Odd question: Will genital piercing affect herpes?

Recommended Posts

I love the question. :) Where do your herpes outbreaks occur? If it's close to your clit, then it getting your clit pierced might aggravate the area just enough to wake herpes back up from its dormancy to come back to the surface of the skin as a full-blown outbreak. It depends on how sensitive you are to having outbreaks due to chaffing and such. Plus, like Kuro said, I've heard there is quite a big possibility of over time losing a lot of clitoral sensitivity due to scar tissue around the clit. And you don't want that to happen. Make sure you do plenty of research and talk with other women who have had it done. But as far as the herpes specifically, the vague answer is "it all depends." Sorry I couldn't be of more help, but great question! ;)
