Help...any Advice Please!!!


Recommended Posts

Im new to this. I am in my early 20's. This whole week Ive been dealing with depression wondering what my results are going to be.... My culture came out negative. I am waiting for the herpes select blood test. Im really scared because Im in a new relationship. About 3 days after my boyfriend and I had sex, I was having a hard time after urination and it hurt to wipe. So I looked in the mirror and noticed my labia was really swollen and I had a yellow lesion. Are herpes yellow? My doctor says he still thinks its herpes. Oh and also I have a case of yeast infections so I am being treated for that, he also said my PH level is not balanced and gave me something for that as well. Hopefully I get the blood test result tomorrow. Reading up on it, I get a better understanding, its just the fact that I may have infected someone I cared about or maybe he infected me but people dont understand. He got really mad at me because I told him my result was negative and he swore hes been tested. Sometimes I wonder if hes lying or if hes scared too but wont admit it. Because people are quick to admit theyve been tested for everything. I always wonder if I had it before and didnt know it.

I have a few questions, hopefully someone can help.

1) Are herpes lesions Yellow?

2) I read about itching...Do you itch after your outbreaks and if so where exactly do you itch? (Im experiencing itching but its not anywhere near my labia, lips or anythign like that its as if I shaved and) hair is growing back)

3) Does anyone have any photos? (Everywhere I look, the cases are so extreme)

Is it painful? If you are getting any of the symptoms then I think you need to see a doctor:

  • swollen lymph glands
  • painful inflamed blisters develop around infected area
  • headache
  • muscle ache
  • fever
  • vaginal o discharge
  • infection of the urethra causing a burning sensation during urination
  • a burning sensation in the genitals
  • lower back pain
  • small red bumps may appear in the genital area following earlier symptoms, later developing into painful blisters, which crust over, form a scab, and heal.

Let me tell you that herpes has no cure and can only be controlled via anti-viral medicines……I have been taking Acicvir; http://www.drugdelivery.ca/s319-s-ACICVIR.aspx since 5 years. 60% of people having this disease are not aware that the have it……so please consult a doctor as soon as possible.

So the blood work came back positive. I have the antibodies for it. So now what? Im guessing I had it in the past. Now what? What do I tell my new boyfriend. Obviously my first outbreak was with him. Otherwise I probably wouldnt have known. Hes 12 years older than me too.

I was diagnosed last week, and the guy I was dating was 14 yrs older than me. He gave it to me, that bastard. Any ways I am still in shock, and just have been reading a lot about it. I haven't had any outbreaks but I am scared. I would suggest telling you new boyfriend and having him checked out, if he doesn't have it you may have received it from a prior relationship, but if he does it could be him. I in my early 20's also. I feel like the older guy took advantage of me, so tell him to get tested and ask to see his results.

      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.
