Masturbation causing herpes outbreaks?

I'm a big proponent of keeping partners as safe as possible, so definitely get on herpes medication, which will cut down asymptomatic viral shedding and herpes outbreaks by around 50%. (Download the free handouts for more of the details around risks and how they can be mitigated by condoms/meds.)

And about having outbreaks when you masturbate, for some, stimulating the zone where the initial infection occurred can trigger outbreaks, but it's also tied to a lot more than that, such as your overall immune system and stress levels.
