    Unsure HSV status but...

    Hello i sort of feeling the same way. my HSV status was negative last time I had test done(a year ago) but after then I have had 3 protected sex partners which one of them while having sex my condom broke and what freak me out is she was during her period (so I started to clean my stuff around after sex and asking her is things are all good, of course she said yes. we are coworkers so I see her pretty much every day or so, but she didn’t wanna a relationship, after this episode I got tested for regular STD tests (which didn’t include HSV ) and didn’t think about it much.all was fine my last relation lasted 6 month And we were always protected, I was an ass for not pursuing it because I was scared of commitment... now nearly a year after the initial incident with the girl and I’m having all those thoughts that are driving me insane if I have herpes without me knowing, I haven’t had any alarming symptoms related to herpes but I keep reading that symptoms may never show. Is that true? How likely to get an outbreak after initial infection if she ever was carrying the virus (I never asked her her std status ) thinking about this made me gone to get another HSV test. between the 3 could she be more likely to give it to me between all my 3 partners ?
  2. Had unprotected sex aug 14, got std tested results came back positive for chlamydia I then got medication which gave me positive results for bacterial vaginosis. Told tdoctor my symptoms and after taking a swab of my cervix during a wellness exam she told me nothing looking out of the ordinary. Fast forward to now, I'm still getting itches and stings from time to time in my vagina and for about a month now I have been having back main mostly lower back pain arm aches leg aches feet aches hip aches and pelvic aches. (Could this be prodrome?) During this time I have had a big bump that looked somewhat like a cyst that just went down on its own and peeled a bit but never popped. For a while my Anus was always itchy but that subsided once I forced myself to stop scratching. I have had bumps or pimples on thighs and the bottom of my butt cheek that also never popped and just went away on its own (assumed pimples or razor bumps) Haven't had any swelling in the lymph nodes though. Sometime last week my clit had a tiny pain I say tiny bc I barely even noticed it, but there was small pain while I peed and a day later I look in the mirror and notice redness around it. Didn't hurt or itch when I touched it. I'm On my period now and so far as of today I haven't had any lower back pain. Now idk if all of these symptoms have come from my worrying, as I have been having anxiety about herpes since the unprotected sex in august, but it's driving me crazy I look in a 5x mirror everyday noticing every little bump freaking out wondering if it could be herpes and then when it goes away I feel a bit better just to find something else the next day. but when describing these bumps to the doctor she says they're more than likely razor bumps or pimples and to go back once and if they ever ooze and I haven't been back bc like I said they never popped nothing ever oozed out of the bumps I seen. Today while checking in the mirror I noticed some red or flesh colored bumps I'd wet much appreciate if someone looked at them for me ! Please give me some type of feedback I am praying on this ! The first thre pictures are from today the 4th pic was about two days ago. https://m.imgur.com/SAV1s00 https://m.imgur.com/GbIj2WU https://m.imgur.com/qWvuvNE https://m.imgur.com/sBX0nlw area at the op of my vagina two days ago (1st pic) and now (2nd pic) https://m.imgur.com/gBWR9N5 https://m.imgur.com/7fxl90Z @WilsoInAus please offer feedback!! Thank you so much
  3. Hi guys I am worried if I got herpes. I have gone to the doctor and they have all said I am fine, I recently had Oral sex from a girl I met. I had it done two times. The first time I was fine and the next time, I felt pain in my urine. Uti tests and stds tests expect for Herpes was done and I was good. The pain went away but I have these red sores and I am confused if they are anything? The doctor said they are normal but I just want some feedback. Thank you guys please comment. My pictures are there https://ibb.co/mV8jbp https://ibb.co/jqnubp https://ibb.co/fGze99 https://ibb.co/dP6gNU https://ibb.co/m9Sz99 https://ibb.co/jcfK99 https://ibb.co/nbg4bp https://ibb.co/kxv82U https://ibb.co/enKCU9
  4. Hi everyone. So I’ve had these bumps and sores and also some yellowish discharge and idk what it is! I looked everything up online and it says its Genital herpes.

    Is this Herpes??

