Check other viruses: Other viruses can be transmitted during intimacy such as cytomegalovirus (cmv), epstein barr virus (ebv), and hepatitis b or. Hepatitis c viruses. These viral infections can all be tested by blood.

Agree with Dr. LP: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor and discuss if you may be depressed. Counter-intuitive as it may seem, exercise may help. Start with low intensity exercise such as walking and gradually increase the intensity as tolerated.
