well last year in febuary i messed around with this guy only one time.(he did perform oral) it was 2 days later i knew something was wrong.. at first i noticed that it was itchy..and ther was 2 lil bumps... i thought i had a yeast infection or i was hopeing thats all it was. so i go to the clinic. they could not get a swob from the bumps.. so the took my blood.. test came back negative for both type 1 and 2. so then it was a coulpe days after that... there were more bumps... and verry painfull.... it felt like lil pins poking me.. and it was very painfull to pee. so i went in again.. and they were able to get a swab from the sores... but they didnt take my blood. the swab test came back positive for hsv type 1.... so the doc put me on ACYCLOVIR.. it helpded and everything went away. so then a coulpe months later i wanted then to test my blood again because i was confussed.. so got blood work done again and sure enuff possitive for herpes type 1... inbetween all this time i called the guy i messed around with and told him what happened and he did say that he has had cold sores before and thats how i know he is the one who i feel "ruined" me. thanks for responding it means alot. i just feel like this is haunting me and think about it everyday. but one thing i always wonder is that... i was kissing him too but i never got a cold sore on my lip. so will i ever? or if i do ever have a outbreak again is it always gonna be in the genital area?View Thread
