Hi I am a female who mutually masturbated with a male on 2 (one time then 2 days later another time) separate occasions about 12 weeks ago. When I was masturbating him the first time I felt 1 rough raised area on him on the foreskin near the head. I couldn’t see because it was dark. He masturbated me and I him. I don’t think he masturbated himself first before touching me but I’m not sure. Then the second time the same thing but this time I felt two raised rough areas on his upper foreskin area right below the head. I got freaked out and stopped. On both occasions he masturbated me first and the i him but I’m sure he touched his penis take it out and maybe to rub it a little. The rough areas I speak of felt like large pimples with a rough surface.
Am I at risk for contracting hsv this way?
A month later I got a small clear bump in the pubic area inner lip area that lasted 3 weeks and went away. I monitored it closely and there was no change at all. I just woke up one day and it was gone. I had no pain. However I did have slight tingling when pee or soap got on it one time but I had been rubbing it a lot prior to that. I went to the doctor and the nurse practitioner said she didn’t see anything she I tried showing her.
I tested at 9 and 1/2 weeks and it was negative. I’m considering re-testing next week.
I’m scared please help.

I’m trying to imagine in my head what touching a herpes lesion would feel like with my eyes closed. In the blister or ulcer stage, it would not feel rough or like pimples with a rough surface. With a scab, it might feel that way. However, what you describe sounds a bit more like it could be a genital wart.
But the blister does worry me slightly. Normally, a herpes blister would last only a few days in the labia, maybe a week, but three weeks? That’s a pretty long time for a herpes blister.
The fact that your test at 9.5 weeks is negative is reassuring indeed. A test at 16 weeks will be even more clear.
Have you considered seeing this person in daylight and looking at his penis or talking to him about your concerns?
And then finally, a think mutual masturbation is an extremely low risk experience. It sounds like his hands were mostly on you which is a good thing in terms of your concerns.
In summary, for many reasons, I don’t think this is herpes.

I asked him to show me his penis on another occasion but nothing was there. I prefer not to mention it to him. I know for a fact that I was negative for HSV 2 before this because I had gotten tested type specific testing.
The bump I’m speaking of looked more like a clear bump filled with air. It was so tiny that I could only feel it if my hands were wet and see it if I shined light on it. The Nurse in the OBGYN office couldn’t even see it, but I new it was there.
If this was herpes particularly my first out break would it happen this way? I found it on October 30 and on Nov 21 it was gone. Also the tingling I felt when I got pee on it and soap on it but it only happened once. The pee got on it at night time before bed and it tingled and the soap in the morning when I took a shower it tingled, but I had been rubbing the bump a lot prior to that because I was freaked out that I found it.

Again, I really don’t think a herpes blister 1) would not be visible and recognized when it was specifically pointed out to a clinician and 2) last 3 weeks.
Great news that are you negative at 9.5 weeks. I would say that is at least 85% or so certain to stay that way.

Thank you for your reassurance. Is there something else that could cause a clear bump? I am overweight and sweat a lot down there so I get weird bumps all the time but they are usually white from oil build up. I have had several docs look at these. However, I don’t think I’ve had a clear bump. Could it be a friction blister? I was walking a lot 2 days prior. Would a friction blister last this long? It didn’t really look like a blister but it was a bump with a clear top that was shiny. No pain and no redness. Can there be unexplained bumps down there?
Lastly, should I retest at 12 and 1/2 weeks next week? I am having a lot of anxiety about this. Then I will re-test at 16 weeks on Jan 15. Or is this too much testing?

I guess I can’t think right now of something else that that could be. I guess it could be a blister from friction?
You can retest at 12.5 week and that should be quite clear, yes. 16 weeks is the best however.

Actually I don’t know if it was exactly A blister. Is a clear bump a blister? It was a bump with a clear top but it reminded me more of some kind of inflamed gland it was shiny and clear.
I know you said a herpes blister doesn’t last 3 weeks but can a herpes bump be a bump and no change for 3 weeks?
Lastly, how accurate is a test at 12 and 1/2 weeks?

I have been getting small weird scabs on my breasts. Is there any way I can send you a photo so you can tell me if it looks like herpes or not? I got them last thurs in one area and today I say 2 different ones in a different area on the same breast. They look like little lines of scabs.

Didn’t you renew with another subscription? I think you did and you could send the pics under that subscription if you can figure out how to load the pictures. I am not much help for you in that regard.
