Customer Question
I couldn't find a herpes...
I couldn't find a herpes section but here goes my scenario , two weeks ago I received oral sex from a girl who does things for money, I had irritation on my penis from wrong soap but that never seemed to be the problem , I had a slight in comfy urinationg for a few days which now went away, I went to the clinic and they diagnosed me with bacteria in my uretha , my other symptoms were bumps to pop up on my but and three were really close together but the dr days ago before my diagnoses said it we folliculitus not at all concerned with herpes but I am, I'm having neuro symptoms in my thighs constantly and I read all over the web that NGU can be caused by an oral hsv1 infection, the my dr wouldn't test for herpes and said k don't have it because no lesions , and he says he doubts in have it anyway, but since these bumps that came about that went away in a day and other symptoms and diagnoses of NGU I pretty much know I have it, and I really wanted to try for children with my gf one day...now my dreams are crushed because of henital hsv 1, the girl didn't even have cold sores on her mouth and said she's never had one..

Sometime HSV remains asymptomatic and even don't appear whole life , but they remain in body , body secretions and can be transmitted to other healthy persons through oro-genital sex .

As she works for money and she had many encounters with so many peoples , it is highly likely that she is a source of transmission to healthy individuals as in your case .

Even when there are no lesions , secretions can transmit Virus .

You should work up for Herpes and get treatment please .

Hello. This is Dr. Love, a different expert.

There are several comments that are pertinent in this situation.

Yes, it is possible that HSV1 can cause an infection of the urethra, but it is very uncommon and there are many other germs that are more common to cause NGU.

Bumps that arise on the butt and resolve within a day is very atypical for an HSV1 infection.

However, even in the worst case scenario that you are one of the very uncommon men that develop a genital HSV1 infection, it is definitely not something that should be considered to crush your dreams. HSV1 does not like growing on the genitals, so when a genital HSV1 infection happens, it is much milder than a genital HSV2 infection. The vast majority of people with genital HSV1 infections get only one or two episodes and not the multiple recurrent episodes that is seen with genital HSV2 infections (or oral HSV1 infections). There is no problem with you and your girlfriend trying to get pregnant once the two of you are ready to do so.

If there are any additional questions, please let me know.

how do I continue life from here? My dr said he doesn't even think I should take the blood test, but I'm going to when some time goes by....I'm in a state of panic and shock and they prescribed me antibiotic am Xanax 1mg, I can't believe I have NGU most likely from herpes..... He said without an outbreak of blisters on my penis I shouldn't be too worried ....idk what to do anymorr
HIV and AIDS Expert: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 1 year ago

If you have never had a blood test for HSV1, the first step would actually be to have a blood test now. Between one-third and one-half of people in the US have antibodies for HSV1 by age 21. And about half of these people do not remember ever having had cold sores, most likely because they were infected before they can remember, although they may have also simply had a mild infection.

If you wait and only check a blood test in three months and it is positive, it would be impossible to know whether you are one of these people that are already positive or if the test became positive because of this encounter. By checking a blood test now, you will know if you were infected when younger. And if the current test is negative and the repeat test is positive in three months, then that would indicate that the infection happened currently.

I would also note that you should get tested for HSV1 and HSV2. Just as you can get genital HSV1, it is also possible that she had contracted oral HSV2. Whenever we do testing for HSV, we typically test for both types.

So, get a current test for baseline, and then if it is negative, repeat the test in 3 months.

do you think I have herpes form the encounter And the NGU is from it
HIV and AIDS Expert: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 1 year ago

I do not think that the herpes caused the bumps. I think it very unlikely that the NGU is from herpes.

Ask Your Own HIV and AIDS Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Can you please explain why, honestly why ? Then I can rate and tip
HIV and AIDS Expert: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 1 year ago

Primarily for the reasons that I noted above - it is very uncommon for HSV1 to cause an infection of the urethra and there are other germs that are more common as a cause for NGU.

While I can say that it is very uncommon, I cannot say that it never occurs, but the likelihood is certainly at a level that I can accurately say that it is very unlikely that the NGU is from herpes.

