Unsure If I have Herpes


Recommended Posts

Hi! I am a 20 year old male and I have been experiencing a burning sensation in the tip of my penis for some time. Around 2 weeks ago I had a mini sore right at the opening of my urethra, I squeezed it and some clear, bloody fluid came out. The next morning within 12 hours of this happening I got a culture test for HSV 2 and a urine test Chlamydia and Gonorrhea, they both came back negative. About 5 days later I break out with a heat rash type thing with itchy hives all around my pubic area and upper thighs, again all this time experiencing a light burning sensation at the tip of my penis. I went back to the same urgent care and got another culture around the tip of my penis, she swabbed into my urethra and made sure it was a good sample. This too came back negative. Now I still have the same burning in my penis as well as a red sore that is not particularly painful to the touch on my shaft that started off by peeling, although yesterday I had been squeezing and rubbing this area of my penis excessively and this morning I had masturbated twice before noticing it. I have had unprotected sex with two sexual partners who both claim to be tested and clean. One girl I had sex with two months ago most recently and she ended up testing positive for chlamydia, her nurse got me the antibiotics without being tested. The most recent girl I had sex with about three weeks ago and she said that she got tested three weeks before we had sex and that she had only had one other partner a week before that test.  I just want to know if you guys think this is herpes. Thank you!

      @WilsoInAus do you really thing that above my symptoms are Herpes related? Or it may because of Herpes zoster shingles? Bcz of this my Igm is positive?

      @WilsoInAus i requested my partner, but they are refusing from testing and saying they dint had any symptoms. Now the only way i left is to wait untill 12 weeks window period right? I am not getting what to do in this case. Any suggestion for any other tests?

      Hi "Jeremy"..... I agree, the topic of your HSV status does not need to be something you disclose too soon in a developing relationship..... get to know each other first....see how it's going and as it progresses, then the HSV issue will naturally need to be revealed.... it's my personal opinion though that before there is any sexual encounter you ought to disclose your HSV status.... I know some will disagree with me on this but, I think it is morally wrong not to disclose first.  This can be a make/break situation for most people but, again, I feel it is simply wrong not to give the other person the whole story since your decision not to disclose could put their health at risk.... that is simply not an option in my opinion.  Looking back to my "pre-HSV" life I most certainly would want my partner to disclose their HSV+ status before intimacy so that I could make my decision as to whether I want to take that risk or not....

      Thanks, CHT. I appreciate the feedback. The whole trauma of going through this has led me to figure out a lot about myself and my attachment wounds, so I'm taking courses to come out of this better. This girl really was my dream woman in so many ways, it's been the hardest heartbreak to deal with ever. I'm truly in a lot of pain, but using the pain as fuel to launch that new business and work with coaches. I also opened up to my family about HSV, so my parents and sister know now, and they were very loving and accepting of it. Since opening up about it, I feel way better around this thing. After opening up, I also found out that some mutual friends in our family have discordant couples who are married with children, so HSV hasn't stopped them from living a loving life. The thing is... all of these couples I mention did not disclose until 6-8 months into the relationship. So now I'm thinking it might be better not to disclose until I know things are very serious. I'll of course stay on the medication and use protection, but maybe this is a better route than disclosing upfront and scaring women off.

      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.
