First, let me say that I think this is a great thing that you are doing here. It's not easy to get infor on STD's without being judged. Kudos.
As for me, here is my story. I am a 34 yr. old male who was married up until about 6 months ago. I have never strayed, or had a "one-nighter". Well, about 8 weeks ago that changed. Some freinds took me out to celebrate my "freedom" and I had a unprotected one-nighter with a woman I didn't know. She performed oral, and we also had vaginal intercourse.
About 2 weeks later, I went to my local clinic and was tested for all of the bacterial infections and all came back negative. About 2 weeks after that, I was tested for HIV. I was also negative with that.
I have had some symptoms that don't really point to anything, but they showed up almost immediately after.
First, I must say that there hasn't been any blisters or oozing, but my penis occasionally feels irritated. It sometimes feels as if it is mildly sunburnt or spent too much time masturbating (which I have not). Other times I have some mild itching as well. Another thing which may have nothing to do with anything is that the skin just below the rim of my penis seems to have a glossy shine to it. Also, for about a month or so, I have had some lower left abdominal "cramping" it doesn't bother me when sitting or standing, but in the evening when laying on my side, it can be mildly uncomfortable.
Is this herpes? My clinic doesn't test blood for it. Is 8 weeks too early to test? Is herpes as easy to catch as I have heard?
