Im a female and I have 2 concerns. #1 Im aware I have hsv-1oral herpes and I think I may have hsv-1 genital herpes. Symptoms- vaginal and anal itching, a cut near my anus and the inside of my anus looks red and may have very tiny bumps but it is very hard to tell, frequent urination, raised pores in vagina, irritation inside vagina slight pain in (i believe urinary tract) i feel the pain more when im at the peek of my orgasim, sometimes back pain, stinging sensation like something is going to grow but it doesnt, intense burning vaginal sensation on the left side which after taking a video footage i notice what looks to be a big hard white thing that may have been a cyst (i have had a cyst in me and on my left vagina lip b4) the only thing i used that helps with these symptoms is cranberry pills.does this sound like herpes or some other infection?
#2 I had unprotected sex almost 2wks ago. I think he ejaculated inside me. After going to the bathroom i pulled out 2 big sticky jelly looking globs and an hr later i had a very strong urine smelling discharge that wet my panties and left brownish streaks. The smell lasted all day. Since then my urine and down there has a weird strong odor that smells similar to like burned rubber or something. Did he ejaculate in me and what can cause this smell? Hw can i get rid of it?
you need to be seen and get a full exam and testing done. since you had unprotected sex, you need to also get full std testing at the proper times. you can get tested for gonorrhea, chlamydia and trich after 1 week post encounter. syphilis after 6 weeks. herpes, hiv and hepatitis after 3 months.
You can actually get hsv1 genitally when you have it orally likewise when hsv2 is concerned. If your partner has hsv1 oral and gives you oral you can catch hsv1 genitally. I dont have hsv2 thats the main test they keep doing smh. I feel like doctors arent listening and dismissing whatthey arent completely familiar with. I understand a lot about it but some things just dont make sense. Ill do just as you suggested and get tested with a different doc this time.
having hsv1 orally gives you significant protection against contracting hsv1 genitally later on. it's not 100% but it's up there. Your symptoms don't sound herpes related and not likely if they were that they would be due to hsv1 due to the pattern of symptoms you have described.
be seen and get tested for yeast and bacterial infections vaginally as well as follow up with proper testing at the proper times from your recent unprotected encounter.
I have hsv 1 orally which i have had since a small child. Last week i was diagnosed with hsv 1 genitally too. Is this rare? I am just the unlucky one? What are the risks of me transmitting this genitally to my uninfected new partner?
I recently contracted --anal-- HSV1 from my partner even though that is an exit only! HSV1 is a tricky virus that usually loves to linger and play near your mouth but may affect your genitalia (also). I have spent hours upon hours researching on how NOT to get it once I realized that my partner had sores on his tongue and mouth. But to my surprise, I was transmitted the virus. ------ And here's the kicker. We haven't been sexually active for two week thus telling me I received it through viral shedding (In which he didn't tell me he had lesions) OR through his saliva even though he may have had no signs.
Please be careful and make your partner aware. This is a serious topic but a topic that should be discussed. It's a virus for life (hopefully not in the near future) that needs to be maintained.
So always wash your hands, make sure you stay fit, eat healthy as a strong immune system is your best friend. In regards to not spreading the virus even when lesions aren't present and to ward off and lessen the occurrence of outbreaks.
