I'm a 27 year old male. Had protected sex with a girl a few months ago (no condom during oral sex though) and a day or two after began experiencing a tingling sensation in my genitals (shaft of penis and tip), as well as a general tightness in the pelvic region. No pain anywhere, just a discomfort really. No pain or burning while urinating either. Also, no sores.
These symptoms lasted for about a week or so, then reoccured about a month later. Stress seems to trigger them now.
Waiting for blood tests to come back. I'm concerned it may be herpes. Can a herpes outbreak be just tingling and tightness, no sores? And if it is an std, did I necessarily get it from this girl, or can the act of sex simply bring a dormant std "to the surface?"
if for some reason it's not an std, can simple anxiety trigger these kinds of symptoms?
Interested in any similar exerience or info. Thanks.
20 people read this and no replies???? I'd help you but dont know how to in this situation. Come on guys he's here for help. I'm sure someone on here no offense at all has herpes or something that may be able to give him some info. ~ erica.
Yeah keep me posted. I am pregnant and had all my tests done and they all came back neg. But my doc said I had to wait for the herpes test because they take so long. Scary!!!!!!!!!! I'm just a paranoid person and I always think I have something even if I get the sniffles I think i'm gonna die lol. Good luck. Sorry noone posted to help you. Just wait for your results. I wanna know. Along time ago I got a wierd tingling feeling too and I freaked out but never had any other symptoms so who knows that is why I am so scared. ~ erica.
I don't think sex would trigger a dormant std. But stress could. I have never heard of anyone having herpes w/out sores and all/or some of the major symptoms and your's really arn't any of them. I have never experienced anything like that so I am sorry I can't be more of a help. I am a medical student, but I study blood and such. Sorry.