    The doctor couldn’t tell me for sure and I’m still waiting for the results. I had unprotected sex with a new partner about five days ago. Three days after I woke up with these red spots everywhere. If anything they’ve gotten smaller. There’s no pain/discharge and only minor itching and irritation of my foreskin. What do you think? https://imgur.com/a/sccIpuE
  6. https://imgur.com/a/Wj2dETS Hi all, about 2 days ago I started to feel intense pain on my labia majora, looked down and saw 2 rather large open sores( 1 on either side). The pus (normal looking yellow) from the sores have stopped this morning. A day later, there was a blister that formed in my pubic area. In addition to this, there is skin shedding whenever I wipe after a pee ( it doesn't hurt when I urinate, I don't have a fever). My only sexual activity has been with a virgin and it was oral (started April 27th and ended June 8th). I've never seen a cold sore on this guy's mouth so I am unsure of what it could be. I'm on holiday for the next 2 days in a humid tropical country (indonesia, where the hygeine levels are appalling) so I don't know if the climate (dust, shower water) could have irritated the skin, as I've been here for 2.5 weeks already. I have been sweating excessively and I forget to immediately take off my sweaty clothes after a day out. Could that be the cause? Somebody please help this is urgent.
  7. Do i have herpes? I've only had this for days. I have a long term bf and we only have sex with eachother. Unfortunately, we don't use protection...
  8. Hello, I don´t know what to do, I had un protected sex in a party and I think I have herpes. My herpes I and II IMG is positive. Here I send I foto o my rash (sorry if its disgusting or something for some of you, but I really don´t know what to do). Do you think is genital herpes? https://ibb.co/geX21J
  9. Hi guys, I can't sleep or eat at the moment because I have something that reminds of HSV-2 and wonder if anyone can help me. Background: for 12 days ago i had unprotected oral sex, but protected peneration sex. This was a one night stand and I didnt see any open sores or anything in the girls mouth. On my penis shaft, I had a lot more with "tumbs" that looked like acne all over the left side (seems like it has gone down) On my foreskin i have this red rash, with two tiny paper cuts on it (it seems) On the 12th day, I woke up to peeing with burning sensation and also masturbated that also had burn. Regarding the masturbation, i also did that the day before (i always do it in the shower). When I peed in the afternoon, the burning sensation was gone and i tired to deliberetely to have some urine on it (didnt feel anything) - felt a little burning at the night, but not that it as plaguing me. I also jumped into the shower to have hot water stream on the specific areas without any pain. I tried to squeeze all the acnes and the rash without pain (even though the rash feels sore) Now ive been reading up and down on the "internet". Self inspection "rocks" :(. And I'm just super nervous. My real question is that, is this 100% or 90% sure that it is herpes outbreak? Please help me to calm my mind Thank you
  10. I'm going to start this thread with several posts that contain a summary of my HSV experiences and observations. I've broken this down due to the length and the number of related topics I feel need to be covered. However, I feel the whole is greater than the sum of the parts, so hopefully people with invest the time to read each section. I've tried to make this less of a rant and more of an informative depiction of my experience. My purpose in posting this is to hopefully help guide others who are confused about what is happening to their bodies and to cope with the implications (in my case it took years to become certain that HSV was the culprit.) My collection of posts is also intended to provide a much needed outlet for those who feel this disease has turned their lives inside-out, and who may also feel a sense of chronic disbelief at the jaw-dropping chasm that exists between the establishment view of this disease and their daily experiences with it, plus the feeling of chronic disenfranchisement that results. Ultimately, I feel that a grass-roots patient-based movement is needed to help slow down this disease within our bodies and across the face of the earth. I firmly believe if resources were prioritized we could achieve numerous vastly superior treatment options (if not full cures) in months or years instead of decades or never. However, part of the problem is that we've already passively waited decades for new treatment alternatives. Meanwhile, many of us feel like we're being held hostage by a silent terrorist that lives within our own bodies while we're forced to muster the energy to present a happy, healthy demeanor and thus go on living productive lives whilst attempting to suppress what feels like torture. I believe that this disease is vastly under-estimated by the establishment in its ability to destroy hope for the future and prosperity and a sense of well-being in the present. For me personally, it has significantly damaged my career and cost tens of thousands of dollars, and those are just the minor damages (I'd prefer not to state the personal damages, nor can they be put into monetary terms). Meanwhile, I can't even apply for disability. The reason for all of this is that we can't solve a problem unless we can agree on the definition of that problem and the cost of allowing it to remain unsolved. It's at this fundamental level that the FDA, CDC, and the medical establishment at large have staggeringly failed and seem more than willing to continue to do so. Ask yourself: do you think the FDA cares more about Theravax working around their authority, or do they care more about helping the people that were willing to do just about anything to have some chance of regaining a little peace from their HSV affliction? Ask yourself: why has a live-attenuated Varicella Zoster vaccine been available (thanks, Japan!) for decades and yet we refuse to even research live-attenuated HSV vaccines in the US? Ask yourself: what is more dangerous, providing a proven 99+% safe, thoroughly-tested vaccine based on a live-attenuated HSV virus (I believe there is absolutely no reason this couldn't have been achieved years ago) or allowing millions of lives to be ruined, babies to be killed, etc., by a highly aggressive and malicious family of wild viruses?
