Are there any chances of getting herpes if had intercourse and unprotected sex ?

Hello, I had sexual intercourse with someone back in Sep 2010 and we used protection. My partner took the condom off while we were having sex and I never noticed. He says he didnt take it off because it was found inside of me after intercourse... how else could it get up there so I assume he took it off. I have been knowing this man for a while and this was our first time we had sex. He wanted to cut all of the lights off and have intercourse in complete darkness I kind of felt like that wasnt right but I didnt think to much of it because so people are just weird like that, everyone is different so I just went along with it. I never had a chance to examine him until after he had ejaculated inside of me and thats when I noticed a scar on his penis. When I asked about it he said, it got caught in his zipper when he was younger . I have been doing online research about the herpes virus ever since. I havent felt the same since we had intercourse and I break out down there before I have a menstrual cycle every month. I am scared to go to a doctor because if I do have something I Swear To God I Will Kill That Man and I mean that. I dont care about going to jail. I dont have any children and I want a family if I have something, then what? My life would be fxcked... So, I just dont know. Is there any advice that you could give me other than go to a doctor because thats not going to happen. I am now in a relationship with someone I would want to spend my life with but scared to have intercourse because I might have something I cant get rid of.

Dear Daliah,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.

The Sexually transmitted disease which do not have adequate cure can be transmitted by semen is HIV.

So you need to be screened for HIV.

If you are in India, you can just go to any ICTC (Integrated Counseling and Testing Centres) where the testing is done freely and confidentially.

Since till now you do not have any symptoms, I do not think you have contracted any other STDs.

I had unprotected sex about 9 days ago and I am terrified of contracting herpes I felt like i had the flu a few days ago had a fever and stomach pains, there were no symptoms down there though. Fever went away but i still have terrible stomach pains and indigestion Im stressing out way too much but when i checked down there i noticed two small red bumps on the outside of my labia, they dont hurt to the touch but they are there and have been there for about a day. They are slighly irritated. If these were herpes sores they would hurt right? Could this just be normal irritation?

Hello, my name is Zack.I am a 29 yr old gay male in san Antonio tx. I have been exposed to what I believe is herpes, but there are just some symptoms involving my fiancee that is putting a lot of things into question. I was having unprotected sex before we met. Not on a daily basis and not every partner was unprotected, though it s no relief or excuse. I myself had not noticed any symptoms except for diarrhea and a smelly discharge from my anus, which I honestly chalked up to be poor diet complications for the most part. My fiancee and I had discussed our sexual past and i wasn t completely honest with him, however he was terrified of contracting hiv and I had just had a hospital visit where they regularly test all patients with bloodwork for hiv. So with that in mind, and in my ignorance, I thought I was in the clear for any other stds. I didn t understand why they d test for hiv but nothing else. However my visit was not for anything related to an std. I had tonsilittis. When i came clean about having unprotected sex, we immediately went and got tested for hiv, and came back negative on both behalves. We were relieved and continued with our relationship even stronger and regularly had unprotected sex. A few months later we started having trust issues and he began questioning whether I have been faithful to him. I have not been sexually or even slightly physical with another person outside of a hug since we ve been together, and we ve been back and forth about this for awhile. In the midst of our arguments about whether I ve been faithful, he started breaking out in sores and lesions ranging in size and severity on his penis, and eventually on his hands and face, and one on his anus. He regularly has stomach problems, and says that his sores (and there s a lot at times) are extremely painful. These sudden symptoms have strengthened his conviction against me, and leaving me next to defenseless to justify anything. I m suffering from anxiety and depression, mostly because of this argument, and most people have told me to leave him. But I m determined to prove my innocence, and this would be a great start. He tells me that I m a carrier and that s why I don t show typical symptoms, and he s convinced that there s no way I could have contracted something before we got together, and it took (roughly) 6 months before he had started showing noticeable symptoms. I have neglected going to get tested for the sheer fact that I beleove I m positive for herpes, however I fear a free testing clinic would not be able to determine how long I ve had the virus, or provide us with enough information to even give me a chance to prove that I ve had this before him. I know I shouldnt have lied about my sexual past to him, and I am responsible for this debate entirely. Please help.

I fingered a women then masturbated with the same hand. About 3 months later started feeling some groin discomfort and have had it on and off for 7 months. I went to the doctor and he said my lymph nodes aren't swollen and strongly opposed to an hiv test. I'm still paranoid about the whole situation should I be. She was really wet when I fingered her.

Am querying current line of thinking by several consultants. Admitted to hospital May 2011; lumbar puncture showed elevated CSF protein of 1088 mg/L with 228 white cells, 95% lymphocytes. The working diagnosis was viral meningitis, and I was discharged after 2 days aciclovir. Negative for herpes simplex virus 1 and 2. Developed infection in leg early October 2011, followed by painful groin, then ulcers either side of scrotum - non painful, and diagnosed as shingles. Mid October 2011, following tinitus, buzzing , hearing different frequencies, then vertigo, admitted for 2 weeks in ID ward...CSF showed 614 white cells with 90% lymphocytosis. CSF protein raised at 1335 mg/L. Tested for everything under the sun, incl. HIV, syphillis, Lyme disease, Cat scratch fever (leg infection thought to have been through an insect bite). All negative, incl. ANA. Chest x-ray, MRI scan of brain and whole spine also negative. Admitted again 26th December 2011, aciclovir for seven days, now back home feeling well, if a little tired. Current thought is Mollarets meningitis, but more recently, rheumatology dept. thinking Behcets syndrome, as I suffer from mouth ulcers. My contention is this; I have sufferd from mouth ulcers since a teenager taking exams at school. If I have a job interview, I will get mouth ulcers after @ 48 hours. Dentist thinks stress induced, as do I. I have no aching joints and no eye irritation, also, just found out that HLAB51 negative. I am a 42 year old British male and caucasian. I can t help feeling there s a square peg being pushed into a round hole here. What about migraine; the tinitus, buzzing and vertigo? Also, I took a non-steroidal (Ibuprofen) prior to the first two episodes. Bickerstaff s encephalitis sounds just as plausible as Behcets...or am I in denial? I would appreciate any advice, even if it s to simply face the music . Thank you for your time.

Hello Dr.I am hiv+ but that is very much under control. The alopecia areatta began before my diagnosis and even with treatment of the hiv and cortisone shots, there is very little improvement. Rogaine helped my eyebrows but made my head hair worse. Do you have any recommendations?
