What are the symptoms of herpes?

Hello i am a male and about 4 or 5 months ago i caught chlamydia and after having taken meds for it i stopped stopped experiencing symptoms of discharge and inflamation in the urethra but im still experiencing irrititation. I practically put a huge halt on sexual activity and i masterbate every now and then but when i am done i have to use the restroom frequently for a day or 2 and during that time im not even peeing all that much and other trips i make to the bathroom i do pee quite a bit. It doesnt hurt to pee at all and its actually quite relaxing when i do but but something feels off and ive actually been fearing that i could have herpes. I just need answers, please help
