COULD I HAVE HERPES!?

Hi I'm a 20 year old male, about 6 months ago I had unprotected oral and vagina sex, and about two weeks ago I started having to pee a lot! Like every 5 min! And nothing would come out when I had to return after the first go around. I have been tested for chylmadia and gonerreha, both came back negative. I was also tested for syphilis and hep. B HIV , all came back negative.  My grandpa is my family doctor and I went to him and asked him about this urge to urinate very often, he replied back saying let's check your prostate. It was tender and sore, he massaged it to extract the prostate fluid, he found white blood cells in it. He then gave me 100mg of doxycycline for 10 days, that helped with the urge to pee, but when I went pee, I had to go back every 2 min to try and pee more. So it kinda helped until I had to urinate. I've been thinking maybe my problem is that I have trich and not herpes ( maybe an std isn't causing this at all) I have been givin 2grams of an antibiotic that starts with an F ( can't remember the name) but that would kill trich if I had it. As far as my symptoms go, frequent urination ( like every 5 min) no discharge, not really any pain while I pee, not any open sores ( that I can see) I've been told they could be inside my penis. I took a herpes test and haven't received it back yet. But my question is it possible to get herpes inside me and not show any major blisters or sores, or is this trich, or even an std? All I know is my prostate has white blood cells in it, and I have to pee a ton!! Please help!    - thank you!

Hi, the reaction of herpes is sores from the virus coming to the bodies surface. If your asking do you have a herpes sore inside your urethra blocking the urine flow the answer would be no as getting them from a first time infection in that area is really not possible. It would be more at the point of contact like your penis shaft or pubic mound area. Recurrent herpes could be in your urethra but is not common and would be extremely painful esp when toxic urine comes in contact with the sore.
So the issue is blockage. Which would cause urine blockage, a herpes sore in your urethra that causes it to become swollen or the prostate that becomes inflamed causing pressurs on the urethra, it would be most likely the inflamed prostate as the urethra travels through the middle of it and any inflamation would cause it to be squezzed and block the flow.. Do let us know your test result but i would lean more toward an inflamed prostate,

Thank you for the reply! I really appreciate it. I'm trying to figure out which bacteria has gotten to my prostate/ infected it. I've heard herpes and trichomoiasis ( trich) can cause this, it's not very common for herpes I've heard. So could I have herpes inside my uretha and that's causing a block of my urine flow? If I did have herpes wouldn't the infection bring sores or blisters to the outer skin of my penis? Cause I don't see any blisters? So would I lean more towards that thric is causing this? Also my wife isn't experiencing any symptoms at all, no sores, she doesn't utinate often at all, it's just me. I'm trying to figure out if this is even an std? What other types of bacteria could make this happen? It's only annoying cause I have to urinate so much! I wake up in the morning go to the bathroom ( it's a good solid long pee) then after that is when the problem starts, literally two minutes later I have to go ( barely anything comes out) and then for the next few hours I have that feeling of going, during this time period I'm not really drinking any water either ( which I should be) but the minute I do drink water I have to go, and then takes like three hours just to get a cup of water out my system. I know I have a lot of story telling here and am not getting some solid questions, I apologize for that. Just trying to figure out if herpes is causing this, or trich, or not even an std.  A nurse told me there are other std bacteria that can cause this, not chlymaida and those other std bacteria but like smaller ones, that can be treated with antibiotics. I appreciate the help here!

Also I've been experience this now for like 3 weeks! From my prostate exam ( which was painful for me) showed white blood cells in my prostate fluid and the tenderness of it showed that it is infected, people say to doxicycline for the treatment ( I guess it takes 4 weeks to cure) I was on that stuff for 11 days now and it kind gives a little relief but not much, I still would have to go the bathroom a ton! But once I was on that, I noticed I could urinate a lot better, longer and more of it. But then after the first pee it's the back and forth game I play. So obviously that stuff was doing something for me. If it was herpes wouldn't this go away after a week or so? And then I wouldn't have this urinating problem cause it would be gone ( till it came back) I don't think I can go another week with this problem! Just trying to figure out what bacteria has caused my prostate to become inflamed and how to fix it.

Sorry for the spell errors, doing this on my phone and t-9 likes to correct things or not spell it the way I want it too.

Prostate issues are not fun at all. It could be an STD bacteria, other bacteria or just the damn thing playing up. You are young at 20 to have such issues, but I'm afraid it does happen. You describe very little that aligns with herpes, it just doesn't really do these sorts of things for most people.

The test will be definitive for you.

So I got my results back today. Positive for type 1 herpes and negative for type two, which is a huge relief!. So I'm trying to figure out if I can officially cross an std off my list, I don't think they're any stds that could show up after 6 months of unprotected sex, and all of my stds results have been negative. So what has caused my prostate to become infected? I talked to my grandpa and told him that I got hit in the junk really hard with a soccer ball at a soccer game, and that was about a month or so ago, I guess there could be a slight chance that the impact could damage the uretha and infect it which is causing me to urinate often, but how does that effect the prostate an make it infected? I don't think that could do it? The only thing that is happening is just the often urination, no pain durum it, and then after I urinate the first time I have the feeling of going again. I'm gonna try some antibiotic called sulphate ? And see if that helps my prostate or clear this problem. Not sure if you guys can think of anything. My wife isn't experiencing any symptoms at all.  A nurse told me there could be some different bacteria ( related to stds) that could cause this, but wouldn't have I experienced symptoms months back? Like what other bacteria could make this happen after 5-6 months of unprocted oral and vagina sex? I don't think there is much, nurse said something about ureiplasma or something called like that? And one other bacteria. One thing too my prostate doesn't hurt at all! I can sit down and do everything I need to without any pain in it. It's just this feeling of inside my penis, doesn't hurt, can just tell there is something going on, kinda feels like pee trying to push itself out idk how to explain it, but it's not painful. Let me know if you have any ideas on this please! I really do appreciate it. Nice to get other people's input on it.