  11. I don’t even know where to begin. But I had unprotected sex with somebody which all his test came back negative today. (Still waiting on my results) so i went to the urgent care this Wednesday and they told me I had vaginitis which I really don’t know Much about it I just know it has something to do with bacteria and yeast that grows cause I have some inflammation at the bottom entrance of my vagina and I have a lump on my perineum and around my anus there are spots look like white heads kinda I don’t know I also had anal sex which after me and partner was done with that I was bleeding cause it was rough so I know he had to tear it but I have a lump on my anus and I think it can be a Hemorrhoid they only time my pee burn is when it hits my perineum and alittle around my anus I’m just so scared I been crying and praying just tryna be positive cause the doctors said it could be a few things I just don’t wanna assume it’s herpes cause maybe it can be cause of my infection maybe ? Btw my discharge is like a white cloudy look and my vagina does have a odor due to my infection. They think it’s herpes but I don’t wanna think that cause it can be something else but they have me taking a pills called valacyclovir & cream called acyclovir I’m 19.

    IGG Levels over time

    Hey guys, im still waiting on a second western blot (first one was indeterminate) but was wondering if we could get a little thread going about IGG levels over time. For 6 months (never been tested for hsv prior) I’ve tested three times at just about the same level 2.1-2.5 or so. im just wondering if people’s IGGs have stayed relatively the same over time. Obviously results can fluctuate from time to time but I’m wondering more about relative stability in levels or people seeing big increases or (I suppose it’s possible?) decreases. Hoping to get some responses more just out of curiosity than anything else. (Sorry if this is a noob move)
  13. Hey guys I need some feedback and insight, A year ago I took a blood test for herpes and I got Herpes Simplex Virus 1/2 test, IGM is positive with a ratio of 1.60. I followed up with an HSV 1 & 2 IGG specific test and got negative results. I am concerned on my results and unsure of what to do or what to think. I haven't had any outbreaks or any signs of herpes. I thought about getting another blood test done to double check, but I need some opinions on what to do. Please help me!!!

    confused about atypical symptoms

    Hi all, I've been looking at this forum for a while and was hoping to get some advice. I've had ongoing issues for about a month and it's not really clear what's going on. I'm gonna start from the beginning: I was drunk and had anal sex unprotected for a very brief period of time, less than a minute, before my wits came about me and we stopped having sex altogether. About a week after, I noticed a pinching pain on the right dorsal (upward) side of my glans penis. I began to suspect a herpes prodrome, since I've had a herpes scare in the past (HSV-1 -- came back negative). I started panicking and the pinching lasted for about 2 days, and no lesions or noticeable redness appeared, so eventually I figured it was nothing. ~1 week after this, I wake up for a tailgate and notice a small red patch, completely flat, with no lesions in the foreskin. I figured it was some kind of irritation and went about my business for the day. Then, the following day (so about 2 weeks out now), I'm laying down and notice a sudden sharp pain on the shaft of my penis. I notice a red jagged rash and monitor it throughout the day, it has a burning sensation. However, by the next morning (less than 24 hours later), the redness is completely gone; in the following days dry skin begins to develop in tiny circles, similar to how eczema resolves (definitely not raised scabs). I go to my university doctor, and he tests me for the normal STD panel, but says he doesn't notice anything abnormal about my penis (the dryness was very faint at this point and he didn't look very closely or use any viewing instrument). Test comes back positive for chlamydia, I begin treatment, and the symptoms for chlamydia start and end over the course of that week. I begin to develop a burning sensation in my scrotum and extending down the perineum to my anus (no contact occurred there) and notice a smell similar to a yeast infection/intertrigo (which I'm prone to). I also notice three raw "cuts) in the folds of my foreskin (I'm circumcised but have some excess skin), in addition to flat pin prick red dots along the rim of the glans with no fluid center, almost like fine point sharpie. I treated cuts with zinc oxide ointment and they dried up really fast, and the burning went away after a shower. I go home for the weekend preparing for spring break, and decide to start treating with gold bond spray and lotrimin, convinced that this is a fungal or yeast infection. That