Right here is the deal,

My and my current girlfriend have been dating for about 6 months, we started sleeping together almost immediately and using condoms. after about 3 weeks she went and had the workup done HIv Syphillis, Herpes the works, all clean.

The only problem was that the condon caused some irritation around the hair follicles on the right side of my penis, i thought it was ingrown hairs or something, so i pulled one out, and it hurt, but didnt really help, and the redness went away after about 3 or four days.

No worries yet.

So we spent a month apart due to travelling and when we got back we made up for it, this time w/out condoms. after about a week of serious make-up time I got a small red dot above the shaft in the pubic region i puled out the hair like before but it got a bit worse this time so i decided to leave it alone, it gradually went away, and we kept haveing sex, it didnt really hurt at all it was just red and looked like folliculitous (infected hair follicles) then i developed a small patch of blisters un the shaft at the base of the scrotum that looked like friction burns, again they didnt hurt they just had a bit of pressure, (probably because they were blisters, duh) i had been on the excercise bike really hard and with all the friction it thought it might just be irritation, after they came up i woke up in teh morning and most of them had popped and scabbed over, and there was some mild itching mostly the kind i would associate with a healing scab.

So she started her period and since there was no sex, they all dissapeared. But now that shes off her period again and the sex has resumed same sort of thing, red bumps some bosters and itching all in the pubic region and all with harr follicles (i thing its kinda hard to crane my neck that far down to check.) Other than that no other symptoms and from the time of the first spot when we came back from vacation its been nearly a month and a half.

I have only had one other partner and that was two years ago, no symptoms from either of us, her parents both had herpes, but i understand transmition like that is rare, also she is a very veyr lucky cancer survivor so i would imaging that the doctors would have been aware of any sort of problem like herpes.

Sorry its long, ive tried to be thorough. I am, still, however freaking out and cant think of anything except for being shunned by everyone I know and all the other irrational stuff that goes along with it.

Appreciate your help

With the exception of the "blisters" Sounds like run of the mill irritation to me - but the next time you get a rash have a doc test it. If you are finding hairs in them then they are just that - ingrown hairs - alot of times once you get one, you can continue to get them in the same area when the hair grows back. Keep an eye out for those blisters again - get to the doc when you see them. You can have a blood test - but not as accurate as swabbing a sore.

As for the girlfriend - if her parents both have HSV - she will at least understand your situation - but it doesn't mean she has is from them for sure.

Stop freaking out - get to the doc - get your self tested properly - self diagnosis will make you crazy.

      I’m going to force him to get tested ! Thanks for your help !

      @EssenceL25 there really isn't a question mark around the source, it's your latest partner. The median time from infection to an outbreak of lesions upon initial infection is 4 days.  The only thing that isn't certain is the type I suggest.

      I asked if it was hsv 1 or 2 and the doctor said it was Hsv2. I’m not sure i just asked him when he was tested last he said this year I said I think we should go test together and he agreed . I’m going to bring it up again cause I really need to know if he gave this to me I wasn’t sure since it was so close to my previous relationship.

      @EssenceL25 then it is all beyond reasonable doubt that the current partner is the source. A 'perfect' fit in terms of timing, symptoms and swab. It may be though that the type is not technically known. Culture swabs are very often not typed and just assumed to be HSV-2 if taken from a genital location. If you received oral sex in the days leading into 7 March then it is 50/50 as to whether this is HSV-1 or HSV-2. You could contact your doctor and confirm if the swab was actually typed (which is a second test where fluorescent antibodies for HSV-1 and HSV-2 are added and see which one 'glows').  If that test wasn't done then you do not know type. If you have oral HSV-1 yourself (cold sores) then this will be HSV-2. Does your partner have oral HSV-1? It is somewhat strange for him not to rush and test - many people have a 'reaction' if they truly do not know their status and have concerns that you infected them etc. (not initially rational of course). This indicates he may know his status - or maybe he just isn't simply the sharpest tool in the shed!?

      I had flu like symptoms and ulcers on my vagina . They did a culture and I tested positive for hsv2. I asked my partner to get tested he agreed but I’m not sure if he will cause he hasn’t said anything else about it.
