Hi Terri, if my math serves me correctly this should be my last available reply on this topic.
Thank you for relieving my anxiety on this topic.
Do you think it’s safe for me to close this chapter and move on from this brief encounter (gave oral to him for a short while, and was also masturbated by him briefly)? In terms of herpes-related concerns of course.
I do struggle with anxiety and tend to over-focus and over-analyse situations…
I visited a GP here in the UK. He did not do a visual examination but told me that it was a very mild UTI – something like the hands and fingers could have also introduced bacteria. He also told me that it probably already cleared itself out, since I only experienced the symptoms very briefly.
The time I experienced those UTI symptoms was I think my first pee of the day, after I had woken up late, and then subsequently I never had discomfort again for the rest of the day and also I’ve been fine ever since.
What do you think?
Hi Terri, sorry to bother you again. 🙁
Today I noticed some slight burning and discomfort while urinating, and I think it’s a mild UTI. My pee was also pretty yellow/dark. I wouldn’t say it’s too painful or anything, but definitely uncomfortable. Do you think this is related to the encounter from a few days ago?
I counted the hours since the encounter, and it’s definitely been over 72 hours (3 days), would a UTI show up this late after sexual activities?
Part of me wonders if it could be herpes related, since I guess it doesn’t make sense to me that a UTI would show up this late (correct me if I’m wrong).
I did masturbate yesterday night though, so could it also be that?
Thank you Terri.
Hi Terri, thank you so much.
I did ask him a while after the encounter if he had anything, and he told me that he had nothing, and while I really doubt that he would knowingly lie to me, I’ve kind of learned that most people don’t even know what they have/don’t have. I do kind of feel bad for doubting him like that, but I guess that’s what persistent anxiety does to you… 🙁
From my brief encounter with him, such as briefly giving him oral, grinding (with my underwear on) and being fingered briefly – do you believe that herpes is something I should realistically be concerned about?
Thank you for your help again.
Some more follow ups….. in the dim light it was quite hard to tell what colour the patch of skin was, maybe a darker red/pink or just slightly darkened skin in general? I don’t think it really looked “inflamed” or “angry” though, if that helps. It was also quite squarely on his inner thigh if I remember correctly, and not in the crease of the thigh where it meets the groin area, if you get what I mean.
Regarding the couple of tiny bubble looking things I could sort of spot on the left side of the patch of skin, I can’t tell if they’re actually bubbles since it was sort of dark in the room, but if they were, they didn’t really appear like they were about to burst. And in general, the patch of skin looked uneven/bumpy.
It felt uncomfortable to ask him for more info on it, since I could tell he was getting quite sensitive. He’s self-confessed to be promiscuous, although I can’t tell to what degree since that’s basically all I know. I guess I’m a little worried since he seems nonchalant about it and I’m not sure how safe he normally is with his encounters.
I guess it feels regretful because he’s someone I briefly knew from high school back then and I wish I didn’t have to have anxiety over this…
Any reassurance would be greatly appreciated, thank you Terri.