night I notice a small pinprick size raised white spot, doesn't really seem to contain fluid, but I panicked and made a second doctors appointment with my primary care. By the time I wake up like 7 hours later, the whitehead is gone aside from some very slight redness in a tiny pinprick spot, the doctor says it's nothing, but prescribes me Valtrex in case of emergency on vacation and orders HSV IgG test (now just under 4 weeks out). I didn't take valtrex and symptoms subsided but don't disappear altogether. I get a call from the doctor, HSV-1 and HSV-2 both negative, I'm aware that tests aren't fully accurate until ~12 weeks, but I take it as a good sign. However, towards the end of the following week, I begin to notice redness on ventral side of penis by the urethra. I treat it with fungal creams etc and it kind of comes and goes over the course of the week. At the end of the week I had a long travel day, and notice that it is significantly worse, there is raised skin and irritation but no fluid-filled lesions or scabs. I start taking the 3-day course of Valtrex, while still treating with fungal cream, which leads me to today. Fungal cream appears to be irritating the inflammation, so I just stopped, but I notice redness in my foreskin again near where it was before. Still no noticeable lesions, hardly any pain. When I urinate it passes over the inflammation on the glans and even then it doesn't really hurt at all. There is very slight burning in the red region. I'm sorry to give so much context but it's been a long and stressful journey. Has anyone had similar symptoms? The time frame is strange, the symptoms are strange, and I'm confused as to how to interpret the test results at 4 weeks. However, since I acquired chlamydia, it doesn't seem far off that I would acquire another STD, especially given this all began after that event. Thanks in advance for the help. EDIT: I also developed eczema during my trip (likely due to sun exposure or possibly stress) but this could be a potential confounder. Also, friction and masturbation both definitely appear to contribute to the inflammation.

    Can you guys help

    Hey guy I need help idk if this is herpes or not I’m not sure if I have it please let me know what you think.
  16. Hi, I am struggling with burning in my thighs, and irritation at the end of my penis just below the head (where forskin would be - I am circumcised). There have never been blisters. There irritation is like long (2-3cm) thin areas that looks like the skin was stretched. It doesn't bleed. It just looks shiny and pink. This has been going on for 2-3 months. I have seen several doctors (general, dermatologist x2, acute care center), but all clam that it's just irritation. I did get a blood test as HSV1 + but all else negative. All Drs seem flippant about an HSV1 diagnosis. Still think that the irritation is not herpes. Did take famvir for a week. Didn't seem to help either. Treated it as a year infection, dry skin, powders, lotions etc. Scared to transmit herpes to my wife, but need some help. Does any one experience similar symptoms? Can this be herpes? And stay for so long? Any advice on how to help my previous heal?
  17. Hi Everyone I would really appreciate some advice for my current situation. I had something quickly come and go over the weekend so wasn't able to get it checked by a doctor. I talked to my mum who gets coldsores regularly and told me it was nothing and that I should just stop worrying. I did that but now I'm not so sure. I'll summarize the info below: Friday night noticed something a bit sensitive in my nose, just inside one nostril, ignored it as I've had ingrown hairs before and assumed it was just that. No itching or burning present. Didn't look at it because I wasn't really concerned. Saturday afternoon felt something release, not a pop per say but what ever it was it broke the skin. I went to look at it straight away but didn't see a blister or anything, I squeezed the cut(? not sure how to describe) to get liquid out and a clear liquid drained from a small red sore just on the inside of nostril. At this point I took some photos, one of the liquid. There was probably about 5 drops about the size of the photo in all. Then it stopped and there was a tiny sore also pictured. Sunday morning basically all gone, the skin may have been a bit pink or dry but I kept pawpaw ointment on it. Monday thought about going to the doctor but there was nothing there so seemed silly. Didn't have any pain at all over the weekend. Here's the kicker though, my girlfriend had a coldsore show up on Friday, we had last kissed on Wednesday morning, which means she could have been in the predrome stage. I haven't had a cold sore before and I'm a bit of a hypochondriac with this stuff so I don't really trust my own opinion. What do you guys think? And what do I do now? Really appreciate any help. Thanks a lot!
