Well.. I think I have herpes, heres my story, what ya think?


Recommended Posts

Well heres my story pls tell me if it sounds like herpes or a kind of virus or rash or something.

Well me and my gf have been sexually active for 3 months now, and weve both had 2 sexual partners togethor, and both of our partners before were sexually inactive. She hasnt done anything more then kiss and had a test and came clean. Me I have had oral with about 5 other girls. Well about 2 weeks ago I got a cold sore, wasnt a big deal ive had them my whole life even when i was never active. Well about 3 days after the cold sore i got some weird rash bumps on my back and I thought i had a rash, they were like 6 pimples in 1 spot. Well my gf was playin with them checking them out and stuff. The next day i have 2 weird bumps on my penis kind of like the ones on my back and had them in some other spots like I had a bump on my arm, and 1 on my buttocks, but then my girlfriend started getting bumps on her vagina later that night, which had me scared but it says herpes shows up about 2 days after contact, but we both had it in the same day for our first time and never had any outbreaks before. Its been about 5 days now and my bumps on my crotch are gone , the one's on my back are still there though, and hers are still on her vagina. I looked and looked at herpes pics and i havent seen any pictures that resemble what ours looks like. But today hers are getting more white somewhat resembling a blister but dosent to much. And here I am now...

So tell me what you think pls I am kind of worried but already figured I got it somehow, but I have a few Questions.

I was trying to think of how i could of got herpes, lets say I ate a girl out with genital herpes, wouldnt I of had a outbreak on my mouth?

Or lets say I have hsv 1 (cold sores) and I kissed her vagina, would that give her genital herpes so hsv2?

Thanks for any responses.

Also almost all the bumps we have are not on the vagina or penis, there spread out mostly on the sides or above it. Also we show no symptoms except mine might itch once or twice a day.

From all you have said this does not really sound all that much like herpes.

Remember Herpes travels along nerve paths. To have it travel to your back would be very uncommen.

To anwser your question if you went "down" on a girl with herpes, yes you could be come infected on your mouth..... Now you already stated you have HSV1 (typically the form that causes coldsores) from before you were active which means you probably picked it up from a freind or relative when you were just a young kid by them giving you a kiss.

You can also catch HSV2 on your lips but that is very uncommen.

2) IF you gave oral sex to a girl you could give her HSV1 on her genitals. It does not "become" HSV2 just because its downthere. In fact HSV1 is starting to become all to commen for new genital infections but is said to be more mild.

So again after reading your post it just doesent sound like herpes. Especially the fact that you both broke out at the same time. There are many weird virisus and bacteria out there that cause skin infections.

Get the sores cultured if there still "freash" or wait to get a bloodtest, but i wouldent jump the gun just yet....Hope this helps

      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.
