5 weeks in, a bit scared and would appreciate help


Recommended Posts

To preface, I've read almost all of the topics on the right column of the forums and have found them very informative.

On November 28th, I made out with a girl for like 30 seconds. About a week later on December 6th, we made out some more and she gave me oral. The oral in question was half blowjob and half handjob, lasting about 20 minutes. She tells me after that she has herpes (I later learn type 1 and 2, I'm guessing both in both spots) and has had it for 4 years. I drove home fast in a panic and told my mom who got me a doctor's appointment that same day. Just hours after my encounter with said girl, I had my blood drawn for an IgG test. 2 days later the results on HSV-1 and HSV-2 came back negative, with no IgM value given. I thought I was free and clear until about a week ago I noticed bumps under my penis head which I later learned are Pearly Penile Papules. Researching on the internet caused me to discover that the doctor had given me the blood test too early and my results could have been a false negative. I haven't experienced any noticeable symptoms yet as of today except for on Monday 1/3/2011 I found a tiny spot under the head of my penis about the size of the tip of a ballpoint pen that had dead skin on it. Habitually, I brushed the flakes away (took almost no effort to do so) and have had a tiny red spot there as of today, 1/7/2011. The red spot has not grown, it not raised and has never been raised. I think it may have faded some, but I am unsure. I had my mom look at it and she said it just looked like new skin.

I'm getting another blood test taken 1/12/2011 (which would put me at 5 weeks 3 days). My question that I mainly want help with is, does everyone figure since I haven't shown any blisters/swollen lymph nodes/rashing/itching that I'm clear this far away? I know from reading here (mostly RealistGal's posts, so helpful) that about 70% of herpes carriers don't know it and are asymptomatic. I've had two doctors (one I talked to yesterday on 1/6/2011, a family friend) tell me they'd risk their medical licenses that I don't have it along with stories from my Mom saying that one of her friends got married to a guy with genital herpes and had unprotected sex with him for a year trying to concieve and never caught it.

I'm sorry for the wall of text, I just want to be thorough. Can someone please tell me I'm going to be all right?

Another question I have is about the itching and burning. Where does it mostly itch/burn? And what does it feel like? Is it persistant and sharp like a mosquito bite? Is the burning like accidentally getting cologne on your privates? I appreciate all input.

hbrnghn.... well so far not real symptoms but in some cases the OB might be so insignificant people don't really notice it and that's why 70% of people that has it doesn't really know they have it. in your case I would actually wait even a bit longer to get the test done because if what you have is an OB it seems too mild to be giving your body something to fight, I tested negative twice after my first ob.

About the itch... well to me it seems like a mosquito bite you can't stop scratching.

On regards to what you want me to tell you, it doesn't matter if you test positive or not, you'll be ok, everything will be fine and this virus is not larger, bigger or meaner than any of us.

Good luck

      Hey @WilsoInAus ok thank you, I will do my best to move on and stop trawling forums haha. 
    • WilsoInAus
      Hey @sgt98 but there is no feasible infection or outbreak to suppress and antivirals do not suppress an initial outbreak in any event 
    • sgt98
      Thanks @WilsoInAus I understand apologies for this but the only other thing I am worried about is that I did take a course of Famvir on day 1 as I felt like I was having an outbreak of cold sores and am worried that has suppressed the initial outbreak genitally

      Hi @sgt98 it is not feasible to obtain a HSV-2 infection from receiving oral sex - only HSV-1 is feasible but you've already got that and immunity from any further infection with HSV-1. You do not need any further tests for HSV. You're feeling regret, try to forgive yourself and calm down, let the rational take over. You know the answer here and it won't be long until you believe it too.

