I am still trying to figure out what is wrong with me 8 months later after a one night stand mistake, I don't get blisters but the penis head looks like it has small bumps aroung the meatus, maybe 5-6 but they never go away and I can always see them. The annoying thing is my buttocks, groin and legs all experience a kinda tightness irratation, not itchyness and some burning. Also, I experience pain on the top of my penis that feels like someone is pushing something into it slightly. The first time this happened was 3 days after the sexual encounter This usually lasts for 5-10 days , then goes away for a week or so then comes back. As I said no blisters. Could this still be herpes?? Thanks for anyones help if they happen to figure it out...docotrs seem to say no sore , not herpes, then they give me all these creams for jock itch etc which hasn't worked, this is really starting to drive me crazy, its hard to work when the irration really sets in...again thanks in advance for any responses

Hey worried guy... although no blisters means they can't do a definate test, but have you had a blood test to check for anti-bodies? The tests aren't 100% accurate, but it's a step in ruling out HSV, so at least you and your docs can focus on it may be.

If I had a penis, I may have more insight, however I'm not blessed in that capacity :wink: Hopefully one of the boys will be through soon...

good luck.

Oh, for CERTAIN you would! :p

Worried Dude,

In the abscence of blisters, I would NOT be concerned about herpes. AT all..

BUT if these symptoms are not just 'in your head' and they do coincide with a sexual encounter...

FOR SURE go to a doctor... There are 'other' std's out there... You might have picked up one of those...

8 months later

Dude... 8 months later? Get thee to le Dr.!!!! :wink:

      Hi "Jeremy"..... I agree, the topic of your HSV status does not need to be something you disclose too soon in a developing relationship..... get to know each other first....see how it's going and as it progresses, then the HSV issue will naturally need to be revealed.... it's my personal opinion though that before there is any sexual encounter you ought to disclose your HSV status.... I know some will disagree with me on this but, I think it is morally wrong not to disclose first.  This can be a make/break situation for most people but, again, I feel it is simply wrong not to give the other person the whole story since your decision not to disclose could put their health at risk.... that is simply not an option in my opinion.  Looking back to my "pre-HSV" life I most certainly would want my partner to disclose their HSV+ status before intimacy so that I could make my decision as to whether I want to take that risk or not....

      Thanks, CHT. I appreciate the feedback. The whole trauma of going through this has led me to figure out a lot about myself and my attachment wounds, so I'm taking courses to come out of this better. This girl really was my dream woman in so many ways, it's been the hardest heartbreak to deal with ever. I'm truly in a lot of pain, but using the pain as fuel to launch that new business and work with coaches. I also opened up to my family about HSV, so my parents and sister know now, and they were very loving and accepting of it. Since opening up about it, I feel way better around this thing. After opening up, I also found out that some mutual friends in our family have discordant couples who are married with children, so HSV hasn't stopped them from living a loving life. The thing is... all of these couples I mention did not disclose until 6-8 months into the relationship. So now I'm thinking it might be better not to disclose until I know things are very serious. I'll of course stay on the medication and use protection, but maybe this is a better route than disclosing upfront and scaring women off.

      Hey @Lcj987 and welcome to the website. You can be sure that isn't HSV-2, looks nothing like it. It is much more likely to be folliculitis or inflamed fordyce spots.

      Hey @JackThrowAway herpes causes an outbreak where it enters the body first and maybe a progressive spread. If it doesn't cause an outbreak at the entry site then it won't cause one elsewhere, it also won't 'jump' upon infection - it would be more likely that the lesions are continuous from the penis to the anus. Nevertheless, testing trumps symptoms or any interpretation of symptoms. The correct conclusive result arises when: you have a positive swab; or An IgG HSV-2 level over 3.5 (Herpeselect test).

      Slept with someone unprotected, roughly 2 weeks ago now. I felt generally unwell the couple of days after but I’d been drinking the whole weekend and didn’t have much sleep either of the days of that weekend so put it down to that. 6 days after I noticed these spots appear on the shaft of my penis. Along with symptoms of discomfort in my shaft in the couple of days prior to them appearing. No pain when urinating at all that I have noticed. They don’t hurt, itch or tingle and they don’t have fluid in from what I can see or feel if I squeeze them and have never burst? I went to a sexual health clinic to get checked up, they took bloods to do a full test and looked at the spots but said they saw nothing that concerned them but I’m not sure about that, any advice? The smaller spots under the shaft are just follicles I had diagnosed years ago and non-sti related.
