I had sex with a girl a few days ago. The next day i had pain in the tip of my penis.. not very bad.. just annoying... itchy, tingly discomfort. Any ideas what it is?

  • I presume you mean you had unprotected sex - that wasn't very sensible - get yourself to an STD clinic or a doctor - sounds like you just scored herpes. Do remember, 40% of positive results on herpes tests are false positives - in other words, without the herpes sore to be sure, you need to get retested a few times to check you really have it - if you get a negative result, you can be sure you don't have it. Are you on any antibiotics? Some people get a reaction from those that mimics herpes sores. Docs can give you anti viral pills that will lessen severity of herpes outbreak - get to one now. It might be beginning of some other kind of STD - don't waste time, get to a doc.

Could you tell me how sure you are it's herpes please?I will make a doc appointment tomorrow morning. Thanks again,

  • The thing is I did see a doc since the weekend and I would have mentioned it to her, but I always feel like I am wasting their time and I have a lot of other issues so I feel embarrassed to bring up something new. Anyway I will make another (10 min max sadly) appointment... I might as well move into my doctors surgery. :(
