Is it normal to have irregular period cycles because of herpes?

Recommended Posts

Hey Jessi! This would be more of a question for your doctor to answer for you. Have you asked him/her? We wouldn't be able to offer you advice without having medical knowledge. And as far as I can tell, herpes doesn't actually affect anything like that. It's just a skin condition after all. Now, if you're taking medications for herpes, maybe that could affect your period? But I'm totally guessing with no medical knowledge to back me up on that guess. :)

Stress has an amazing affect on the body. If you are stressed out about getting H, that could be leading to irregular periods. But definitely talk to your doctor. The one time I was late on my period was during an extremely stressful time in my life, where I also experienced unintended weight loss, thinning hair, and even a hives breakout! When I called my Dr. about the period (and pregnancy was a possibility) they were like "Oh no big deal, that's normal." without the stress in consideration. It was only after it came late and the other effects came along that we realized it was stress related.

Hi Jessi..herpes won't change your cycle..stress does..whenever I am stressed my period comes late..and I have very bad PMS..I am assuming you are not thinking you might be pregnant since you didn't mention it..if you are still irregular even when you are not stressed out, you have to go to your doctor to have it checked out :)
