I am going through a depressing time just like some people I have read up here going through something similar.
I am a 37 year old man and getting confusing symptoms for the past 18 days that I fear it might be herpes. I need people with experience to give me honest opinions what this might be.
I went on a business trip and met up with a lady at an event, I don't know her sexual history but she had no sores or whatsoever and looked real healthy. We both had unprotected oral sex but no penetration and I didn't feel any symptoms or anything days afterwards.
Another week later we met again and this time we had proper penetration sex but somehow the condom I was using broke through the act and I noticed after ejaculating.
2 days later I had this weird tingling sensation running from the tip of my penis all the way through the urethra and sometimes I think I feel it run to my anal area. There was no discharge or itch but it was such an uncomfortable feeling. This tingling and burning sensation in my urethra has continued for the past 18 days but I haven't seen any obvious rash, blisters or sores. I have to take a light to look at the sides of my penis to see really tiny hair like bumps.
I had some legs muscle cramp and back ache on day 3 but I had worked out vigorously in the gym class for 3 days straight, so I guess that might be the reason.
I haven't felt any fever or illness and neither have I felt any serious itch anywhere else, except an occasional mild itch at my anal and I have looked with a mirror but there is no rash or sore there.
For some days I get really cold feet at night and I noticed a slight oral thrush at the back of my mouth.
I really don't know what is going on, I am engaged to this wonderful woman I want to marry and I would never put her at risk over this stupid mistake, I have every intention to end the relationship if this is herpes because I rather die than ruin her future.
Can someone please shed some light on what this might be, I have read so many things online and I am so confused, could this be even yeast infection or diabetes?
I am waiting for 6 weeks to do some full tests.
