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.

      As I understand it, if you take it several times it will be different each time.  Its the way the tests works.  Mine were back and forth within that range.  If I take it again  I could be higher or lower but I will be in the positive range.

      That's interesting. When you say it was between those numbers, do you mean it climbed slowly, or went back and forth? I'm curious because I had a second test and it came back lower than the first one. It went from 1.60 to 1.21 after 7 weeks.

      The numbers don't really mean much except whether positive or negative.  Ive had 4 tests within the last 18 months and all were between 1.3 and 1.6 for hsv1. Sometimes the low numbers can be false positive for hsv2 but false positives are less frequent on hsv1.  Im like you.  Im assuming I became positive in my early childhood as I've never had a breakout.  I do think your body gets better at managing the virus as you get older.  Ive even heard of some people seroconverting to a negative result on the test but they still have the virus.
