What are the chances of this being herpes
OK, so on 1/29/13 had protected sex with a strange girl, she ended up bleeding and freaked out, from what i assume was embarrassment but never talked to her again so i dont know. didnt think anything of it.


fast forward to 2/9, i cut my finger pretty bad and was prescribed clindamycin and i took that for about 5 days (maybe 4 days)

fast forward to 2/11 or 2/12 i had an itchy glans, i take a bath and notice my glans had white stuff on it, i cleaned it off and it all came off easily.  (i am uncircumcised)

on 2/13 or 2/14 my glans started to hurt and i notticed my meatus was inflamed and had a burning sensation throughout my groin area... note no blisters or sores or a rash even

saw doctor on 2/18 and he felt it was not an infection of any sort and most likely yeast, and/or bad hygiene and prescribes clotrimazole, and said the burning was probably related.

notticed a clear discharge from penis, very small ammounts maybe its precum since i get it after an errection or so i think.

kept using clotrimazole  and my burning sensation went away but i ran out of clotrimazole  around 3/11

the burning in the groin and thigh area came back around 3/13 - 3/14 and my testicles ache and i have a bit of a muscle ache in my thigh.  also

also around 3/13 i nottice the clear discharge does not directly coralate with erections but it is really small amounts and is viscous like mucus but clear.


so its 3/18 and not sure what is going on down there.  it burns and there is a slight muscle ache in the inner thigh
its tolerable but annoying

also it does not burn when i pee but my meatus feels like its being pinched and slightly itches. irritated is the best way to describe it.  

long winded story but now my question... does this sound like it could be herpes?

no, this doesn't sound at all like herpes going on.

have you had any urine testing done for std's?  how about a prostate exam?

i didnt think so, but i kept reading mixed information on the internet.
i will go get tested for STD's either way and i plan on seeing my regular doctor this week for prostatisis

i have an additional followup, this morning i notticed tiny white bumps on the bottom side of my foreskin, not facing my glans but facing externally.
they are tiny, and in a cluster and they do not hurt nor do they appear to be puss filled, but i am still concerned it may be herpes, again, my assumption is no since they dont look like or feel like what i've read but im still freaking out


an an additional question, can herpes cause vaginal bleeding like a person is on her period?

sounds more like pearly papules you are noticing or even just irritation of the skin.  

no, herpes wouldn't cause bleeding during sex.

protected sex means it's not likely this is a chlamydia issue.

what testing are they doing?

no such thing as a low grade chlamydia infection - you either have it or you don't.

you were treated though right?
