Would love any advice on if these symptoms seem like hsv or if anyone else has had consistent negative testing yet present with intense symptoms. Doctors I have seen do not think it is hsv. But cannot give me any other explanation.
Had sex in 11/8 and symptoms started 11/15 and have wavered in intensity and changed yet been consistent through out the last 5 months.
Initial symptoms: vaginal itching, thick white discharge, anal itching, two tears in labia. Doctor thought it could be yeast was treated and with no change to my symptoms.
Following symptoms: chills, body aches, smooth bumps that burned slightly on buttock, headaches, nerve pain in hands and feet as well as wrist. Constipation and numbness on clit. Watery/bubbly discharge even though no internal lesions were present. Also had grey discharge for one day.
Next symptoms: burning sensation, tingling, cooling sensation in groin, back thighs, and buttocks. which has continued for the last 4 months with little relief. Also raw and irritated feeling in thighs and labia area. discharge goes from a sticky whiteish consistency to a thick white consistency.
Symptoms on mouth: tingling, burning, splitting, and tears on one side of lip. These seems appear off and on occasionally.
The most intense symptoms of all is the nerve pain. It feels like I cant escape it. And it is the main symptoms that leads me to believe I have hsv.
I have had no noticeable lesions, blisters or coldsores.
Has been negative for yeast, BV, and other stds.
Tears were swab with a viral culture: negative.
IgG test at 2 weeks, 5 weeks, 12 weeks 18 weeks: negative.
I have had the western blot kit sent to me, just worried about finding a doctor that will agree to sign the paperwork. Planning to get the WB to give me answers.
Partner refused to get tested for HSV and claims he is clean which makes me even more suspicious.
My girlfriend keeps saying she wants to do oral on me and "swallow". I know for vaginal sex definitely we'd have to use a condom, but not sure for oral. I know HSV2 prefers the genital area. Would it be better for her to just use her hands to avoid the extended oral contact and then just "finish" in her mouth? The "swallowing" thing apparently is important to her because she's persistent with it. So is it in semen? Having the green light to just "do it" sounds to good to be true. So I'd like to know how to do this safely. Thank you. (I was diagnosed more than 10 years ago and I'm asymptomatic)
I had sex with a girl I didint know very well and woke up with 2 medium size bumps the next day idk if it’s herpes or not thinking about getting tested it’s been 3 days .
I have oral and genital HSV1, diagnosed a little over a year ago. I am wondering, does anyone else get oral outbreaks that are primarily inside your mouth and not on your lips? When I get oral outbreaks, mine usually don't come with cold sores around my lips. The sores are only inside my mouth, usually on my gums, and they're pretty painful and annoying, as they get in the way of eating and brushing my teeth. This doesn't seem like a super common presentation of HSV1 because I can't find a ton of info about it online, but I know I'm not the only person whose oral HSV presents this way and I know they're not canker sores. I was wondering if anyone else experiences this and has any tips on how they deal with it. In particular, would love to know if anyone has any good tips for something that reduces the pain while you're waiting for the Valtrex to do its thing
I’ve made some posts earlier this month on my presumptive status.
I was tested 12 days since the initial exposure. The test results are back...
HSV 1/2 IgG Aby-HSV1 IgG, Type Spec <0.91 (0.00-0.90 index)
HSV 1/2 IgG Aby-HSV2 IgG, Type Spec = 1.27 (0.00-0.90 index)
HSV 2 IgG Supplemental Test-HSV-2, IgG Supplemental Test = Negative
All other stds came back negative. On the 10th day, white stinging cloudy discharge came out of the tip of my penis.
It still hurts to urinate, but not as intensely. What looks like “contact dermatitis” on the head of my penis but the bumps are sparsely patched and not filled with pus. On the day of my test, I was given 2 acyclovir and I felt like the symptoms went away for a few days.
No visible lesions and the culture came back negative.
But still, I was told to get retested 30 days from initial exposure (so July 18th).
I will get retested, but from the description provided above, what are the odds that the First test results are accurate and that I do have HSV2?
