Sex after outbreak


Recommended Posts

I was diagnosed with Type 2 herpes two weeks ago. I went on Valtrex for 10 days and my sores healed very quickly. My partner gave me the STD, so he has it too. We had sex for the first time yesterday, and now I feel sore down below. I don't know if it's from friction because we had abstained for so long of if it has opened up a sore that I thought had healed. I'm very concerned and confused.

i can relate.

i was diagnosed a bit over 2 months ago. pretty much everytime my boyfriend and i have sex we play ping pong with it. condoms suck but its our only answer. everytime we tried having sex since were both on valtrex, i got shafted, irritated as hell so we stopped. we had sex again this week this time with a condom and i have no symptoms.

i know they suck but grab some, and dont get spermicidal ones, wouldnt hurt too also get some lubrication, we all know condoms can dry out women :(

sorry girl! :(

LUBE LADIES LUBE!!! there are all kinds of wonderful, delightful, SAFE lubes to use, as well as flavored ones too. (if doing oral on him...with a condom on....)

I LOVE condoms...I have been reading posts on here where people do not like to use them, even with one nighters and this is just CRAZY to me. Like playing russian roulette.

I am in a long term relationship and we STILL use condoms. I love them. Never had a problem with them....get the fun ribbed kind....whatever. I totally disagree with most folks that they lessen sensitivity so much (for the man) that there is NO feeling whatsoever. Crock of crap if you asked me. My man likes them as they make it just a wee bitless sensitive, BUT it allows him to prolong the act!! FUN!!! But I asked him honestly in the past...do the REALLY make it feel horrible, less sensitive.

you know what he told me...that men who tell that to women are full of crap, or have some other issues with their wangs. He says they are NOT that bad.

AS for us, yes, they can cause some drying/friction....but again...LUBE if you need it!!!! I think once things get a rockin and a rollin, the lube will not be neccesary! :wink:

      I had an IGG test  and the ranges were out of range and high  HSV 1 was 42 and HSV 2 was 19 so I guess it was accurate but the problem now is I can't figure out when or who I got it from. In 2018 to 2019 when I was with my ex I was STD tested but not sure if herpes was included but my ex was supposed to get tested but refused. I experienced some trauma with him and didn't date until a year and a half later so I'm confused. The guy I dated after the ex who didn't want to be tested I told them a week ago about my results he was trying to be there for me and understanding,I told him to get tested but to request a herpes blood test , because he had no noticeable lesions or bumps ever is what he said and I never noticed any on him now he has shut down all his social media and I can't reach him. Hoping he's okay, I feel bad because in 2018 I did have what I was told it was an abrasion that tingled but at my doctor the day I was tested they told me it wasn't herpes but I think it was only a visible diagnosis. I keep having it reoccur from time to time

      Hello "FeelingLost".... your fears and concerns are understandable but, nothing you've described regarding the sexual encounter would cause you to contract herpes.... further, your symptoms are not herpes related.  Best of all, your doctor is correct, your results don't show any herpes here.  You can relax.... definitely have your GP take a look at things and see what might be causing the symptoms but, again, none of them are typical herpes related.  I wish you the best in terms of talking to your wife about this encounter.... hopefully she will understand and you both can work through this amicably.  We all make mistakes.... be careful not to beat yourself up too hard over this.... you can become so racked with guilt that you start imagining physical symptoms.  Best of luck.... and take care..... come back to the site if you have questions.

      Hi (I’m really scared and feel really disappointed in myself and worried about my future), I had oral sex with a condom almost 3 weeks ago and a massage parlor. I also received a hand job at the same time prior to putting a condom on, also may have rubbed my penis on her back a little. Did not touch her genitals I don’t recall any sores on her back. After the event she handed me a pice of TP and after I took off the condom I wiped my penis head to clear away the excess ejaculation…this is where I suspect I got infected, she had just gone pee and wiped and maybe touched a sore or something and then I got it on my penis from the tp? Idk. I’m just flailing.   After this I’ve had discomfort on the skin below the head of my penis and 4 bumps for 2 weeks now, the bumps don’t seem to have changed in size. I also had frequent urination for about a week and have had dull pain in my groin on and off. I also have some pins and needles on the sides of my abdomen/trunk that get worse when I go out in the heat or get dehydrated. I’ve had a lot of trouble sleeping, likely due to guilt and shame and worry about the future.   so I got one test done at 10 days from the event (idk know if this can tell me anything… the doctor assured me it was 100% correct and I don’t have herpes. I was not physically examined). I got a full panel std. neg for everything. HSV-1 results: IgG 0.3 / HSV-2 IgG 0.9 hsv-1 IgM = 2.2 hsv-2 IgM = 3.0 (Reference V. Negative: Less than 9.0 Borderline: 9.0 to 11.0 Positive: Greater than 11.0) I have an appointment with my GP on Thursday, hoping he can help. Will likely go to a std testing service tomorrow to see if I can get in an antiviral proactively. Plan to get tested again this week.
