I think I might have both HSV 1 & 2


Recommended Posts

I haven't tested yet, but I plan on making an appointment tomorrow. I'm so scared and just beside myself. I know it's silly to overreact about something I might not even have, but I don't see what else it could be. I've looked all over the Internet for my symptoms and it's either a yeast infection... Or an STD, most likely herpes. I don't feel like it's a yeast infection because I don't know how likely it is to have an oral infection and a yeast infection of the genitals. I have blisters on the roof of my mouth. The sides of my mouth on both sides hurt and they itch. And obviously I have itching down below. I've been stressing out about it and I feel like my life is pretty much over. I know that's not really the case but I feel like normal dating would fly out the window. I know it's not the big scary STD everyone is led to believe now that I have done my research, but people who don't have it usually don't look into it. I didn't until now. So the first reaction is, "EW!". Even though it could literally happen to anyone. I mean, everyone has unprotected sex at some point. Right? Some people are just lucky not to catch anything. And the shitty part is, a week ago I did have unprotected sex with someone I've known for 10 years. He may or may not know he even has it. But like I said I haven't tested so I can't 100% say anything. I'm just a bit freaked out. Sorry for the long post! If anyone has any other suggestions, please feel free to ease my mind.

      Yes, but every married person who I found out about that has this waited 6-8 months into the relationship to disclose it. But maybe you're right. If I had told her 6-7 months in, she'd still have Googled it and flipped out, and maybe it would have been harder then. I don't know. I don't see myself going through this level of pain and rejection so easily next time. I really don't. I'm taking the meds. I use protection. It's been almost a decade since I've had it so I'm not worried about shedding or passing it on so easily. British studies confirm that the first 2 years are the most contagious and we're passed that. I'm just over this. I've never been in so much emotional pain in my life.

      Is this herpes? I can’t find any pics that match this exactly and my symptoms don’t really match. I don’t have really any of the typical herpes symptoms other than pictured, so I figured it could be friction as I have recently been having a lot of sex with a new partner. Way more than normal. Started having unprotected sex about 3 - 4 weeks ago. These symptoms only started about 3-4 days ago. Felt burning in some areas and only some very few tiny red areas/spots appeared. Almost shiny in appearance. Seems to settle very quickly. They were only present for a day or so. Also had some very mild irritation after I pee but not during. This spot has 2 small red lumps that are now dry around the outside. It’s like it’s been rubbed off and the skin is dry and shiny underneath. It doesn’t seem to be lesion. There was no puss or any leakage, nor was the skin ever red under them. They also got better within a day or so. I still have red spots around but they are very small and not bunched together and some general discomfort but I feel it’s because I’ve touched it so much! Stressing a bit!  my research tells me friction burn/blister , Fungal ,herpes a bit of it all! I have no idea! Please help! Thanks in advance.

      I’m going to force him to get tested ! Thanks for your help !

      @EssenceL25 there really isn't a question mark around the source, it's your latest partner. The median time from infection to an outbreak of lesions upon initial infection is 4 days.  The only thing that isn't certain is the type I suggest.
