My Dr told me that Herpes will not kill me. That's is not a death sentence. However if you build up your immune system, you will have less outbreaks. That's what my Dr told me. Sara.

I never read herpes supresses your immune system. It has no affect on life span.

The only thing I read is that it can lower your resistance to other STD's and some of those infections can be life threatening...AIDS, HPV (cervical cancer)