      Hi @NerdP423 and welcome to the website. You raise a lot of points and I think the best way to address your concerns is add some comments at each key point. I've copied your note again below and added these comments in square brackets. I appreciate any insight (even speculation) as to what has been going on with me. I'm a 37y/o M. I last was intimate with a new partner on 2/11/2022, and a few days later started having a huge amount of discomfort in my face. [The first thing that happens though is that herpes causes lesions or at least some skin based disruption. Other symptoms are then related to the actions of the immune system responding to the virus. Without lesions, it is highly questionable that the ailment is related to herpes, yet testing is useful if you have concerns as you have done so.] About a month after that [herpes causes issues within days, if the first 'symptoms' are a month later - its extremely unlikely they are related to herpes], significant discomfort downstairs, however every test I have ever taken for HSV 1 and 2 has been negative. Here are the details: Face: Previously, some significant tingling and itching on the right side of my mouth, lips and chin (still there, but milder) [herpes does not cause general tingling and itching, it can cause a reasonably concentrated feeling of itch/throb from which a herpes lesion appears within hours]. Occasional hot flashes near my right eye, cheek and ear [herpes does not do this, it may be a immune response to something, or stress]. Sometimes it will feel like the skin is crawling on the right side of my face [herpes does not cause a general crawling sensation]. Never seen anything that looked like a traditional cold sore [that's extremely telling, even people with associated atypical symptoms will have experienced herpes lesions]. Occasionally, the left side of my face will have a momentary feeling of skin crawling, but it's so mild that I am not really worried about it. Downstairs: Thankfully, most of these are now milder than they were before. Occasional momentary pinch of pain at the base of my genitals. [herpes does not cause a general pinch feeling.] Aching pain in my boxer area (groin, leg folds) [nor this] Occasional feeling of cold in my boxer area, butt, or lower back. ( also in my shins and occasionally even my arms) [nor this] On 4/30/2022, I had been in discomfort for almost two months. I scratched an itch, noticed it hurt, and then checked - I did have an open ulcer down there. Took myself to the ER to get swabbed, came back negative. [If this was a PCR then this will be very conclusive.] Practitioner said it may come back negative because it was already open. However the lab report noted that it definitely didn't look like what you'd expect a typical first herpes outbreak to look like [how would the lab know??]. All blood tests negative so far. I had two western blots, the second one was nine months after exposure. [Two negative Westernblots!!! Many that's real convincing]. All other swabs also negative. I went to urgent care, because I know the timeliness of when the Swab is taken matters. One time, a swab was not done, because practitioner said it was folliculitis and wouldn't swab it (It was at my belt line). [Belt line is highly unlikely to relate to herpes.]   A blood test revealed I had low-ish B12 (technically in range, but at the very low end, especially for a man of my size). I had a series of B12 injections, and I am taking a B12 supplement. I am not taking any lysine or arginine at the moment. I was taking the Arganine to see if I could induce an outbreak. [This is irrelevant, there is no known linkage between herpes outbreaks and arginine/lysine intake - its a myth - and B12 infers nothing.] I think what I am asking is - has anyone here ever repeatedly tested negative over and over again over long period of time, before getting a definitive answer, be a positive test, or something else? [The answer to this is: Extremely few people with a HSV-1 infection and even more rarely HSV-2 test repeatedly negative on Westernblot and actually carry the virus. Of the cases that I know of that had delayed detection by a swab and negative blood tests in the meantime (and that's only 3-4 cases), they had some form of lesions within days of infection but did not obtain a swab for various reasons and then obtained a positive swab of a subsequent lesion with the record being 11 months later. A couple of the cases did have some 'background' symptoms they thought might be related to herpes but that isn't ascertained and some did not have any unusual symptoms at all apart from the lesions. Hence as you did not have lesions around your mouth or lips within days of the last sexual encounter as is exceptionally common for a primary oral HSV-1 infection, that pretty much rules out herpes orally as it is. The fact that you had no genital symptoms for a month also rules out genital herpes. I am not aware of anyone at all who has genuinely gone on to test positive by swab or blood in your specific circumstances. There are hundreds if not more than a thousand experiences on this website alone that are similar to yours that are truly negative for herpes I'm one of them!]
