Confused and concerned

Recommended Posts


More than two months ago my GF ( 4 ½ years) and I had unprotected sex (oral, vaginal and anal) the very next day I experienced lots of itching around the tip, inside the urethra and shaft of my penis. This symptoms lasted for about 6 weeks. During this time I had 2 UT, Chlamydia and Gonorrhea test. All the test were negative. At the onset I noticed some very small scabbed over cuts or scratches. I believed these scabs were from the rough sex we performed. After about 5 weeks I began to masturbate as the symptoms began to subside. Around the 6 week we engaged in more sexual intercourse first oral and then vaginal. The very next day after vaginal intercourse I began experiencing a lot more itching and burning around my groining area. Within two days I notice several bumps on my face that looked like hair bumps ( I am very hairy and have had a beard since age 11). These bumps didn't feel like normal hair bumps they didn't hurt but dried up and left a mark. After shaving i experienced burning around my mouth, chin and neck. I immediately began researching my symptoms and thought I might have herpes. I immediately went to the doctor for a blood test. Today I got my results and they were negative.

My symptoms have subsided although not completely gone. I don't know what to do. I don't feel my primary doctor has given me sufficient care or advise. I even change (2nd doctor) and obtained my herpes test from a 3rd doctor.

Looking for some good advise. Sufficient

      When I broke out/ shed it usually was on my backside left side, my  upper crack or back right below the belt! Doggy style is my absolute favorite position which makes him very vulnerable! I think there definitely is an advantage to wearing some sexy clothes or latex! Or even the liquid gloves. I think the biggest problem is that people shave now and they nick and cut themselves! That leads them open for infection on any part of the boxer area!

      I’d build on this to say that the volume of virus is critical. It has been observed that shedding instances where there are 10^7 virions are required for a pragmatic chance to actually get through the skin and it’s natural defences. Most shedding instances are well below this threshold. I’d also suggest that for many asymptomatic transmissions, most of the virus comes to the surface during the sexual act itself. So little point testing beforehand.

      Thank you for sharing that. Very resourceful.

      I wasn't following the conversation closely, but yes, all that matters in terms of being contagious is if the virus makes it to the skin.

      @Cas9 isn't that a "technicality"? From the sound of it this means that on a cellular level there is a daily battle but at the end of the day the virus can't transmit until it is present on the skin... right? I mean the question will still be: how many days is the virus present and transmittable. The mechanism (the technicality) is important but also not important... but I could be wrong, just trying to interpret.
