Hi Terri: I am a male in my 20s. I have had 2 indeterminate western blots, a couple years apart, both ordered through you. You may recall my case: when they read the most recent blot (last March) they originally called it positive, but you asked them to compare the two blots, and upon doing so they called it indeterminate again. Thus I was advised to consider the two indeterminates negative.
I recently have noticed an odd symptom however, and wanted to get your take. Every now and then I get a very dull sensation, or slight pain in the tip of my urethra/ penis. It usually lasts a week or so. It is at times so mild that I wonder if it is all in my head, but at other times substantial enough that I have been driven to take Advil for it.
I have had this happen three times since this past September, and have had it in the past as well.
The interesting thing is that the last few times I have had this sensation was after having a sexual experience. The last few times I had this the symptom started a few days after receiving a hand- job and/or oral sex. I did not have intercourse during any of these past few experiences.
I am wondering if you think this symptom, is a symptom of herpes and/or other potential causes.

I absolutely do not think that this is a symptom of herpes – no way at all. You should believe that you are uninfected with herpes given two indeterminates and no intercourse.

Please see above for my testing history. I just noticed about 6 teeny tiny dark dry scabs on the tip of my penis. They look like someone took a pen and just placed the point there 6 times.
It’s very strange, the only thing I can think is that I was at the beach this weekend and maybe sand caused it? Does this sound like herpes to you?

Please disregard actually, I think I am using this as a crutch for my anxiety,and, if you agree, I need to trust the two indeterminates.

I agree that you should believe the blot interpretation. Not sure what the little dots would be but I very rarely see herpes lesions on the head of the penis to the exclusion of lesions in other parts of the penis.
