utterly dumbfounded

I am very nervous right now, after having unprotected sex a couple weeks ago with a girl I barely knew, I honestly dont even know her name, I have a bump on the shaft of my penis. I also feel as though I have been sweating a lot more than normal at night, and my crotch has been itchy. I noticed a day or two after shaving, three or four red bumps which i passed off as ingrown hairs, because they were only around my upper pubic area. They were spread out, so I thought nothing of it. I just noticed this small bump. I feel as though these symptoms pretty much cover herpes, but I am also a definite hypochondriac. I can't get the thought/devastation out of my mind. I desperately need the help of this forum.

I think there are a lot of other things that could explain you symptoms too...if 25% of people have genital herpes you have a 75% chance of not having got it from this person. But those are just percentages...and they won't mean s**t if you actually do have herpes...it doesn't distinguish: there are virgins with it and whores without it. The best thing you can do is get a dr to look at this bumps and sores, maybe take a swab and do a blood test. That is the absolute best way to get a sure answer that will relieve your anxiety. We all make mistakes and do silly things we may regret...it is human...but there is no point worrying yourself to death because of those mistakes. Be brave and go and get a reliable medical opinion it will make you feel better...once you have that sorted you can deal properly with the any emotions you may still have as a result of the situation.

Be strong...stop worrying and good luck :-)

Hi boston, I think tiny has pretty much covered it all so I am not going to over ride her good work but I will just add that what you could be dealing with here is something as small as a reaction to you shaving, or perhaps upset skin from vigorous sex or too dryer oral sex performed on you. There are many scenarios here but there is only one way to find out. Don't be afraid..we only fear what we don't know. You will have plenty of support here should the test result come back unfavourably.
