s a criminal act. It’s called assault . Get some treatment for STDs that are causing you mental disorders.

  • Cj

    HERPES AND ALL INCURABLE STDS THAT HAVE NO CURE ARE CURSES. ANYTHING THAT HAVE NO CURE IS A CURSE. GOD PUT CURSES ON MANKIND FOR FORNICATION AND LUST, THIS IS A FORNICATION AND LUST CURSE…. ANYTHING THAT DRS CANNOT CURE OR FIND A CURE FOR IS A CURSE, ONLY GOD CAN REMOVE CURSES BY REPENTANCE. THE STD’S WITH CURES ARE WARNINGS FROM GOD AND THE INCURABLE ONES ARE CURSES….

    Hi @sandrarose

    Not sure why someone would claim this Nonsense.

  • EMILY POST

    No retardo o we all know he was wrong for spreading a STD but there are celebrities idiot spreading AIDs, Hepatitis and sleeping diseasing up minors stuff worse than herpes 1 &2 like herpes 8 and its just silence. She willingly had sex with a man who she knew wasnt monogamous to her and had another legal partner. Crazy to me blacks make a bigger stigma out of herpes 1 &2 than they do” Aids” or Hepatitis or black Gnorrera or HPV that causes cervical cancer all which effect black people at an extremely high rate. Also the main women that are being promoted to children are all promiscuous as hell bragging about selling their bodies or people who use to sell their bodies like Karrine Steffans, Amber Rose, Blac Chyna and endless instagram thoughts are proudly passed around and hyped. So yes retardo it was more of sarcasm that was over your head idiot.

  • Justlooknout

    WHAT? This is Not true. Shingles is adult virus that’s is Not sexually transmitted. Chickenpox It is a virus and is NOT sexually transmitted.

    Once again I agree with you, but in those cases prople were warned. Have the convo about your sexual history. Not have someone wake up with those symotims. My girlfriend woke up and the tried to deny it. That’s not cool.

  • hottlanta

    We supposed to believe you. Nothing in your intro say training not even from Everest Institute 1 year program. The trained professionals are not our enemy. Those so called homeopathic medicine is very expensive, it is not cheap. The FDA had to take certain homeopathic medications off the shelves last year because it was making people sick instead of better. The natural/homeopathic industry is the biggest medical ripoff in the world which is controlled by the WM. My friend had a serious disease went to the doctor for her diagnosis. wouldn’t take the WM medicine, took natural remedies and she died which is as natural as one can get. Then when her prognosis got so bad and she realize they were ripping her off and wanted to take her prescribed medication it was too late. I tell people this story all the time so they can know that homeopathic medicine/industry is not a miracle cure and the medical doctors are not the enemy. There is a lot of medical advances to help us live longer and I take advantage of the WM medical knowledge/technology every chance I get. We have to do our homework and stop following trends in medicine like our clothes. There is not a one size fit all for everybody. Some plants in the woods look harmless but they are poisonous and can kill you. We got people right now that are allergic to mushrooms and peanuts. That is just as natural as you can get when it comes to foods.

  • hottlanta

    Flying to the Caribbean surrounded by ocean, welcome alcoholic drinks, and people with sexy accents will have a person believe anything. If there was cure I will put it out there and be rich. Of course she is gonna tell you she is cured. She paid all of that money to go and she didn’t want to look like a fool. It is all about illusion, your friend got played like a fiddle.

    He actually didnt donate blood. He had his blood drawn because it was his event but his blood will not be treating anyone.

  • hottlanta

    If I had herpes I would not tell my friends, it is not their business. It is funny how people have no REAL medical training always trying to keep people form going to a REAL doctor to take care of themselves. The doctor is fake but the natural medicine is real.

Her ass knew he was married so he wasn’t monogamous to her in any type of way she took that chance right along with him. You really think a cheater is going to be honest?

    Glad you included a disclaimer about your lack of medical expertise. To just touch on one point, 30% might technically be statistically significant, but it is not significant in real world, safe sex terms. It means you still have a 7/10 chance of contracting the virus that causes herpes. The best route is to talk openly with your sex partners, expect honestly from them, and avoid risk-taking sexual behavior as much as possible…and of course, use condoms. But the point is they still don’t do much when it comes to herpes (or HPV, for that matter).
