6 days with my nerves shot1


Recommended Posts

its been 6 days since I recieved 10 seconds of oral sex with someone with no visible signs of herpes. 48hrs later I am hit with an intense blow to my nervous system(partly cause I cheated on my girlfriend, whom I then came clean to), I still have tiredness in my legs, alittle neck soreness, and loss of appetite, alongside of an occasional tingling on my penis and tightness of the chest and some chills. No bumps or sores of any kind on my penis yet but I'm worried sick. I've been to the doctor who took a blood,urine,and swab test. I know its too early to tell about herpes but dont these symptoms sound like it. I am convinced I have it. Please help.

Do you have any reason to believe that the person you were with does in fact have herpes even though there were no visible signs? If she does, then 10 sec could be all it would take but it seems to me like its your guilt more than anything that is making you sick. If you don't have sores, then the swab test probably won't reveal anything and you will most likely have to wait several months to get a blood test.

I didnt see any signs of herpes on her mouth, but people who knew her said she was dirty. I'm over the guilt now but my body still aches and I have fatigue. I've been on Valtrex for 2 days now. I still have no visible signs of an out break but cant shake this feeling that I have it, I just dont feel right. I'm waiting for results on an hsv-1 and 2 test . How accurate will the results be? and would I see blisters form even on valtrex?, also, how long do these aches last?

      @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.
