Newly diagnosed, masturbation question


Recommended Posts

I just found out I have contracted herpes. I have had numerous sexual partners and knew that there is no escaping getting an STI if you have more than a certain number of partners(I think after 15 the chances are really good you will receive a gift from the STI fairy). I accepted the risk, wore protection always, and just did the best I could, but now Ive got the herpes. I guess I now know what it means when someone says,"Its all fun and games until someone gets herpes." I would have preferred warts, but I got the one I least preferred. I guess there is always the chance I could get those too..lol.

But my question is this, can I transfer the herpes infection to different parts of my penis by masturbating? I only got the out break on the base of my shaft (the part the condom didn't cover), only a single bump. Could I tranfer it too the head of balls? I thought not because I move around all day with my dick in my pants rubbing the herpes around everywhere anyway, so I am guessing masturbating is the same thing?

Thanks again rockout.gif

genital are genitals, the genital herpes area- is pretty much penis/vagina, surrounding area(base) until the crease of the thighs then all the way under(balls/perineum) and around to the top of your butt crack. so yes indeed you might notice a outbreak on your balls one day- but you cant spread it to the balls specificaly. but you can spread it to your mouth, or stomach/skin/hands (whitlow)

Its actually still possible to spread the virus around to other areas but it only happens if you either have an active visible outbreak that you can see and touch it or run over it while masturbating, or if you are shedding the virus without visible symptoms and in that case you could spread it around without realizing it and might not even see anything still. My boyfriend didnt believe that could happen and it didnt for a long time because he masturbates in the shower and uses soap as a precaution, and doesnt do it if he sees anything visible...but a few weeks ago he did it when he noticed a little redness in an area and thought nothing of it, and the next day or two he had the redness and little spots in areas above and below where he saw the redness ....lasted 6 days....so just be careful. Try not to do it if you see anything that could be an outbreak....redness, or if your itchy there, or anything...always wash hands and if possible do it in the shower with soap so you lessen the chance of it spreading because soap and water kill the virus. Hope this helps you out a bit.

Thank you very much for your answers. I have only had this for a week, and it is really mind blowing. I am still coming to grips with this.

i just masterbate as normal, ob or no ob, then wash my hands after... same with sex, after me and the GF finish we go bathroom and clean eachother - can be erotic if u make it that way.

and she doesnt have HSV, and so far so good.

Do u guys wear condoms? I had sex with my girlfriend twice before I knew what my little bumps were & she went to get a test & came up negative while mine came up possitive. Now I am scared to have sex with her because I don't want to give it to her...

      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.
