Also, I gave the guy oral sex as well and do not seem to have had any kind of breakout around the mouth. Assuming that this is herpes and that I caught it from him, would I also have had some kind of breakout around the mouth if he did in fact have herpes?
Hi, the risk for contracting genital herpes, using a condom where he did not have any genital sores at the time would be close to zero. Do your symtpoms appear herpes connected? No they do not. There are more detailed swab tests you can have performed like the PCR which is DAN based. Also having a herpes select type specific igG blood test for herpes at the 8 week mark would be a good indicator if you have contarcted herpes. Also with the oral, if he did not have any lip sores at the time, the risk again would be close to ero.
I'm also noticing lots of white discharge, however yeast infection pills don't seem to clear it up. What else could this be? I know they say herpes mimics a yeast infection.
Just an update. I got my test results back today (I was tested at 10 weeks) and the results are as follows:
Herpes Type 1 IGG - 0.57
Herpes Type 2 IGG - 0.10
Doctors say I am negative for all other possible STDs as well. A little relieved but still unsure of what is causing this persistent itching and discharge. Possibly the fact that I've taken 3 different courses of antibiotics in the past two months? I'm not sure, but I'm going to stop worrying and trust the results unless more symptoms appear.
I am so happy about your negative test as I also have a similiar experience that I am going through. Even thought I used condoms for vaginal-penile sex and had unprotected oral, a guy on this site said BV does not cause the level of irritation I had,
The doctor did confirm BV and now I am scared crapless. I will have to test again and hoping for a negative result.
You sound exactly like me! I used condoms for sex and had unprotected oral and was also diagnosed with BV. Herpes wasn't a thought of mine until the doctor said herpes could cause similar symptoms and my BV wasn't going away. I did not have any lesions or abnormal pap smears either and are still unsure of what is causing the itching, but I feel a lot better now knowing the chances of it being herpes is low. I hope your test results are also negative. Good luck!
