Hello. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Lets see how do I even start something like this.

In the past 9 months I was with 5 girls. Spread out over that time. The contact included mostly everything and while protection was there it doesnt matter cause I was not wearing anything at times too. From what I know their reputations were fairly good but obviously it doesn't matter since I slept around so much. The last one was about 4-5 months ago. Here are things I noticed that were out of the ordinary.

1.) about 6 inches from me genital region on my left thigh a bump appeared. It itched and I was busy through those times so I just impulsively itched it. It caused it to swell. After I itched it a lot i scraped it and that caused it to burn. So a.Im not sure if it was going to burn. B. I can not give a definate answer if it was going to form a blister.

During this time about 1 inch from that one another one appeared and yes I was itching it too. I applied a anti fungal medicine for things like athletes foot on them and one went away leaving a scar (I ITCHED it bad) and the other one didnt spread. Well one of course doesnt itch anymore because it is gone. The other one just stayed there and I got into the routine of work/sleep/rinse/repeat. So everytime I noticed it I just ignored it and went on. Well it hasnt spread and it never formed a blister or anything resembling a pimple. But now and then it itches. I am hoping it is anything from a fungus to a ingrown hair (I shaved down there around that time) But I dont see how a ingrown hair could last that long (i have no experience with them and at my age you dont just ask people about anything that could be taken as anything resembling a STD). Has anyone had any symptons like this? I have been very stressed out and would think if i was going to have another outbreak it would of happened or had been huge...PS. There is nothing on my genital region out of the ordinary.

2.) It burns when I urinate at times. I dont know where these glands are or whatever that are supposed to swell, maybe its them. But I feel like other than it burning when I urinate a pain coming from deep down my uretha (sorry for spelling) of course I am hopeful this is a UTI. I dont know how you get them but I do know I tend to hold "it" as long as I can sometimes before I go. Nothing is tender to the touch.

I am hopeful that I can see a lot of reasons why these are just opportunistic symptons that came about at the same time but I am very leary about it all. I will be getting tested shortly. However, any insight anyone can provide me with on this matter would be greatly appreciated. I know I will hopefully have a definate answer soon I always like to arm myself with info. In this case: Has anyone had these same symptons? I know the symptons can vary and vary greatly, but with anyones knowledge how common or uncommon are these? I know no ones not a doctor here but any gut feelings? I will always be hopeful but I dont want to be unrealistic.

Thank you for your time. I appreciate it.

PS. To every guy/girl here that blames this on someone else. I can not see how this in the end is anyones fault but yours. That goes for me too. I can see how it is very hard to admit the possibility of having a STD let alone admitting it. So why would anyone just flat out give an answer of "Yes i have this or that."? Besides, if they said that, how many people do you think you would of told? Enough to ruin their life? Lust is a strong thing and I wasn't strong enough to allow myself to think rationally and clearly with my decisions. I would think that a lot of you are the same way.

Wish me luck.

      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.

      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.
