I'm confused...


Recommended Posts

Is it possible to have the prodrome symptoms of an ob, but it never materializes? Yesterday I started having some irritation in my vag area (sort of feeling like when you shave and the hair is starting to grow back), itching, but no burning. I looked and don't see any redness. I read all the threads and the talk of how it hurts really bad to urinate when there is an outbreak, I have never experienced that with my initial or my 1 recurrent ob. I guess everybody's obs are different. Another question. Before I was diagnosed, my bf performed oral sex on me when i now know i was having or getting over an ob (but the lesions, that i thought was from just having a little rough sex, had healed, yet I was still feeling the somewhat burning sensation down there). This was in early July and he hasn't gotten any sypmtoms on his lips. Is that possible? How long would it take for someone to show symptoms if they performed oral sex on someone who is has hsv2?

a lot of people get prodromal symptoms that don't materialize in an official OB. It's prolly the virus activating but for whatever reason your body stops it before it goes crazy. Shedding probably occurs while you have prodromal symptoms.

As for your BF, he might have gotten lucky, especially since it is a little harder to catch HSV2 orally than genitally (but it does happen, several on the forums have it - it seems never say never with herpes), but there is always the possibility that he could catch it asymptomatically. If he ever has another partner later in life, he really should get tested before engaging in sexual contact.

Does he have HSV2 genitally? Cause if he does, that would also make him less likely (but again not impossible) to get it orally.

He is waiting on his test results to see if he has H. If he doesn't have it, I am really going to be going crazy trying to figure out where and who in the hell I contracted this from. I was with a guy for 3 years prior to this and nothing. That was a stressful relationship so why didn't it surface then since stress is a primary trigger? This is all so confusing and still driving me crazy.

I have no idea where this came from either. I never thought in a million years I would have an STD. None of my partners ever had any symptoms. I've been with my BF for four years and I really don't think he cheated. But now looking back over my life since I've lost my virginity I have had a lot of these symptoms before, just not all together at once. I had nonstop yeast infections that wouldn't respond to yeast infection treatment. After having my c-section I had unexplainable leg pains in the morning that were exactly like the ones i have now. And I thought I had a hemorroid (spelled wrong i'm sure) after my c-sec that just went away one day....so who the hell knows. This one blister I have feels exactly like that hemorroid!!!

sounds like you have had it a while and just never associated the symptoms for what they truly were all along. Millions of people do the same and truly have no clue they have herpes until one day..........and then it all makes sense.

      https://imgur.com/a/cVi8yJY 2 weeks ago I had unprotected oral sex. Few days later I wake up with a stinging sensation in my urethra. I don't have any blisters, lesions or redness, my penis looks completely normal from the outside, but the stinging in my urethra is always there. Urinating doesn't make the pain worse. From the research I've done and how my body feels I'm pretty sure I caught genital hsv1. To make matters worse I think I transmitted it to my eyelid by touching my infected penis and then my eyelid which did develop a blister. Can anyone look at my lower eyelid and tell me if it looks anything like herpes?  I forgot to add that the blister is painless, but my eye is a bit watery. Other than that it's fine and my eyesight is good. Considering how this all developed in a matter of a week after I had unprotected sex it can't be much else than herpes..

      Hey I see that they also sell the pill form in 100 mg and 500 mg form. Do you think this is as affective? They have the regular and extract version of the pill. Which would you think is the right one to get? And how many pills per day to get the same effect of say 16 seeds?

      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.
