Herpes does not cause stomach pain exactly but does cause an array of other problems that lead to stress in the body which in turn can cause problems with the stomach and one of these things is bloating.
Herpes is a sexual disease that is contracted during sexual acts. About one in every six people has herpes and it could cause a lot of other problems for people including blisters, pain, itching, discharge, dysuria, and swollen inguinal lymph nodes.
All of these are problems associated with the disease but a bloated stomach isn't. However stress is known to cause a number of stress related stomach issues including irritable bowel syndrome which would certainly be a cause of the stomach bloating.
Stress can also lead to stomach ulcers in that area which could be attributed to the body being under attack from the virus. There is also the chance that the medicines that you take to get rid of the problem are causing issues with your stomach and hence are the cause of the bloating you feel.
Herpes is a STI that is very common; there are two different types of the disease which have different problems associated with them.
If you do think you have Herpes it is best to immediately contact your medical professional and ensure that you get the appropriate treatments. If you have sex with numerous people you greatly increase your chances of getting the disease and so should always have protected sex in case you contract it.
So to finish it is unlikely this is the cause of bloating though Herpes may have triggered something else. The best thing to do is to look into what you're eating and anything that has changed to determine what the issue is.

My stomach has swollen, but I don't take my zovirax everyday. I took it yesterday and it eased the pain in my right side. I thought it was ovarian cyst again, but pain medicine didn't help the pain my herpes medication did. Is it also possible herpes caused my stomach to swell?

The pain your feeling is in the muscle. When you eat or drink does the pain get worst?