  18. Hi, ive posted here before about this strange spaced out rash that I have on my groin. It’s now been about 16 days since I first noticed one red spot. Then a few days later I noticed this blistery/pimple thing that popped up nearby and for two weeks they just kept popping up individually. On my last post I had comments from people saying it most likely looked like something bacterial. I’ve been trying to do some research on outbreaks with no prodrome but I can’t find anything! I had no tingling, burning, itching sensations in that area before I noticed the first spot. I literally just noticed it and was like what the hell is that? also, can Herpes be that spaced out? From what I’ve learnt is that the lesions appear all bunched up together. I’ve also heard that initial outbreaks hurt A LOT. however these spots haven’t been very sore at all. But my main question is can you have no prodrome symptoms?
  19. Hi, about two and a half weeks ago I had sex (protected) with a woman I slept with about a month and a half ago. This was on Saturday (14 oct). Fast forward to Thursday 17 oct I was on the toilet and noticed kind of a red circular mark with a crust around it (not on it) on my inner thigh in the groin area. I thought nothing of it as I sweat a lot and usually get itchy rashes around my Groin. Fast forward a few more days I noticed a large pimple that looked more like a blister a couple of cm from the original suspected sore. Up until now I have had these pimple/blistery things popping up for the last two weeks in this Groin area whilst others have been healing. Some are a little itchy but some are not. I’ve had no flu like symptoms and I didn’t have any tingling or itching of the area before I noticed the first spot or anything like that. I noticed redness/ spots on the tip of my penis the other day also and thought what I’m having is 100% Herpes however the penis spots have subsided after about two days so I’m wondering if I’m having some sort of fungal/balanitis outbreak or jock itch or if it is actually Herpes. I’m terrified. Can Herpes blisters pop up gradually over the weeks? I thought Herpes lesions kind of come at you at once and heal all together. I consulted the girl whom I slept with and she said she hasn’t had any symptoms but went to get checked right away so I’m waiting for her to get back to me with her results before I really start worrying. But yes I’m terrified, I’m only 21 and not too keen on having Genital Herpes. I’ve attached a bit of an unflattering photo to give you an idea of what I’m dealing with. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
  20. My boyfriend had a sore on his lip (I believe he got it on Wednesday), but we weren't sure that it was herpes. Looking back, it does not match up with the looks of a canker sore. It was on his upper-lip, with a more scab-type appearance. He refrained from giving me oral sex just in case. Sunday at about 4 PM however, I gave him oral sex. It was not very long as it was immediately followed by vaginal sex, with a condom, which I now know only reduces likelihood of contraction by 30%. I also thought it would be safe because I had no signs of a sore. I noticed at about 6:30 PM (two and a half hours later) that I was developing a sore on the side of my lip. Upon research, I found that I could have still had the infection at the time of oral sex, as it can be present before an actual sore appears. It is now Wednesday, three days later. Last night I felt a pins and needles feeling in my vagina for about 20-25 minutes. This morning and afternoon, I thought I was experiencing itchiness but it may be my paranoia. My boyfriend is also not sure if he is itchy or if he is just working himself up. Both of us have not shaved in over a week because we are not trying to irritate the area more than it already may be, so that may be contributing to the supposed itchiness as well. I also noticed that I seemed to have more discharge than usual only an hour ago. I am not experiencing any pain. In your experience, from either a clinical or personal standpoint, what is the likelihood that I have contracted genital HSV-1?

