  1. Hello All, Almost 2 years ago I had protected sex with couple of prostitutes. It was always protected even including oral. After a 4 or 5 days, I experienced itching on my base of shaft and eventually some very tiny blister appeared below the mushroom. After a week after the exposure, couple of red dots appeared on the penis tip and after 4 days disappeared. I had flu like symptoms after a month. After 3 weeks of my exposure, I did some general HSV blood test which turned out to be positive. But everyone in this forum said it is useless test as it was not ELISA and type specific. Af
  2. I don't know if anyone else has gone through this, but if your partner has genital herpes and then you were later diagnosed with it (even after using protection), how did you tell them? My partner told me he had genital herpes before we had sex. We've been careful but I have a suspicious itchy blister today, plus am feeling very run down. Making apt. with my doctor in the morning; meanwhile, my partner is out of town. I'm not sure how to tell him if the diagnosis is positive...do not want him to blame himself or be upset because we're committed and he was honest from the start. (And truthfully
  3. Hey there! I'm hoping you guys can help me sort this out, as I'm really frustrated at the moment. Apologies in advance for the novel! So the situation is this... Trying to be a responsible adult, I had my doctor order a full STD panel a few years ago. In Dec 2015 I tested positive on an IgG test for HSV-2. My value was >8.0. Had them retest me again a year later (again an IgG) and my value came back as "positive" again (with no number value - the test just either said positive or negative.) When I had these tests done I wasn't showing any symptoms and I didn't have any scrapings
  4. Hi there, new to the forum. About two weeks ago, I had a sexual encounter (no sex, though she rubbed my unprotected penis head against her wet panties) with a girl who told me after the fact that she was positive for Herpes. About a week ago, I noticed this red bump. I tried to pop it, thinking it an ingrown hair, and nothing came of it. It's still here a week later. The two pics are from yesterday and today. Yesterday it was still just a red bump, but today it seems to be starting to scab over. The area, but not it itself, has been itchy this past week. I also work outside and sweat a

    I guess I’m crazy then...

    I guess my neurologist must think I’m crazy now based on this... central pain syndrome is supposed to be caused by something like physical brain or spinal trauma or Lupus or Parkinsons...and I don’t have any of those...
  6. Hi everyone ! I am currently going through a very hellish part of my life right now! I have never felt like this in my life and am in need of some help! I found out my partner was talking to others for the second time in 5 years and during this heartache period, alcohol fuelled I spelt with someone else the second person in my life. I used a condom but a silly moment when It came off unprotected sex happened for about 15 seconds. Enough time I know. Since I have been tested over a two month period and have come back negative on blood and wee samples. However... as you ca
  7. I've seen multiple doctors over what was originally diagnosed as a staph infection. I've been treating this recurrent issue as a staph infection for over a year now, each doctor tested me for herpes due to obvious sores, but I was not diagnosed with herpes until just last week after knicking myself shaving and thinking I yet again had staph...a viral culture swag comes back positive for herpes. What I'm posting is 2 photos of the first time this ever happened last year, next to the most recent outbreak and asking if it looks consistent with herpes, and how on earth did other doctors miss that
  8. PLEASE READ!! NEED ADVICE!!! I think I have herpes but the doctor says I have nothing to worry about!! I dated a guy for 2 years, we broke up and he had sex with a girl, who had sex with a guy, who has sex with a girl that 100% has herpes. Although I'm not sure, I believe the virus had been transmitted to all of the people involved. After my ex had sex with the girl who potentially has herpes, I slept with him (this may have been close to a month after they had sex). When I had sex with him after he slept with her, it was unprotected and I had noticed a small sore on his penis that was bleedin
  9. Ok. I met this woman over the summer in late August. Things heated up and we ended up having sex fairly frequently. There were a few times where we threw caution to the wind and had unprotected sex (stupid as hell, I know I know). Towards the end of August when our fling fizzled out, I had noticed a bump on the shaft of my penis. I chalked it up to being irritated from shaving the area. I deal with folliculitis fairly regularly and it never really caused me much concern. The bump looked liked a very infected hair follicle and I had used some tweezers to help the hair out of the bump. I ac

    Worried About Herpes

    Hi All, I'm nervous I may have Herpes but I really don't know (since I don't have any tell-tale signs), and I can't find anything matching my symptoms online. To start from the beginning, I had a one-night-stand, (stupidly outside of my relationship on July 18th) that included unprotected oral sex with a woman. (No penetrative vaginal/anal sex) I am a white, 28-year old male for full disclosure. About 18 days later, I had a urinary incident. I was preparing to go to the beach on vacation and had my bathing suit very tightly placed underneath my scrotum. While urinating, I felt my penis th
  11. I got tested in May, but failed to see the red flag of my results: HSV 1 IGG TYPE SPECIFIC AB 20.80 (Abn: H). I gave him oral, it lasted less than 2 minutes. Later we discussed showing our STD results (I know, we did this ass backwards). I sent him mine and he has been freaking out. I am 37 and I have never had a cold sore or fever blister. I had no idea that I was HSV 1+. Since seeing my results, he has been out of his mind. Per his request, I spoke to my doctor and they assured me I could have gotten it as a child, but he won't/can't get past the 20.80 and that I failed to notice it.

    Help me... I'm scared...

    Hi there... I'm Nikki. I'm 19 and I live in New Jersey, USA. I've been with my boyfriend (main partner, J) for about six months now. We're in an open relationship. I was dating someone for a few weeks before breaking it off. The last time I had sex with that guy was about a month ago. Around a week ago I started experiencing intense itching, which I chalked up to a yeast infection (which I've had before) and didn't worry too much. But I was scratching a lot. And my nails are sharp. Also, J and I had really rough sex around that time. Not long after I started experiencing pain/discomfort,
  13. I first developed sores on the foreskin 8 months ago. I first remember seeing them on a Friday (12/3/2016) and figured it was a couple of scratch marks. The sores were painless, were not raised or showed blistering (Had 3 sores, 2 were right next to each other and combined into 1 the following week). I only started to feel discomfort during the following week. Not painful unless I put a fair amount of pressure (No change in appearance in the sores from the weekend).I tested on the following Monday and waited for the results. The test was a blood/urine sample and I regret not going to a physici
  14. I've been getting screened for HSV 1&2 for more than 10 years. 7 years ago I had my first outbreak and was diagnosed via a swab with genital HSV1. A couple of years later I got my first oral outbreak and continued to have negative blood tests for HSV2. One of my partners' partners was recently diagnosed with oral HSV2 but it sounded like she got it after the last time he saw or had contact with her, but my partner and I ceased contact anyway so that he could get tested again after 3 months. I have had an outbreak since then but it looked, felt, and was located in the same place as, all

    Hi, I'm new and I'm scared

    Hi, I went to my schools medical center on Thursday a bit concerned about an irritation and was told that I have HPV (in a treatable form) as well as HSV 1. I had to wait to hear back until today to finally get my diagnosis on the HSV. I feel as though I have gone through the stages of grief and I am somewhere near acceptance but I'm still so sad and so scared. I have a boyfriend who I love and can imagine spending my life with and I am worried about how that will change, even though I have already told him and he is committed to standing by me whether he has it already or not. If anyone
  17. So listen to my story all about how my life got flipped turned upside down... I broke up with my boyfriend of over a year but he was still living with me until he found another place and there were still feelings between us. Then I met someone I thought was the answer to my problems, had all his shit together, from a great family, totally liked me and I dive right into the relationship. Our sexual chemistry wasn't as good as me and my ex, but he had so much else going for him. I made the mistake of sleeping with my ex boyfriend one night when I came home drunk from a night out. The next d
