I had one sexual encounter last month. I rubbed my penis (Urethral Part) on her back without condom on my penis. Prior to penetration (but my penis did touch on her private part), i had ejaculated with condom on my penis. After that encounter, I was diagnosed with NGU (as I was having tingling and itchness on my penis tip but no discharge and dysuria) and took 2 weeks antibiotic to clear it up.
Now I m scare of herpes and HIV that I may be contracted during that encounter as I keep on having symptoms (such as numbness in both my hand and feet, dizziness, inflame tonsil, muscle weakness and my penis tip still very sensitive).
I would like to know my risk of contracting herpes & HIV and the aforesaid symptoms do they sound like HIV/Herpes?
No urine test was done. The doctor only did physical examination n said to me is ngu. After taking 2 weeks antibiotics I did feel improvement / better andthe symptoms gone.
Today I notice a single red bump inside my urethra and it makes my penis feels uncomfortable in particular after urination. I m scare this is herpes urethritis. Will have appointment with dr tomorrow as to find out what is it?
I m Asian. If is hsv 1 orally is still acceptable but if is genitally it could be a disaster and I m devastated. Can I determine the type (oral or genital ) of hsv 1? Is it possible?
Doctor had checked the bump inside my urethra and found that it is a blood vessel. I still doubt on it. Life is going tough now for me. Grace, do u think the negative result of hsv 2 could be a false negative as it was tested too soon, do u agree?
Thanks for your comments, Grace. I know you wanna calm me down by saying no risk for this encounter. This is the only sexual encounter that I had with woman other than my wife. I m not sexually active either. I m worry I may contract herpes from this silly encounter and pass it to my wife.
I m still having the symptoms: swollen tonsil for about 2 weeks, dizziness, and numbness in hand and feet constantly all the day. This really worry me, Grace.
Besides herpes test, I was also tested negative for HIV, syphilis, hepatitis B and the tests were done on post 5 weeks of the encounter. What else the test I should repeat besides herpes? Any additional test that I should include?
Just got the test for HIV, syphilis, hepatitis B, herpes 1&2, chlamydia.
The previous symptoms still persist: dizziness, and numbness in hand and feet constantly all the day. New symptom: feel uncomfortable/pain when contact with cold air from air-cond, night sweat & cant sleep at night. Really worry this may be HIV infection.
Grace, do i need to take antibiotic if my herpes 1 still positive?
I got my test results, all negative except HSV1 and the figure has increased to 4500. Likewise for HSV 2 from less than 100 to 169, although it is still negative but it keeps on increasing. I m worried it may turn positive at the end. Do I need to retest?
My doctor said that is a conclusive result and i have to get it treated as the value is extremely high now. But I dun remember I had cold sore in my childhood but I did have blister in my mouth and hand as well, however not sure that was herpes. Based on my test result with high value in HSV1 indicates is previous infection and not new, am i right grace?
If is new infection, it will not make sense a I dun have oral and vaginal sex (Prior to penetration I had ejaculation, but did touch her vaginal with condom). I m confused now and lose direction.
Hi..your result is very-very conclusive.you can try to open poz.com forum to see the forum there which very kind of situation people in the world story about the hiv exposure and your exposure was very-very impossible to hiv infected.
you never ,ever have to treat herpes unless you want to. it's not a health risk to not treat herpes. doesn't matter if it's oral or genital. since you know you've had hsv1 orally since you were a child, no real reason to treat it now. make sense?
I do agree with you, but my doctor insist to treat it as he said the HSV1 figure very high.
Does blister in mounth and hand is herpes? I m very worry about my HSV2, grace as the figure is in icreasing pattern. I dare not to retest as I dun think I can accept the fact if it turns positive. I have taken the antiviral for HSV1 about 8 days, if I want to retest for herpes, what the best timing? Have to wait for one month?
