Sex is Painful

Dear Dr. Rob:

I am a happily married 31 year old and my husband and I were recently diagnosed with herpes. Sex for me lately is VERY painful. Is this a side effect of herpes?????

Dr. Rob’s Response:

Dear Poster with Painful Sex:

Other than during an act of outbreak, sex should not be painful as a result of herpes.  This would suggest another problem, which can be correctly diagnosed by your gynecologist.
