My current sexual partner was unaware that he had genital herpes after a date-rape instance a few weeks prior to our first sexual encounter. He was tested negative for syphilis, gonorrhea and HIV. However he did test positive for genital herpes.
Approximately 3 days after our first unprotected intercourse (this was before he was tested), I started to feel like I had the flu; pain in my lower back, shivering, muscle/joint soreness all of which I know can be symptoms of genital herpes. However 6 days after our entail encounter I started to experience a white discharge from my urethra.
Can discharge be associated with herpes without any visible sores?
definitely follow up on the discharge you have. if you've never been tested for herpes, be sure to get a type specific herpes igg blood test to know your own status so that the two of you can make educated decisions together about precautions.
did your partner just have a + hsv2 igg blood test result or obvious lesions he had cultured to confirm herpes?
