I had protected (received) oral sex encounter about 7 weeks ago. I was tested at 10 days and 4 weeks after this encounter for the following tests: ( all results were negative). I am planning to take a test for all the stds listed below in 1 week ( approx 8 weeks after exposure). I noticed a straight line of small bumps on the head (rim) of my penis. I have been tested for herpes at 4 weeks and negative for 1 and 2. There is no pain. What are your thoughts?
Hepatitis B Surface Antigen with Confirmation by Neutralization
HIV-1 Antibody Screen With Reflex to Western Blot Confirmation
Syphilis - RPR (Diagnosis) with Reflex to Titer and Confirmatory Testing
Herpes Simplex Virus 1 and 2 IgG, Type Specific Antibody (HerpeSelect®)
Hepatitis C Antibody
Chlamydia trachomatis by Amplified Detection (APTIMA®)
Neisseria gonorrhoeae by Amplified Detection (APTIMA®)
Believe the tests. You are unlikely to have the diseases you were tested for, in part because your exposure was very low risk and in part because the tests are negative. Tests for syphilis, herpes, HIV and hepatitis (B&C) may take more than 10 days to be positive but your risk is so low that I am sure you do not have these diseases. Realizing that you will probably get tested anyway, when you have negative test results at 8 weeks you can be sure you do not.
Those little bumps have probably always been there and are called "pearly penile papules". All men have them although they vary in size from person to person. They are not herpes. EWH
