Welcome to e health forum.

It is possible that being diagnosed with genital herpes has caused psychological stress and this might be cause of your erectile dysfunction.

Stress, anxiety, and depression can definitely affect your sexual performance.

But you need not fear. In the mean time avoid all forms of sexual activity including masturbation, and once all your lesions due to the infection subside, you should be back to normal.

I hope this helps.
