Introduction: Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted infection (STI). This STI causes herpetic sores, which are painful blisters (fluid-filled bumps) that can break open and ooze fluid. Objective: The present study was designed to investigate the correlation of genital herpes at a tertiary care teaching hospital. Methodology: The prospective study was conducted over a period of 8 months. This included 220 genital herpes patients of age between 31 and 40 years who fulfilled the inclusion criteria that were recruited in the study. Result: Of 220 cases, 153 were male and 67 were female. Mean of the age of male patients was found to be 35.23 and female was 33.34. The value of age variable, i.e., R2 = 0.367 was weak as it found to be <0.4. Hence, correlation was found to be weak. A positive coefficient indicates that the association is positive, that is, if weight increases, body mass index of the patient also increases. Conclusion: Our study showed that the maximum patients were male and they were from 31 to 40 age category, most of the patients were belong to a rural area and they were married and they were doing the private job, most common presenting complaint of patients was genital herpes.
