If you are suffering from mumps now, 30 years from now you might end up with Shingles, which is NOT genital herpes.

It is another form of the Herpes virus; I think there are 6 or 8 of them. Many are not sexually transmitted--such as Shingles.

It is a very painful condition -- I've had it twice. Don't spend your life worrying about it; there is treatment.

I would ask your doctor, nurse, or local walk-in clinic regarding the rest of your questions.
