Recommended Posts

I had unprotected sex back in feb & march with the same person, over the past week which is 4-5 months later, I started having a burning, irritated feeling in my genitals I then found out I had a UTI which I get very often, about 5 days later I noticed 2 tiny sore looking bumps on my labia and one inside my labia which all were bleeding a little, I have no other symptoms, could it be? I have been married for over 10 yeasr but my husband & I split up for a few months when I was with the other person, would he too have had symptoms by now? Also, the 2 sores on my labis kinds just went away, no oozing or scabs at all, no itching either the sores only hurt when I pressed on them.

sypmtoms vary from person to person

The sypmtoms vary from person to person. Some people have immediate OBs and some never have OBs. It is my understanding that if your bumps are bleeding, then it's not an OB. It should also be a blister, not a regular bump. Sounds more like an ingrown hair to me. You would still need to visit your doc and get tested to be on the safeside. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Does the blister look like a blister you would have on your hand or something? All th pictures I've looked at the sores look so bad.Do herpes sores not bleed?

I also read that the vaginal sores look like the oral sores, is that true?

Most of the photos you will find on the internet are "worst case scenarios." Many folks have outbreaks that look nothing near that bad.

The problem is, nobody here can tell you what your sores are, not even if we could look at them in person. And not even if we were doctors.

Visual diagnosis of herpes is notoriously unreliable because it can look so different from person to person -- and because a lot of other conditions look similar.

The ways to get a more accurate diagnosis are:

  • by getting a lesion swabbed and cultured when one is fresh, or
  • by getting a type specific blood test that checks for IgG antibodies

Doesn't sound typical for herpes, but again, no way anyone here can tell you that for sure.

      Having HSV-2 has not bothered me at all for casual sex. I'm just avoiding sex during outbreaks, on suppressive therapy and using condoms every time with casual partners. Since my outbreaks appear on top of my penis, even during an outbreak the risk is minimal if I put a condom on as soon as I take my underwear off.  I guess it might be a slightly different case for a girl as if you have external lesions around your groin you could still infect someone even using a condom. And of course, condoms can break, which has happened to me over 10 times and caused myself to get infected in the first place.  I see it as a much more difficult now having a serious relationship, because I can't feel much with a condom on and really want stop using them. However, I don't want to put my new girlfriend to any risk - I would feel terrible if I infected her.

      Does anyone have experience about people's reactions to Herpes in Asia? Personally I live in Thailand where I also caught the virus as a condom broke 4 years ago.  Unfortunately I infected my ex-girlfriend with HSV-2. This was just after I had caught the virus myself and we had sex before I noticed and realised what it was. In the beginning, a local doctor told me I have just hurt my foreskin with my jeans' zipper and the tests came as negative. After getting tested later it came as positive.  Anyways, my ex-gf (well educated, professional, 26 years old then) she had no idea what Herpes was in the first place. She didn't really care too much about it and didn't bother to get tested. During our 3 year relationship we kept having unprotected sex as usual and she never had any issues until at the end one day. She had a very minor outbreak once and nothing after that (lucky her, no like myself who gets terrible symptoms non-stop). I know she has a strong immune system, because she was never sick despite myself having bad colds quite often. In any case, she could not care less about this virus and didn't mind at all.

      I've seen a lot of hysteria surrounding Herpes in Europe and the US. What has been your experience in South-East Asian countries like Thailand? Do people perceive HSV-2 as a worrying disease?

      The full article is behind a paywall but you could write the the authors and request a copy.

      The jury is still out as there needs to be additional experiments. Editas' results make me believe dosing was insufficient among other issues.
