Could this be herpes?


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

never thought I would ever be here but after multiple restless nights and not even being able to eat a meal I need to know. I scheduled a blood test for Tuesday... so hopefully it comes out negative.. 

so I was in a relationship for about three years got out and went off the deepend with girls. But I had unprotected sex with one girl on July 27th in the 29th I had a 101.4 fever tired as hell and stayed home from work. The fever ended up clearing up in about a day or so and I was all fine. Nothing wrong down there. On August 29th I developed an itch in my urethra. I got tested and turns out I had Chlamydia. Now I might be being a spaz but I’m noticing red spots on my shaft for about the past 3-4 days. I havent seen any blisters but idk what I’m looking for. What do you guys think? Like I said I’m getting tested Tuesday but still just want an answer... it won’t let me upload a picture for some reason :/

Hey there @Hopefullynot53 if you are thinking a herpes infection took place, then you would have had lesions within days of the sex.

Remember 99% of the time, a fever is a fever. I doubt it was even caused by the Chlamydia.

What you describe a month later in terms of an itch developing is exactly the sort of thing that happens for males infected with Chlamydia.

Hence at this stage, there isn't any reason to believe you have been infected with herpes.

      @dont quit!, Great effort by you to not pass it to your daughter. Fortunately, kissing is not the only way to show affection. I am sure you are already channelling through other means 🙂

      That is good to hear! I have my appointment this evening, so hopefully they agree it is something else. It has not changed in appearance since Friday when I originally posted also.

      Thanks Wilson. Really appreciate the answer and contribution to this community! I guess I will sweat bullets for 12 weeks to get a better answer.

      Thanks for the input, I definitely did not know that prior to getting it I did want to input that I still only have the labia swelling but it hasn't progressed any further.

      I'm sorry about your outbreak but as a Pfizer recipient that vaccine is potent and harsh with side effects. Wait until you get the second dose.
