Theres a great article on Herpes here:

It should tell you everything you need to know. I'm not sure if it mentions the "incubation period". Maybe one of the other advocates could clarify on that.

This website says it can take from 2 to 21 days for symptoms to appear, but you can also have it and show no symptoms of it. This is precisely why it is SO important to have STD screens regularly.
