My symptons. Any help would be so appreciated!

I had protected sex with a condom with a new guy I've been dating for the first time. I hadn't had sex in like 5 mos or so.

Anyway, he was extremly large. He was as thick as a coke can.

Intercourse was very painful, but I kept going.

I was immediately very sore afterwards, and the very next day i was in so much pain that it hurt to walk or pee or anything.

I thought i was just really dry and raw. Well 4 days later i was still in pain, so I decided to look at myself down there with a mirror. I found what looks like blisters, but not like anything that herpes looks like online.

Even so, I was very concerned. I went and got tested today and the Dr was mean and basically said it might be herpes. I don't have any of the other symptoms and have been in pain immediately after the encounter, so how can that be herpes? Does it occur that quickly?

The blisters i have feel soft and white as if it's healing like a normal blister and hurt alot less that at 1st. It's day 5 now and I have to wait a few days for the results. But I'm so scared and worried, I won't be able to eat , sleep, or work til I find out!!

Does this sound like herpes??

I would suggest leaving unnecessary detail that has no relation of having HSV1.

Here is some info that might help you out:

Lol, ag I don't mind the details - helps put the whole image in your mind as I'm sure some of us have had similar experiences - I know I have! lol And if we are having intercourse then we have to be mature enough to be at ease with all it entails.

To me, it could be and it could not be.

I'm not sure about this, as I am very new to herpes - Only known about me having it for a month now - well one of the sets of info I came across said that the first Out Break can happen 10 to 12 days after you get it.

But then when you speak to the members on this forum - some have had it for YEARS with no OB and then one day Voila!

All I would do is what you have done - get yourself tested.

The condom doesn't protect all of you - there are exposed sections of skin.

Let us know!!

p.s. its better to know that to not know - even if innocence sounds like bliss...its not :)

      I am fortunate enough to live near one of the most prestigious hospitals in the USA that rates high in infectious disease diagnosis & treatment. I went to a specialist and asked direct questions including about casual sex. Firstly, I have ghsv1. She said: Casual sex is NOT off the table. When someone chooses to have casual sex, they are accepting the risk of contracting an STI. There is no obligation to disclose in this situation unless going without a condom. The risk is extremely low from a one time protected encounter . Don't do it if you are having symptoms. If you have sex with this person repeatedly, especially if you go without protection then you should disclose. If someone rejects you for it she says he's an asshole and a germaphobe. Because it's no big deal

      I wanted to validate your choice. He saying 500mg. Plus he was saying it was his favorite for HSV.

      Immediately after it clears Phase 3, they might price Pritelivir in an exorbitant fashion and only prescribe it to immunodeficient patients (AIDS). I'm also curious how fast HSV is expected to evolve resistance against Pritelivir.

      So I disclosed for the first time last week. I was feeling confident after reading all of the positive disclosure stories out there. I was armed with the stats and presented the information in a calm manner as recommended. I was happy to find out that the guy already had a lot of knowledge about it because had an ex w the same issue. It was nice to have sex without having to worry about harboring a secret, I felt normal for once   I got a text from him in the AM and I was hoping for the usual "had a great time, can't wait to see you again" but instead he was blithering on about being paranoid about the contact. We exchanged one more message that day, and today I sent one, no response..... pretty certain I've been ghosted.  I am back to that dark place where I feel like I'm unlovable / unfuckable dreg of society. I'm a single parent which doesn't help, nobody wants a relationship w someone like me... add the herpes and I might as well be a 400 lb amputee on welfare with an IQ of 70. I feel like I am going to have to eventually "settle" for someone that is willing to be with me, but I don't really like them. I feel that a man that is willing to accept this is probably an unwanted outcast himself.  So ultimately I fear I will have nobody, or settle for a guy that disgusts me

      Maybe I should up my intake of olive leaf?
