    Re: Does herpes effect your sex drive?

    It can affect you mentally and physically. When I was first diagnosed, I felt damaged and icky most of the time and sometimes just the act of sex would trigger another outbreak. So avoiding sex in those first few months seemed like the best option. It does pass and you need to do positive things for yourself and not dwell on the negative of this virus. Many have said that mental stuff you go through with herpes is usually much worse than the physical pain/symptoms.

    herpes is mostly a mental thing i find. it may not affect your sex drive, but it could affect the amount of sex you have. if the person that is with you wants to have sex alot, and you don't want to, whether you have herpes or not, it would affect your relationship badly.

    It affected my sex life because I felt dirty. I think in a lot of ways Herpes is more damaging psychologically than physically.
