If I take testosterone injections will it make my herpes breakout?
Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.

no, testosterone injections will not make your herpes virus break out.

but if you get testosterone injections make sure you follow up with your doctor and monitor your testosterone levels and estrogen levels, since excessive testosterone gets converted into estrogen in men.

eat healthy and get plenty of rest to help your immune system. when your immune system is weakened, that is when your herpes virus can breakout.

let me know if you have other questions

I thought the hormonal change would cause a outbreak.

no, hormonal changes do not cause outbreaks

decrease in your immune system, not enough sleep, poor diet, feeling exhausted can cause an outbreak

but just hormonal changes will not cause an outbreak.
