wondering about the odds


Recommended Posts


i had unprotected oral sex with a very promiscuous female. i developed either chlamydia or non-specific uritis. i was put on anti-biotics and it went away. a few weeks later i developed some herpes related symptoms, i.e. red bumps and the end of my penis tingled, but there were no blisters.

which leads me to my question, is it herpes? and if it is, is it type 1 or type 2. what are the odds of contracting genital herpes from oral sex?

the odds are extremly high, since it was unprotected - and "with a very promiscuous female"

cant tell u what type u have, unless u know what type she was.

but genital herpes, from oral sex is very very common

If there is an open sore on the mouth, or should I say no sore and viral shedding then that is how he could get genital herpes from the girls mouth.

If there is no intercorse or genital-genital contact how would it be possible to get herpes on his penis.His mouth i can see getting infected!

if she gave him oral sex> and she had oral> he can get genital.

Doesn't sound much like typical herpes to me..

but, of course, nobody can make a diagnosis over the Internet, even if we were doctors, which I'm not.

The actual risk of transmission from a single contact with an asymptomatic person is relatively low, not zero, of course, but low. It doesn't matter if the other person was what you consider to be promiscuous or not, the question is whether they had oral herpes or not and whether they were shedding virus at the time. Besides there's a pretty good chance that you already have HSV1, the cold sore virus, since it's very prevalent in the population as cold sores. The person saying that they've never had cold sores doesn't mean much as most people with the virus don't have any recognizable symptoms.

Here's the deal.. If you get symptoms again, get to a doctor or clinic and have them take a sample for a type-specific culture or PCR test. If you don't get symptoms, wait until at least 12 weeks after that incident and get a type-specific blood test, such as the HerpeSelect IgG for both types.

Now, if the blood test comes back as positive for HSV1, it really won't tell you about the incident in question since it will not tell you the location of the infection, but at least, you'll know your status.

      To give some context I hve been suffering with this for the last 6/7 years this came about after I had varicella zoster on the inside of my body a week after I started getting clusters of spots on the top of my buttock they are not painful as such can be itchy at times but majority of the time I don’t feel it when I have an outbreak. I’ve been to various doctors who say it’s a fungal skin infection or a bacterial skin infection. I’ve asked if it’s herpes but they will say it’s not without even testing it.

      Hello there @momma267 and welcome. There is no reason to believe that what you have there is other than a pressure sore, something that has emerged from rubbing with clothing or butt cheeks and exacerbated by bacteria or yeast.  Note that the first you’d learn of herpes is unlikely to be on your butt, instead where it enters your body, this is usually within the vaginal lips for females.

      So to begin with, I am 26 and have been with the same partner for 8 years. I have only been with three people ever, one completely protected and the other we were both our firsts. I got this rash on my but while pregnant and my doctor said she was testing for it and I'm so confused. I've had two babies, breastfeed, and never had anything as much as a cold sore. Does this look like something anyone has experienced? I used fragrant soap down there and am hoping it's contact dermatitis or a heat rash from sweating and gaining so much weight.  Advice would be helpful. I'm stressing out a bit as I am pregnant.

      Hi, it is me again, apologies for the recent influx of posts. I've noticed a slightly raised area on the middle of my top lip with what i feel are some bumps. i do have a habit of biting my lips a fair bit and this area is frequented by my teeth. I haven't noticed any unusual/abnormal tingling or burning or pain sensations. the photos are a bit difficult to focus on them but do these seem like the start of cold sores? note: I will be visiting the drs for an std checkup in the coming week. https://imgur.com/gallery/YLVA5us
