4th time feeling this way! 🤦🏽‍♂️

Recommended Posts

So it’s been 4 months since I’ve been tested with supposedly HSV1 my igg was a 45.10 high, when first diagnosed I was told I could’ve had a uti which definitely was possible because symptoms were exactly the same as I read then I was prescribed to get a shot and some antibiotics, after all of that it cleared up within the week of medications being taken, my second time around it happened a month after being diagnosed with HSV1 I decided to have some protected sex which then reactived the uti I had the first time but this time it was very minor then the first one which then I told my doctor and was prescribed more antibiotics, The medication took about the same process to work after that I was good for about maybe another month then I decided I’d be clear again so I protected sex with the same partner and it came back again went again to the doctor and he prescribed me the medication he gave me the first time I was diagnosed I took it for a whole week and it never really worked I guess because my body was use to the same antibiotic but now it’s almost been a month in a half and the uncomfortablity drives me crazy, makes me feel so depressed and I work so it’s hard to have that full energy I had before all this. It sucks I wish I could just start all over because I feel disgusted in myself to know I could have something this serious and not be able to just fully get rid of it, also I believe I contacted it from receiving oral which the individual supposedly tells me that they definitely don’t have anything and I’m not very sexually actively to be honest when I received that I didn’t have any form of sex for 5 months before that, could some please tell me if this is really ghsv1 because this is plain out annoying to wake up to everyday

Not a lot to go on.  UTI symptoms are mostly during the initial outbreak.  Not during recurrences.  

therefore it doesn’t sound like herpes since it is only UTI symptoms.

Hsv can cause tingling and burning without outbreak. anxiety also can mimic uti symptoms.

Unless you have some other bacterial std, I would assume the uti symptoms are from anxiety.

Get tested for other stds, get your urine tested for uti  if you haven't and go to a specialist (dermatologist for std and urologist for uti)

      Glad to hear the Dr says you are good.  Thanks for reporting back. It helps others in similar situations.   Be safe and smart going forward.   Use condoms.

      Well update, I went to my doctor and he said everything looks normal also. I mentioned a swab test but he said it wasn’t needed. I feel better but there’s there that doubt in my mind..  I suppose I’ll keep an eye on it and go from there. Thanks everyone, I’ve learned a lot from these threads.

      @brookeb300 Thank you! I am doing the same! I think it is important to have a few potential cures in the pipeline!

      Hello, I recently hooked up with a female and the next day I noticed something abnormal near her vag. She claimed she felt nothing/has never had any sort of OB or sores down there. 4 days later I had a small pimple apear on my foreskin. Is this all just a coincidence? Could it have been from dirty hotel hot tubs and bath and different soap clogging up my pours? I’m really concerned she gave me HSV. Photos attached of my pimple 1 week later. When it first appeared I took my 2 fingernails and tried to pop it.. seemed like I just irritated the skin and made it red. Attached are photos of her and mine. We did get tested both swabbed and blood tested. I’m more worried about her results since mine wouldn’t show in the blood so soon. Should have the results by tomorrow night. I will update my unfortunate story.    https://imgur.com/a/RtarvYW

      From someone suffering from constant reoccurring OBs. After losing hope with valtrex I’m looking for people who can suggest doctors in Southern California. Any advice on different types of specialists for this virus would be great. I’m trying to save my life from this crippling disease. Thankyou everyone.
