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.

      And yes i have never done a hsv1 and i think i prefer not to do it cause if i have also the antibodies i would make myself more crazy about the topic that i am already... i have that in mind always of 2016 when i had the discomfort tmdown there and then i saw blisters on ex boyfriend WEIRD @WilsoInAus

      @WilsoInAus it means a lot that u answered to me! Yes you are right i have been months like this.  Cause at first how does my gyn prescribe me a topica aciclovir when she told me she did not saw anything and then the second time she saws “blisters” which i dont and she prescribes valtrex oral.  Then i do the exams and are really onfusing. the dermatologist told me he did not see anything of herpes and also another gyn I went after the two times of going to my gyn of all life who told me and gave me the meds and he told me that i did not have blisters lor sores maybe they were varicose veins there. But id weird cause no one can tell me what is was. Why would it be red and itchy and ti gling on the same part as 2016? Right. And that many different exams wow

      When was your exposure though? Wasn’t it three years ago? Any symptoms outside of the genital area are not symptoms of genital herpes. Whether that’s on your hands or back etc. What are you talking to your doctor about, seems they aren’t doing their job if they keep testing you for something that you probably don’t have that doesn’t cause the symptoms you suggest.

      I was exposed to it I truly believe that I was! My body still doesn't feel completely right! Now I have a lot of new sypmtoms like nerve pain, plus I had all the symptoms minus the sores because I had hsv1 already kinda spared me (at least I think) Body had pain on one side of the body, burning tingling, on hands and buttocks and swollen underarms. I also had a low grade fever. (which are all known sypmtoms). I'm so tired of testing at this might be next week

      Hey @Samantha1997 this is all a bit confusing for you. I’m afraid that the best interpretation I can give right now is that you have a childhood HSV-1 oral infection that is producing erratic combined IgG test results. It would seem likely that you do not have a HSV-2 infection. And likely that you do not have genital herpes. However your suspicions need investigating. clarity could be achieved with the following: - a swab of a freshly emerging lesion - IgG testing that is type specific for HSV-1 and HSV-2.
