Unsure If I have Herpes

Recommended Posts

Mike2026

I had unprotected sex with a girl who said as far as she knew she was clean. I experienced a burning sensation in pelvic region two days after unprotected sex and five days after went and got tested and came back negative for everything. I thought I had  lymphnode swelling in the groin and 3 different doctors examined my groin and said there was no swelling and told me that there was nothing and that I should be worried about. It has now been 21 days since I had the unprotected sex with this girl. I went to the doctor this afternoon and had him take a look at my genital region again and he said that everything checks out fine. I took another blood test which should come back in a few days. But after examining my scrotum I found this red spot that hasn't itched or burned in particular but seems a bit suspect looking. Please let me know what you guys think.

They occur naturally nothing to worry about.

goodness mate, every time you have sex you get paranoid.

If this is an issue, then mutually test  before sex.

This red spot appeared about 24 hours ago and I have been looking at it closely under a flash and don't see any vesicles formed, should this ease my mind? @WilsoInAus

You mentioned no pain or itch. That's good news. It looks good to me! When does it turn red? If it is pink then turns red after it is engorged that would be closer to fungus.

If you really want to be sure go back in twelve weeks. By the looks alone, hsv is not an issue.

      yes, get IGG testing ASAP, but be prepared for it to come back negative this first time if it is your first infection. A swab would be better if you have fresh blisters.  If they are already healed, and if its your first infection, be prepared for another subsequent OB (I'm sorry to tell you) coming soon after the first.. You can get swabbed at that one then.  Stay strong.  Support your immune system. Get rest. Take Vit. C and some other herbals might be nice...I have posted some stuff about that in the past. collodial silver gel or spray perhaps too directly on sores hugs to you

      No, no Custer. I pop it and it comes back. Thanks you so much for responding.

      @Franky26 your vows include "from this day forth" - there is no fine print that grants you annulment for previous actions and certainly not for the random assortment of herpes viruses that every person walks down the aisle with. To the extent that it was required (and I do not believe it is, although this is not relevant) your partner has been forgiven in the eyes of the Lord for all her past actions; as part of your marriage vows you are joined in that forgiveness. That blood test is notorious for false positives, Having an oral HSV-1 cold sore infection is a known risk factor for a false positive. So yes I do recommend obtaining a further ELISA test. You may even try to obtain the Westernblot from University of Washington for the definitive word on the subject.

      It is pretty definite he has HSV-2 so at least you will be concordant in that respect with no fears of passing it to him. Yes, there is a good possibility of some outbreaks within the first few months, however, this will not be a sign of your longer term experience which should improve tremendously.

      Hey @WilsoInAus   Thank you for your reply, we live in north America, she did the test here in Canada, I will attach a copy of the test below. I understand your point of view but its hard for me to cope with this. I never thought this would happen to me which I m sure most people feel the same.  yes I did took vows for better or worst but I feel those vows are for whatever happens after marriage not because of something happened in the past.  i feel like this is something that is going to remind me of her past for the rest of my life. its not easy for me to look past that.
