Herpes or Balanitis

Recommended Posts



I'm terrified that I have herpes. I went to a planned Parenthood clinic after some bumps and smells and they tested my urine and told me it's Balanitis because of the smell and discharge (yeast). But now I'm worried because apparently herpes only shows up in blood tests? (Why wouldn't they do that too?!?)


That was back in August and I've thought nothing of it since it went away. I've had no new partners and no symptoms until this. It doesn't sting or burn and doesn't hurt to pee. This showed up and now I'm worrying.  I think it does look like herpes and will be seeing a doctor but I figured while I wait I'd get an opinion here.

      Got these a few days ago. They’re painless and I do have some flu like symptoms. I have an appointment on Monday to get tested.

      EDIT: I've gone and spoken to a piercer about this, and she told me that as long as I'm not having an outbreak at the time of piercing all is okay. Also any future outbreaks may prolong the healing process of the piercing. Just writing this here in case anyone finds this post in the future and wants an answer
      If this has been posted in the wrong area then I apologise, just not sure where this should go.
      I've been considering getting a Christina piercing for a while (it's an intimate piercing, not sure how much detail I'm allowed to go into if anyone wants to know exactly what it is), but I've had HSV1 genitally since August 2015. I know that when I've filled out forms for piercings in the past they've asked about any STDs/ailments and I've always ticked no (because I didn't think it was relevant for getting my ears pierced), but obviously with a genital piercing I'm not sure what the right thing to do is.
      I've not had an outbreak since about February/March of this year, so it has been 8 months since my last one, and I've had OBs very infrequently (every few months if that).
      I want to ask my local piercing studio(s) but would rather not do it over Facebook message/email (who wants to have their email address/Facebook account linked to having herpes?), so the only option I can see is going into studios and hoping that if I'm turned away that they won't recognise me again in future.
      Does anyone have any experience of this?

      (For my case: i am not diagnosed herpes. I had genital warts. 
      I can tell her a sex partner was diagnosed with HPV, and i pretty surely have it and that's why i do it with boxer short the next months. Hm.)   https://herpesopportunity.com/downloads/herpes-opportunity-disclosure-handout.pdf https://www.cdc.gov/std/herpes/stdfact-herpes-detailed.htm

      How long after diagnosis did you start to have sex again? How did he get it on the lips?

      Hi,  I was wondering if you could describe your outbreaks or how much time it passed before you where correctly diagnosed. Or your overall experience. I am freaking out and just wearing my underwear feels uncomfortable.  How did they diagnosed you? Thank you in advanced

      I THINK this will benefit us. If the FDA allows more aggressive research in the deadliest virus programs, such as HIV gene editing, then off-targeting and other safety issues might already be solved before Dr. Jerome  starts editing hsv in humans.
