Been having unprotected sex with my girlfriend for a year now.
Last night, the soldier was itching a bit, so I unsheathed the uncut warrior to find my glans covered in tiny red bumps.
No symptoms other than that and my foreskin is red.
So, is this the clap, HIV? How long do I have to live?
regardless of what we say you are goign to have to see a doctor, so why not just do that?
that being siad, i had a similar issue. was sure i had herpes. the doctor was sure i had herpes. then the tests came back negative. no herpes for me
what was it? HPV. an entirely harmless strand of genital warts. the bumps itched only when i felt them being 'created' and rising to the surface. once there i felt fine.
they gave me a liquid to put on it that burns them off in 3 days (not painful at all, just a term) and ive been fine. it stays in your system for two years than gets filtered out. its recommended that all women get vaccinated for HPV. gay men too. but theres no reason straight man cant.
it sucks to suck, but hopefully not herpes. if it is, you at least have your gf and can deal with that together as she likely has it too (though you might have had it in hiding and she may be safe).
it certainly makes casual sex a LOT harder, but from what I've heard from herpes community (re: not online) it hasnt effected DATING. by the time they tell their partner they are too invested. women tend to think once they have feeligns, tahts it they have to see it through.
but you know, no casual sexi n the meantime.
but if it doesnt itch constantly, congrats u likely just got hpv. good luck
