Rough sex causing OB - how long does it take?


Recommended Posts

Hi,  I am HSV1 positive, HSV2 negative.

I'm uncertain where my HSV1 is.  I've had some suspect symptoms in the genital area a couple times, but nothing was swabbed.  I vaguely remembered having coldsores as a kid, but unsure...  Since I don't have specific knowledge of where and since HSV-1 is so common, I don't disclose (sorry, don't judge me - but that's how I've decided to handle it). 

Anyway, I had rough unprotected sex yesterday.  The woman wasn't very careful with her teeth when she went down on me as well.  Today I have a little bump just on the bottom ridge of the glans.  It's almost certainly due to an abrasion.

Still, I'm curious how long it takes people who have OBs from rough sex to get a sore.  Does it happen right away in the spot where there was an abrasion?  Or is it something which triggers an OB a day or two later?

I'm a little bit of a hypochondriac and I noticed it only after we had sex again in the morning, now I'm scared it might have developed over night and I would have passed it in the morning.

How long is a piece of string?
So many variables here. Your idea of rough sex may be another's version of tender foreplay.

A yardstick to bear in mind- Hsv commonly flares up as an OB 2 weeks or so after infection for 1st timers.

After that it's down to the state of your immune system more than the pounding your genitals take imo.

      Hey @Lcj987 and welcome to the website. You can be sure that isn't HSV-2, looks nothing like it. It is much more likely to be folliculitis or inflamed fordyce spots.

      Hey @JackThrowAway herpes causes an outbreak where it enters the body first and maybe a progressive spread. If it doesn't cause an outbreak at the entry site then it won't cause one elsewhere, it also won't 'jump' upon infection - it would be more likely that the lesions are continuous from the penis to the anus. Nevertheless, testing trumps symptoms or any interpretation of symptoms. The correct conclusive result arises when: you have a positive swab; or An IgG HSV-2 level over 3.5 (Herpeselect test).

      Slept with someone unprotected, roughly 2 weeks ago now. I felt generally unwell the couple of days after but I’d been drinking the whole weekend and didn’t have much sleep either of the days of that weekend so put it down to that. 6 days after I noticed these spots appear on the shaft of my penis. Along with symptoms of discomfort in my shaft in the couple of days prior to them appearing. No pain when urinating at all that I have noticed. They don’t hurt, itch or tingle and they don’t have fluid in from what I can see or feel if I squeeze them and have never burst? I went to a sexual health clinic to get checked up, they took bloods to do a full test and looked at the spots but said they saw nothing that concerned them but I’m not sure about that, any advice? The smaller spots under the shaft are just follicles I had diagnosed years ago and non-sti related.

      She tested positive for HSV2. No, there was nothing of that sort in that area.   However I also have ulcerative colitis so I’m on medication that makes me immunosuppressed. I have been bleeding a bit when I pass stools during the time of redness, so I’m unsure if I’m getting a flare from the colitis (from all the stress of everything) or if it’s due to the virus making it’s way to an already inflamed area and popping up as blisters that I can’t see and hence the bleeding.    I had two equivocal results (at 4 weeks and 6 weeks) that then went to a positive result (7 weeks after exposure). Combine that with some flu symptoms, redness, tingling etc. makes me feel it’s conclusive that this points to a hsv2 infection.
