Well, he could have transferred it to you via oral sex. That's a pretty common way of passing it from one person (who has oral herpes) to another (who gets it on their genitals). Isn't there a free clinic you could go to in your area to be tested? Until you find out for sure, best to assume that's what it is, and take precautions not to spread it around.

There's a bunch of info on this site on caring for yourself during an outbreak, and alleviating some of the symptoms. Read up on that. If it isn't painful now, once those blisters break, it probably will be, especially when you pee. I'm not trying to scare you, I just don't want you to panic, because it does burn when you pee.

Try to stay calm. Stress only makes it worse, if it really is a herpes ob. If you can't get to a dr right away, and you assume it's herpes until you find out differently, nothing terrible is going to happen to you, aside from the normal ob discomfort. Herpes doesn't require treatment, although the meds you may get from your dr can help suppress the ob's. Your body will have to build up antibodies to fight it, though, regardless of whether you take prescription meds or not. Take care of yourself physically and emotionally. While your body is trying to fight this, you need to help it all you can...eat right, get enough rest, and try not to let yourself get overly stressed out.

I hope you can get a test done soon, but it does kind of sound like a herpes ob, although you didn't go into much detail. Only a test will give you the facts, so don't consider this any kind of diagnosis, though. When in doubt, though, best to assume that's what it is and treat it as if it's contagious. That way, at least, you'll avoid spreading anything. Good luck!

Free clinics

There is always a way you could go to a free clinic for a test there are places for people that don't have insurence. Also this may comfort you if you have hsv1 pretty much after your first outbreak its not a sure thing but you prolly won't have anymore ob's afterward hsv1 usually only reproduces in the mouth thats just how it behaves.. Now if your panic and get all upset it only makes it worse so best to just calm down.

For now I would make calls to social services maybe they can find out where nearest free clinic is. Also alot of doctors have payment plans that you can see them best thing is to look around get tested research alot online cause there is alot of self help you can get.

If there is anyway I can help let me know "hugs"

      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.

      May 13 ( day I will never forget).. a guy I was dating and I drank way to much and decided to have anal sex. We did use protection however, not enough lube, wasn’t done correctly and it was painful. So bad that I yelled out and fell off the bed. Anyway, oral was also performed on me anal and vaginal. Flash forward to 3-4 days after that. I was in the most intense pain I had ever felt. I went to a gyn she tool one look and said it looks like herpes. She swabbed me . 2 days after that, yes it’s HSV1 . I was still in pain, irritated anal area and vaginal area and It was unbearable.  today, I still have irritation and itchy and when I pass a bowel i’m in pain and the itch is crazy.     When I first was diagnoses the gyn gave me valtrex which I did not take bc I was in so much pain I could not move for 2 days.  Groin lymphs were swollen I had fever , tired etc.  I am wondering if I had taken the valtrex would it have kinda liked stopped the virus in it’s tracks enough to reproduce? Do people see a correlation between no more outbreaks and immediate initial valtrex  use ? I am 43, I never thought this wound happen as I am not a promiscuous person, I hardly date and I always use protection when I do have intercouse , have yearly std tests. I’m just so sad that i’m at this point right now . I’m trying not to get depressed but this is making my body feel miserable. I’m an avid runner and biker and mom of two teens. I feel like my life as I knew is over. I want to feel better already.
