Herpes symptoms

Hi Grace ,

I had unprotected oral sex with some one .Later I came to know that she was positive for HSV1 and HSV2 .
After 4 days I got burning sensation when urinating and my penis skin got dry and I had burning sensation on my hands and legs.
We did urine culture and it came out with out any bacteria presence .I had anti biotics and burning feeling when urinating reduced . Doctor after examining penis told that there is no symptoms of herpes as there was no sores .
But there was a small pimple .

After 45 days I tested for HSV which was not type specific .
igg was 0.25 and igm was 0.65 .

Its been 73 days .I have given for testing and I am waiting for the result .Do my symptoms look like herpes .

India has one of th highest incidence of HSV1 in the world! Probably around 90%, especially for women. Hence most every future partner will have HSV1.

Your symptoms are little more than stress and maybe a fungal or urinary infection.

Hi ,

I had unprotected oral sex for around 10 minutes .I got an irritation on my penis immediately after that .After 4-5 days my penis head was completely dry and red and was painful and got pain when urinating .I had severe burning feeling on my hands and legs.When we did first urine test it came out negative.
After some days when i did a urine test it was showing the presence of E.coli .

I tested for all STDs and all came out negtive .
Tested HIV rapid on 60 th day and came out negative .

Now its been 78 days and I am not able to sleep at nights . If I drink i will sleep for max 4 hrs .
I have a pain on my penis when I wear tight dress .and also at nights .
I have given for igg and igm test and is waiting for the result .

Your partner most probably does not have HSV2. That is a low positive, exceptionally low.

These symptoms do not appear to be related to herpes. I am very confident your testing will not reveal a positive.

Hi Fleetwood  ,

Got the results
igg hsv1 - 0.26
igg hsv2 - 0.50 .

will the result change after some months .Doctor told I should check after 6 months and one year .

Testing on 73 days is confirmatory ?or is it a very good sign that I dont have
this bad disease .

Over 10 weeks, yes that is very accurate. I'd be more than happy with that. If you can't believe this, then have a final test at 16 weeks.

Hi Fleetwood ,

I got the result just now in my hand .

igg hsv1 - 0.02
igg hsv2 - 0.05.

igm hsv2 = 0.05
igm hsv1 = 0.04


will the result change after some months .Doctor told I should check after 6 months and one year .

No such thing as too low. Every test has a minimum value that varies between tests. Most probably all your test results are at the minimum meaning no antibodies at all.
This is conclusive in my view.

Now the problem I have is my penis skin is still dry and a bit red .
It has reduced in past two months .But still I have the problem .I get some irritation sometimes and when I urinate that time urine is yellow . I am using moisturising cream as dermatologist said the skin has to recover by it own .
What can I do to solve this

Hi ,

I would like to have ur inputs .

As far as  understood from internet HSV1 is highly contagious and she should be negative for HSV2 as her hsv2 count is too low .

What are the chances of getting the HSV1 on genetals  from a single exposure of oral sex for 10 mins .

My doctor told I am in extreme stress and if it was herpes ,I should have got the first outbreak by now .

I have is my penis skin is still dry and a bit red .
It has reduced in past two months .But still I have the problem .I get some irritation sometimes and when I urinate that time urine is yellow . I am using moisturising cream as dermatologist said the skin has to recover by it own .

Yesterday after my results on 75 days ,I slept well for atleast 10 hrs(I didnt sleep for more than 3 hrs in past 75 days )

When I think abt herpes ,I have problems and when I dont think much I am kind of normal .

I am not exposed to HSV1 or HSV2 before . But this girl is tested positive for HSV1 .

Most girls test positive for HSV1, your mother probably does. You've been exposed all your life.

Your testing and lack of any real symptoms means you are clear.

You are also being too dramatic about HSV, a very insignificant virus that is extremely common.
Avatar universal

I am from India and I font think it is extremely common as explained in internet .

I am praying to god not to curse for this single mistake .
I know I will have to live with hsv1 on my genitals if I test positive .
But as any one else ,I want to live a life with out any STD .
It gave me a great relief after getting the result and when you said there is no symptoms of HSV .

I know I am obsessed but a clear answer will make me happy . I have a red eye especially in the morning which make me paranoid .
