Can't figure out what this is..

Here is my story, last july i noticed 2 lil bumps on the shaft of my penis right under the head of it, and i didnt think much of it because it looked like pimples , so around October, I saw my family doctor and there was bout 3 on me at the time and he told me me it was pimples, so I had to go to the urologist a few weeks later for something else and he told me they could either e pimples or warts and he said if they still are on me in 6 mts come back and he'll take care of it so its been about 6 mts now since that visit and I now have 8 on me..so i went to my doc last mth and he told me now they're warts and they could be an std, genital warts which i couldn't figure out how since I've been with the same girl for 2 yrs in July. So I told her about it, and she went and got herself tested at the ER that night and the doc said she was totally clean and she didn't have anything, she wasn't even a carrier of it. I've done some reading on genital warts and it says if you have it you should see signs of it within 3 mts of contact and as i said i've been dating her for 3 mts and right after we started dating, i went and got myself tested and i was clean and she did the same and she was clean back then also. I used to have alot of warts on me on my hands when i was in high school i'm 23 now and i had to get em removed like 3 seperate times, but i never had em on my pen is before, and i figured if they were normal warts and not the std kind they'd sread on me again, but they haven't, these have been on my since last july, but i have no std-like symptoms that would lead me to believe that they are the std genital warts, other then they've gone from like 2 to 8 since last july.

My q is can you get normal warts on your penis like i had on my hands years ago and they not be and std? What does it sound like i might have? i dont go back to the urologist for like 3 more weeks and the worry of this is really getting to me so i dont know if i should go back to the ER or not, but if i had the std genital warts my gf would've had em too since we've been together for 2 yrs now, we would've just been passing it back and forth, but she's totally clean so i don't know what this could be. Any help and or advice is much appricated, thanks.

It sounds like HPV - I can't even begin to tell you what I don't know about it - I'm still learning - I've posted elseewhere what I know - I'll find the link for you. You could have got the virus anytime - so many people have it and don't know. Women don't know because sometimes the warts are so small and internal that you can't see them. I doubt you got this knowingly. I'm amazed that they tested your gf - I couldn't be tested.... hhmmm... annyway - condoms condoms - you are more contageous with warts present - you will need to have them removed - laser - cryo (freezing) or surgical - I was told it's painful but doable - prepare yourself - you will be fine OK?. I'm no expert on this whatsoever... limited knowledge - go to gotHPV.com they have good links for info.

Good luck.

      Hi "Jeremy"..... I agree, the topic of your HSV status does not need to be something you disclose too soon in a developing relationship..... get to know each other first....see how it's going and as it progresses, then the HSV issue will naturally need to be revealed.... it's my personal opinion though that before there is any sexual encounter you ought to disclose your HSV status.... I know some will disagree with me on this but, I think it is morally wrong not to disclose first.  This can be a make/break situation for most people but, again, I feel it is simply wrong not to give the other person the whole story since your decision not to disclose could put their health at risk.... that is simply not an option in my opinion.  Looking back to my "pre-HSV" life I most certainly would want my partner to disclose their HSV+ status before intimacy so that I could make my decision as to whether I want to take that risk or not....

      Thanks, CHT. I appreciate the feedback. The whole trauma of going through this has led me to figure out a lot about myself and my attachment wounds, so I'm taking courses to come out of this better. This girl really was my dream woman in so many ways, it's been the hardest heartbreak to deal with ever. I'm truly in a lot of pain, but using the pain as fuel to launch that new business and work with coaches. I also opened up to my family about HSV, so my parents and sister know now, and they were very loving and accepting of it. Since opening up about it, I feel way better around this thing. After opening up, I also found out that some mutual friends in our family have discordant couples who are married with children, so HSV hasn't stopped them from living a loving life. The thing is... all of these couples I mention did not disclose until 6-8 months into the relationship. So now I'm thinking it might be better not to disclose until I know things are very serious. I'll of course stay on the medication and use protection, but maybe this is a better route than disclosing upfront and scaring women off.

      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.
