Am i just freaking out?


Recommended Posts

Its been about 4 days since i had sex. The night after the sex i started to feel very tired and very dazed. The next morning after that i noticed that my penis was kinda sore but just thought it was from the rough sex. Ever since then i have noticed that the area around my balls have been kinda itchy and i have felt like i have the flu but without the puking. I went to get checked today but the doctor did not notice anything that "looked" strange. It has been difficult to find info and pics on early stages of the virus. It seems like alot of people did not even notice they had it until their first Out Break

Does any one else remember what kind of syptoms they had when they first got infected or does any of this sound familiar?

Any help would be much appreciated.. Thanks

Herpes for most people forms blisters. Since you don't have any, your doctor did not think you have herpes. However that is not always the case.

If you do develop blisters, go to your doctor and have them swabbed. If you never get them, wait 4 months to get a blood test.

And stop reading about herpes until you get an accurate diagnosis about what you have. There are dozens of bacteria and other virus' that can cause what you are feeling. Many people obsess when they read too much.

Good luck!

      Okay.... makes sense.... I hope it is helping.  Again, I would ask about a Rx for valacyclovir instead of acyclovir.... valacyclovir gets more acyclovir into your system than taking straight acyclovir.

      Hi @Throwaway765 yes that all makes sense and you’ve pretty well reached the right conclusions except for a very significant fact!! You are right, receiving genital HSV-2 from oral sex is unheard of, just not feasible given how people have it and whether it actually sheds in infectious quantities or not. Safely rule this out. Now HSV-1; once you have this as you do orally, you have immunity against infection anywhere else on the body, it is also not feasible.  The symptoms you describe are also not related to herpes in the absence of lesions.

      Thanks for your response! I received unprotected oral 10 weeks ago and immediately after had stinging in my glans and weird nerve pain. I am positive for HSV1 due to cold sores I got as a child, but as recent as 9 weeks after this exposure have tested negative for HSV2.    im nervous that I may have acquired hsv1 again on my genitals since HSV2 is rarely acquired from oral sex and doesn’t shed hardly at all, but haven’t seen any sores yet. Just weird symptoms and this started recently in my buttcrack when I was taking antibiotics.   Any advice or perspective would be greatly appreciated. @WilsoInAus

      Hi @Throwaway765 and welcome. There is absolutely no concern over this being related to herpes. Something must be concerning you as to the possibility of herpes… what is it?
