Just an update – went to an STD clinic and the NP said he wasn’t going to swab me based on the pin size red dot. He said because I haven’t been sexually active 2 months, used a condom and tested negative on an IGG, that there was no need to swab me. He feels I’m negative and it won’t change. Kinda rude to be honest.
I made an appt with my OBGYN for Thursday morning because that’s all I could get but I am afraid 5-6 days is too late for a swab.
I am getting another IGG test tomorrow through Quest.
It seems to reopen everytime I pass a bowel. It seems to heal and close with Aquaphor and then I go reopen it by looking. I read on here that some people have had the same kinda cut in their perineum that ended up being GHSV2 positive.
Does this sound like GHSV2? My ex told me he’s not getting retested since we used a condom and I need to “move on.”
That’s really good to know, thanks, Terri.
One additional question – I noticed a small little cut in the perineum region again on Friday, sort of like a red dot that gets better with Aquaphor, I feel it the most passing stools, and I posted about it before in my previous posts. I have had a fissure for years but it’s on the opposite side in the rectum. This little cut happens now and then from excessive stool passing or going often, etc. I think even wiping. But.. its just been happening more often lately and is starting to worry me.
1. Does this sound like an OB at all?
2. Would they be occurring this frequently either?
3. Should I get it swabbed? It’s pretty small but I definitely see it in a compact mirror if I angle myself properly
Hello, I am just following up on this to confirm my test is negative. Should I retest at a later date at all? The test was taken 5 weeks out since the condom protected encounter.
Also just want to note that I asked my OBGYN about these cuts referenced above before on the phone and she’s still convinced it’s not HSV2, due to “location,” how they healed, them occurring weeks after the condom protected sex and no present lesions or sores that ever occurred. She said the condom protected his shaft so even if he lied about cuts, spreading to me is so low risk. She said first time OBs are very painful and usually don’t present in a cut/ are never subtle. Again, she believes I’m overdoing my hysteria and suspects my IGG will be negative. What do you think?
Yeah, it’s not been easy. I can confirm that his cheating did include condoms, and one time without. I’ve spoken to one of the women.
I forgot to mention, i did have a cut on my outer thigh near my rectum, i don’t know if it was due to shaving, it never turned into a sore and resolved with aquaphor. I also had a little cut above my rectum that would hurt when passing stools that also resolved with aquaphor and hot baths. I’ve gotten that area swabbed before in april because I initially freaked out and it was negative and my OBGYN just said it was a fissure or cut from wiping.
Do either of these occurrences sound herpetic? They happened about post encounter from 6/28. Is herpes painful? Does it come in the forms of cuts? Would I know if I had an outbreak or can they be subtle? I’m stressed all the time and under a lot of anxiety.
If I test negative – should I re-test or trust the result and move on?
He told me he couldn’t ejaculate with it on, so he took it off. That was a whole other discussion and I was not happy about it.
I assume he has had sex with people since he was last tested on 5/26 and between us having condom protected sex on 6/28 – but I believe it has been protected because the chlamydia infection really shook us both up. He says he hasn’t had sex at all, but I don’t believe it. He also said he wouldn’t lie about the cut and have sex with me if he thought it was something serious. He said he cut himself with an electric razor and sent me a picture of it on 6/24, I looked at the photo again just now and it didn’t look like a sore. It was at the top of his shaft and three little bloody dots. When we had sex on 6/28, I didn’t see anything on him that stood out.
My OBGYN and he thinks I’m being paranoid about the HSV2 since I’ve never had an outbreak. But if the chance is 4% even with a condom, should I still be worried? I’m testing in an hour because my mind has been going crazy.