Ok what about the random pimples on butt and thighs that go away in a day and jumping nerves in thighs ? I'm going to rate right now
HIV and AIDS Expert: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 1 year ago

As I said above, bumps on the butt that resolve in a day is atypical for herpes.

The nerve symptoms are non-specific, in that they can occur in a variety of infections, including spreading of NGU to the deeper urethra or prostate.

HIV and AIDS Expert: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 1 year ago

I am sorry for the delay, but I had to step away from the computer.

We are seeing increasing numbers of cases of genital infections due to HSV1 transmitted via oral sex, but the typical infection involves visible sores on the external skin, not infections of the urethra.

HIV and AIDS Expert: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 1 year ago

This is one of the reasons that I say that it is unlikely that this is a genital infection from HSV1.

A genital infection from HSV1 would clearly not be causing jumping in your face as soon as you wake up.

My dr and dr Terri Warren said although this can be asymptatic, no sores on penis 2-10 days after is a good sign? Also if the NGU was from hsv it would have been very painful,
HIV and AIDS Expert: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 1 year ago

Yes, it is a good sign. It usually is very painful, but the severity of pain can be variable, so does not change that it is very unlikely to be from HSV1.

Ok well before I rate, I assume you've treated men with henital herpes before , how does it present ? I mean , I had broken skin on my penis and apparently I didn't get it there because no lesions or even pain on there, how the heck would it just go in the urethra and not in the exposed skin? I just want some understanding because I know you have other business to attend to
HIV and AIDS Expert: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 1 year ago

I have treated many men with genital herpes. It presents most often with sores on the head or shaft of the penis or on the skin around the base of the penis. It is spread by skin to skin contact, and the external skin is the primary skin that is contacted. And during oral sex, there is relatively less contact with the skin around the base of the penis. It can only get into the urethra if there is unusual pressure to expose the urethra. It is because there is not the same exposure of the urethra as the external skin that the urethra is involved far less often than the external skin.

Ok lastly what do you advise I do from here , what would YOU do,
HIV and AIDS Expert: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 1 year ago

It depends upon what you mean. If you mean what would I do if it were me having these symptoms, I would not be as anxious as you, so I would not do any testing for HSV1. However, if you mean what would I do if you were my patient and you are as anxious about this as you obviously are, then I would do the blood testing that I described above. If you insisted that I do a swab, then I would also do that, but the swab is most accurate on the first day of symptoms and becomes less accurate each day, so is less accurate at this point in time and a negative swab does not rule out HSV disease.

The usual sore of herpes may start as a bump or pimple, but it then typically progresses quickly to a blister, then an ulcer, which then crusts over and heals over a week to 10 days. it does not sound like this lesion that you just now remembered is following this sequence.

Test what do U think the outcome will be
HIV and AIDS Expert: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 1 year ago

It is possible that this was a cold sore, although cold sores are far more common in the mouth or lips. On the other hand, there are many other conditions that can cause a red raw sore in the corner of the nose.

Even without any oral symptoms, though, you may have already been infected with HSV1. As I told you above, between one-third to one-half of people have developed antibodies by age 21, and about half of these people do not recall ever having had symptoms. That is why I said that blood testing should involve a blood test now, rather than simply waiting for a few months to perform a blood test.

Since it is very uncommon that this could be an HSV1 infection, it would be equally very uncommon that it could be passed to your girlfriend. And, of course, if she is one of the one-third to one-half that already has antibodies, then she is immune.

That is a decision that only you and your girlfriend can make. Most people do not refrain from sex when they have an encounter with a different sexual partner, even if a sex worker. But only you and your girlfriend can decide whether you want to do so in the setting of a very uncommon chance of infection.

He must be referring to relative risk, not absolute risk. There are a multitude of references that document that shedding without symptoms occurs with both oral and genital herpes (also called aymptomatic shedding). However, it happens infrequently, so the relative risk is low, and that contributes to me saying that the likelihood of infection in this situation is very uncommon.

This is what i had swabbed last night ...I'm so scared
HIV and AIDS Expert: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 1 year ago

There is no reason to be scared. It does not look worrisome on the picture, but it is more significant that it started as a dry patch, which is not typical for herpes, and the doctor last night was able to perform a full exam and said that he was not concerned about the sore. A personal examination is always more accurate than review of a picture.
