Freaking Out...Is this Herpes?

Recommended Posts


Hi so I'm freaking out! I can't do anything except search for symptoms. After going through a bout of health anxiety I didn't have sex for almost two years. These past two months I've had sex with 3 different girls. Two of them I had sex with once and one of them I had sex with twice and she performed oral sex on me on two different occasions. On each of these occasions the condom broke. I slept with each of these girls only a week or two apart. 

The last time I had sex, with the girl I suspect could have given me something, was early Friday morning 4/5 days ago. On Saturday afternoon I noticed a whitish liquid Coming out of my penis. On Monday I went to see the doctor. She listened to my story but didn't inspect me. She tested me for Chlamydia, urethritis and  ghonnorea. 

After taking the medication she prescribed. I noticed a tiny little sole red bump In my pubic region about two inches from my shaft. 

Could this be herpes? I'm so afraid... I was so sure it was chlamydia but now I don't know. The bump isn't noticeably itchy or painful, maybe a tinnnny bit but still im freaking out. I've attached a picture.

      It should be noted that the Gates foundation was part of a venture capital group that gave Genocea $30 million in support of their vaccine development efforts in the period when their lead candidate was an HSV-2 therapeutic vaccine (GEN-003): https://xconomy.com/boston/2012/10/10/genocea-snags-30m-from-gates-foundation-vcs-for-new-vaccines/ They have also provided 30 million dollars to the University of Washington's HSV efforts.  This time specifically on research into whether suppressing HSV results in a reduction in HIV transmission: https://honeycomb.click/topic/77503-donations-to-fred-hutch-center/page/21/?tab=comments#comment-493474  Far from inactive in HSV research they provide significant funding in the context of reducing HIV transmission.  It's a well established fact that genital HSV greatly increases the probably contracting HIV from an infected partner.

      Human trials starting next year?  Not even close. It will be several years.

      Sounds like X-vaxs' biggest concern is prevention and erradication secondary..... 🤦🏻‍♂️

      It may be small scale but at least it shows me that I'm by far not the only one who isn't willing to disclose to casual partners anymore. The damage for oneself is too high to make it worth it imho: - seduction becomes difficult as guy if they know in advance - you're very likely to become a gossip object if it happens within your social circle - you get abandoned before it even starts to get intense - you end up lonely and depressed after being abandoned for such a reason Still, that doesn't answer the question if it's better to disclose properly out of nowhere during the relationship or wait for the symptoms to appear and pretend to be surprised and fake the doctor diagnosis afterwards. At the moment I think the true disclosure would be less likely to be accepted by the partner, but in case it works it would feel better in the end because there's less of a secret kept in the long run... and of course there's lower moral burden when disclosing earlier because you're handing over responsibility of risk exposure to the partner.
