Can Gential Herpes Cause Diarrhea

I was given gential herpes sometime in late November or early December and developed really bad diarrhea. Medicine seemed to stop it for a while, but it is back. Can herpes be the cause of it?



It has been a while since you posted, but did the diarrhea ever go away? I am not a doctor and can't diagnose you, but diarrhea is not one of the commonly listed symptoms of herpes. I hope you were able to see a doctor about it, since the diarrhea could be related to something else going on.

Please do let us know how you are doing. I'm sure your experience could be of great benefit to others on the site!

Best of luck,
