Note: These herpes (and usually HPV) groups are not run by HWerks. They are run by awesome volunteers! While some groups may focus on support, others may be purely for social and dating. Local groups are just another way to meet people in your area and are a great asset to the community! Each group is different so please visit their website for more details. See the Local Groups page to learn more or Join HWerks and start meeting people today!

The herpes virus is far more common than most people realize. Researchers estimate that some 30 million American adults have genital herpes infections, and as many as 100 million have oral herpes – that commonly cause “cold sores” on the lips or face. The epidemic rise of herpes simplex in the past decade has attracted the attention of the press from time to time. The stories have sometimes spread more fear than information and created more questions than answers.
For many, diagnosis with herpes can mean a time of confusion, anger, fear, and frustration. HELP IS AVAILABLE.
