Hello, my name is Jennie. I am 30 years old and I am a genital herpes patient. I have a question. How long does a genital herpes patient live?
To my knowledge (I'm not a medical doctor), there is no evidence that having genital herpes per se has any effect on lifespan. However, there is fairly compelling evidence that having HSV leaves a person more vulnerable to other sexually transmitted diseases - including HIV/AIDS.