    Hi! I was on this forum about a few months ago when I thought I had herpes. After about half a year of going through hell, I still don't know what is going on with me. I will try to make it short as possible. I came on this forum after having intercourse with a girl then a day later I got an infection down there. (I am a male, 19 years old, at the time I was 18 when it happened and she was 16.) Long story short, I went to a dermatologist and he instantly told me it's herpes. Gave me the medicine etc, the usual. I confronted that girl and she said she doesn't have herpes. I kinda trusted her since we had a small thing going on.. it wasn't a one time thing. We had intercourse 2 times, first time the condom broke then second time didn't use a condom at all. (I know, that was stupid but heck.. I'm not special, lots of people do it and some have consequences from it others don't.) What I've had around my penis it definitely looked like herpes! Small red dots all over the tip, small itching, pain in left thigh, flu-like symptoms etc. I was never tested for it since within days of taking the medicine it went away and I since it went away, the medicine probably did its job... and at that particular time I was like, meh, f*ck it, it happened, now lets focus on the future. The reason I never tested is because ever since, half a year or so, my penis is perfectly fine and I've never had any outbreaks whatsoever. The reason I am 100% sure it's not herpes, it's because a good friend of mine(in his late 30s), told me same thing happened to him. I described the symptoms to him and he couldn't believe it.. basically it looked like it rained with small red dots all over. He told me it's not herpes but a yeast infection. He said he had a girl who liked to have multiple partners and after the intercourse the next day he had the yeast infection. He knows that for certain because he's seen an urologist and that guy definitely looked like he knew his stuff. And indeed, it was an yeast infection (for him.) That's why after I showed him some similar pictures he said it's an yeast infection. Therefore, I can conclude it's not herpes that I have. Now the symptoms.. oh boy. I've had all the symptoms you can imagine. I mean, all of them. Some of them might be due to stress(will explain later) some might be due to something I definitely have. (which personally I think it's HIV.) After about a month and a half, I started experiencing all these symptoms, not all at once but followed one after another. I've never had a strong fever and cold but I did have small fever, cold, sneezing a lot etc. One of my main symptoms is my stomach noises. When I had that first symptom, I started thinking about HIV. This whole post is about what I think, HIV. At this point I think I have HIV. I am here to seek your help and opinions and tell me what you guys think. Am I crazy or am I not? My story has lots of details and I'd be writting a book if I had to list them all here. But basically my last test was back in May, 84th day and I tested negative. (tested negative on everything else). However, I believe the girl had HIV and I have my reasons. I am aware that would be a crime if she didn't tell me so I'm hoping maybe she doesn't have ..but all the reasons I see , make me believe I do have it. I am no longer in contact with the girl therefore I can't talk or ask her again. (Will post some of our conversations below to see for yourself what she had to say, although I never asked her about HIV since I didn't want to scare her.) I have been to a bunch of doctors and they all told me I don't have HIV and my stress is causing my health issues plus on top of that I used to do juicing and I wasn't doing it properly. One day I was eating good, juicing, then next day I'd eat something bad. One day I'd fast then next I'd eat a lot etc. I also lost like 50 pounds back when I was 17, I used to be around 200 pounds and went down to 148 then back up to 160( the reason I went so far is because I found it how easy it is to lose weight, I was doing intermittent fasting and it worked like a dream!) My body NEVER had any issues before! Even after losing so much weight, I actually felt damn better. So I don't want to blame it on my eating habits since my body could handle anything. Basically my friend and all the doctors say the stress and the sudden change on my body with my juicing and eating habits messed with my system therefore the symptoms bla bla bla. I don't believe it although I might be wrong. Ever since I've been with that girl I had nothing but problems and I am going crazy. I kept telling myself I have HIV each time I had a test done. I've had like 4 HIV tests within a period of 3 months. All negative but the symptoms would get worse or have A NEW symptom each time I thought about HIV or read about its symptoms. So I'd read about it online then within few days I'd have it happen to me. At this point I want to go get tested but I live in Washington State and I can't find anything for free. I still live with my parents and for me to pay 150$ at Planned Parenthood is too much, hell even 100$ is too much. I don't have a permanent job, I work from a computer and I do graphic design and sites and stuff like that. Freelancer I guess you can call me. I used to live in another state where they had HIV done for free(Louisiana). I also don't have insurance so at the moment it's hard for me to just go and get tested or ask for money from my parents. Although I will probably go eventually because I can't anymore. One day I feel good, then next day I don't feel good. I've had some small diarrhea in the past, green stools although this could be attributed to jucing. I have constant migraines. Back this spring I had flu-like symptoms, headaches etc. etc. Also since back in April, when I started getting my stomach noises, I have bad acid reflux. It comes and goes. I have never vomited. I have had white gums (somewhere in May and when I read about the white gums and HIV I instantly said ok, it's HIV, I'll get tested and it will be positive.) Well I was wrong it was still negative. I've also had yellow spots around my