Well....I think I have herpes....Question?


Recommended Posts

Hi, Sorry to have to meet everyone this way but thats the way the ball rolls. Anyway, woke up Sat. with a red sore bump around bottom part of vigina. Four days later, now it looks like there may be a couple and the main red bump I stared off with now looks like an open sore and yes its leaking cause when I went to pull my underware off this morning it felt like it ripped a scab off of it. It hurts to wipe it and at times it burns like crazy. I'v been putting alcohol on it. Would you say this sounds like herpes?

Also I want as much input as I can get on this please. After a woman has sex with someone who has herpes, how long does it usually take for a woman to start notice the signs. Like for me it started with a red bump and I counted how many days it had been since my husband and I last had sex and it was 21 days.

Thanks for any responces. I'v been married for 6 years now and I have been faithful and although I'm trying to make light of this, I am truely upset and disappointed. I am going to see my doctor tomorrow.

Thank you all.

how was the doctor visit?

i read your post and wanted to know how the doctor visit was and what was the outcome? i am 22 and have had some unprotected sex with more than a few guys. the only weird thing is that i don't have any bumps or weird things happening down there. it's sort of weid though..i never had a problem before but now when i shave under my arms i start to break out pretty bad. i also had some small blisterlike bumps to appear on my right side about 10 inches from my underarm...it has been a week and they are still there......i am so scared, what if it is herpes...how do you deal...this is not the first time the bumps under my arm have appeared

      Hey @Lcj987 and welcome to the website. You can be sure that isn't HSV-2, looks nothing like it. It is much more likely to be folliculitis or inflamed fordyce spots.

      Hey @JackThrowAway herpes causes an outbreak where it enters the body first and maybe a progressive spread. If it doesn't cause an outbreak at the entry site then it won't cause one elsewhere, it also won't 'jump' upon infection - it would be more likely that the lesions are continuous from the penis to the anus. Nevertheless, testing trumps symptoms or any interpretation of symptoms. The correct conclusive result arises when: you have a positive swab; or An IgG HSV-2 level over 3.5 (Herpeselect test).

      Slept with someone unprotected, roughly 2 weeks ago now. I felt generally unwell the couple of days after but I’d been drinking the whole weekend and didn’t have much sleep either of the days of that weekend so put it down to that. 6 days after I noticed these spots appear on the shaft of my penis. Along with symptoms of discomfort in my shaft in the couple of days prior to them appearing. No pain when urinating at all that I have noticed. They don’t hurt, itch or tingle and they don’t have fluid in from what I can see or feel if I squeeze them and have never burst? I went to a sexual health clinic to get checked up, they took bloods to do a full test and looked at the spots but said they saw nothing that concerned them but I’m not sure about that, any advice? The smaller spots under the shaft are just follicles I had diagnosed years ago and non-sti related.

      She tested positive for HSV2. No, there was nothing of that sort in that area.   However I also have ulcerative colitis so I’m on medication that makes me immunosuppressed. I have been bleeding a bit when I pass stools during the time of redness, so I’m unsure if I’m getting a flare from the colitis (from all the stress of everything) or if it’s due to the virus making it’s way to an already inflamed area and popping up as blisters that I can’t see and hence the bleeding.    I had two equivocal results (at 4 weeks and 6 weeks) that then went to a positive result (7 weeks after exposure). Combine that with some flu symptoms, redness, tingling etc. makes me feel it’s conclusive that this points to a hsv2 infection.
