Does scar on the penis mean herpes ?

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 some people are just weird, 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.

Hi,
You have not to worry as about six months have passed so any STD is likely, might have given signs and symptoms of STD.
Now only you have to do is go for blood test for STD as even HIV test become positive by this time, if it is there.
if test is negative,you forget all your distressing past and start new life with your life partner and enjoy future happiness.

welcome to healthcaremagic
it's no use being scared and agitated
even you can not go to doctor go to some pathological laboratories and get tested for std/hiv
once sure about your condition then only go ahead with some body whiose condition should also be known to you
dictum is stick to your only partner each other and be tension free
varied the partners increased the chance of contracting the disease some times

hi i am male 21 years old 80 kg no medical history this is a long story but i want to add all the details i had unprotected sex with a girl and was worried about stds i was checking my penis constantly to see of any change. 5 weeks after the sex one night coming out of the shower i noticed the skin on the glands of my penis had some redness (i am uncircomsized) on it no pain, burning, tingling or anything just a bit red in patches. the next day it had all but gone so i didnt think anything of it a week later same sort of thing but only in one tiny patch also on penis head very small and hard to see the next day there seemed to be some flakey skin if i looked really close but again no pain or anything the day after this i went to the doctor and told him what had happened he had a look but of course the redness had gone and he said that the skin flakes were normal and that i should apply some moisturiser but i wanted a std check done also to make sure this now being 7 weeks since sex i was mainly conceerned about herpes but the blood test results were all negative for herpes both types, hiv, syphillis and hepititis. a week after this the same thing happened again i noticed redness on my penis glands on the top side covering about half of the head and also a little bit around the opening almost looked like it was just the blood vessels if i looked really close with a light i could see tiny little bumps in the skin but this could have just been normal skin texture the next day it was almost gone completly but there were some skin flakes again. now i am concerned that it is herpes even though i havent found any pics of herpes that look like this and there are no blisters or ulcers or anything like that the skin did look a little rough though. could it be herpes if it is gone in about 24 hours and would herpes infection happen so close together 3 times in 3 weeks. i should also add that this is the 4th blood test i have had for herpes over the last 3 years and they have all been negative. if not herpes what could this be and if the test was negative do i have anything to worry about could it be wrong?

Hi! So I am always at war with my mind, battling random anxieties. I get checked for STDs regularly. I am a gay male and have only had a few sexual experiences in my life, at age 27. I ve never been in a long-term relationship and I have only had a string of one night stands, where I ve never seen any sores present. The thing that scares me the most is Herpes, especially having it without knowing and accidentally spreading it to people. The weird thing is, I have never seen any bumps, lesions, cuts or sores. Sometimes I get an itchy anus and this is what triggers my fear. Currently, I have had itching going on for 5 weeks. I am assuming it is because of sweat and hygiene, which I have since corrected and I just started to use Lotrim which seems to be working. My question is-- would itching for 5 weeks without any sores present be an instance of possible herpes? I am driving myself crazy, debating whether or not I should go through the trouble of getting a blood test when really there is nothing on my skin. I read that you can have no symptoms at all and still carry the virus, able to give it to others. Do you think I have any valid reason to believe I have herpes or am I just totally insane? Is it worth it to get tested when the symptoms are not present?