legs but my dermatologist said those are bruises... but giving the fact that I was so paranoid, I said ok, it's not HIV but Hep C. For a few days I thought I have Hep C. Then after the bruises went away, my thoughts went back to HIV. At this point I don't know what to think. I know I have to get tested one more time since the 6 month period for HIV and all that stuff. But, I hope I don't sound crazy. My symptoms are real as they get and at this point they are not like in the past but the only thing I still get is the bad acid reflux with mild migraines. I also have a feeling of..... can't explain it. Just feel ill. Like sometimes I have something in my muscle. or blood. or stomach. I feel like everything is coming from my stomach. It all starts with the acid reflux and the mild migraines and just a feeling I can't describe with words... which is why most doctors told me it's stress.. Sure, my stress is crazy, maybe I indeed messed my stomach up and my whole system but.. shouldn't I get better? Should all these symptoms go away with time? The ONLY thing that helps me is marijuana. I don't smoke it everyday but at least once a week I try to. Sometimes even 3-4 days in a row and all my symptoms go away. I won't stop smoking it because for me it does nothing but help me. I also get all kinds of weird hives or bumps around my body. Although this can be attributed to the fact that I eat bad at the moment, lots of chocolate and fast food and I used to have perfect skin in the past and sometimes get weird hives/pimples and wouldn't care at all, I would actually scratch them or pop then put some alcohol and whin days my skin would be clear again (thanks to my mom for perfect skin.) However, now that I think I have HIV, every thing that happens to my body I blame it on HIV.. I have a lot more to say but I already made this too long. I will add in details along the way. So.. please tell me what you think. Don't be nice to me and try to make me feel good, at this point I don't care if it's HIV or not. I just want to get better and find out what the hell is wrong with me. Below are some screenshots of my conversation with the girl I had intercourse with. Please all look at them and tell me what you think her words mean. I did a lot of research and one thing I can say is that she hides a lot of stuff and there are things she didn't tell me. But see for yourself and help me with some opinions. I can't talk with my parents yet because they have TOO MUCH stuff on their minds and our family has a lot of problems and I don't want my mom to break down. I'm not scared of HIV more than I am scared of seeing my mom cry. The reason I am attaching these images is also because right after me she went with some old dude and they were dating... like that was unexpected and that would never happen over night. People don't just have intercourse with someone then next day have a boyfriend they just met like two hours ago. I'm assuming she cheated on him because eventually she ended up blocking me and blocking my cell as well. Well not assuming but she did indeed cheat on him.

  23. Hey everyone, I’m still a bit new to the forums and a bit to having herpes as well (~1.5 months since diagnosis). Some of you may have seen a few of my posts already, but I guess as much as I’m trying to overcome the fact that I am positive for it (and I intend on getting retested in a couple of months), it’s pretty damn difficult because of several things. This was my first ever sexual experience as a guy and as someone whose family is very against sex before marriage I am feeling regret, guilt, what i consider depression, and if I’ll ever feel ‘normal’ again emotionally and psychologically about myself or about my passions and hobbies, despite my physical symptoms. I feel like I should’ve just abstained until I would get arrange married in a few years, but I guess I let pressure and lust get to me. I don’t know whether if it’s because of the time since my diagnosis and I never expected to ever have something ‘incurable’, but I’m just worried about that aspect of it most. Can someone else relate or anyone know if this is normal and gets better? I experience I guess mild penile neuralgia compared to a lot of people on here, but whenever I do it just hits me that this virus is probably what’s causing it.
  24. So around the forth of July I started getting itchy bumps that were very tiny and spread out. Before that I had in and off bacterial vaginosis. Anyways all of the bumps disappeared painlessly except one. I then scratched that bump and it bled. The next day I started itching inside my lips and I noticed there were more bumps. They're painful to pee on but they were never blisters and I never had flu symptoms. I've been with the same person for 3 months HOWEVER my groin lymph nodes are swollen. Please help. PS the bump on the far right is a razor bump
  25. !!PLEASE READ!! For the past 3 weeks I've had a coldsore/pimple/herpes sore on the skin between my nose and lips. I've been worried sick and I just want some of your guy's opinions. When I first got it, it was just an inflamed red spot. I thought nothing of it because I've had them before on my upper lip but they've gone away after I put some acne prevention cream on them. After the first week with the sore, it calmed down and the redness decreased. I was relieved because I thought it was going away. Then it came back. One night I was just chilling on the computer and I felt a pulsing near where the sore is. I checked it out in the mirror and it was very inflamed. I went to sleep and thought it would go away. In the morning it was significantly less red but still noticeable. That same day I noticed that pus was forming inside. It was like two pimple heads inside. The pus was bright white. I went to sleep and in the morning the heads must have popped. However the sore was still red. I had a friend who has herpes look at it and he thinks its just a pimple but I want your opinions. I'm concerned and have no clue with how to proceed with this. Should I wait? Apply anything to get rid of it? Or go to the doctor? Please help me out, this is urgent.
