a few months ago my girlfriend and I had unprotected sex (after a few times of having protected sex...) It started with unprotected anal, and I later cleaned up and (duh) :confused: put a lambskin condom on for the rest of the sex play- I can say that I thought I had an allergy to lambskins or heat rash from doing a lot of motorcycle riding- or the lube we used ..all I can say is it was stupid not using a condom...anyhow the next day I had a rash around my groin and stomach, that over three days to got worse. I had some flu like symptoms and in five days it was gone... my wife -had not idea about the girlfriend who swore she was clean, and after having unprotected sex with her- she developed bumps, and she didn't know about the girlfriend. - I told her about the other woman and she went out and had an STD battery done that week... she was swabbed and came back positive for herpes 2 :eek:. I can say that we both had swollen glands in out throats and these symptoms went away when her doc gave us valtrex 500mg. but get this - both the other woman and I just got our test results back and we both are negative for everything (no herpes, no HIV/aids, or any other STDs). the other woman is really upset with me for telling her she gave me herpes -but my question is this, from what i'm reading in the forums here herpes doesn't start with a rash does it?:mad: --- does anyone know if herpes starts out with a groin rash that might spread up the stomach and lower chest before turning almost in to a flu like symptom, I am not having sex with anyone again until I'm tested again in a few months - I figure, i've messed my life and a lot of other lives up doing what I've done, maybe I can share my story and be a bad example so someone else won't make the mistakes I've made. I hope that other people will not make the mistake I've made...Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
