I have flu like symptoms fever mild throat, do I have herpes from oral?

I have flu like symptoms fever mild throat, do I have herpes from oral?

Unlikely: I think you are asking about oral sex. When herpes is transmitted in this fashion it usually produces a classic rash with blister-like lesions which break down and form small very painful shallow ulcers. This may be accompanied by fever, malaise, etc., but it sounds like you may have a cold. Depending on the type of oral sex HIV can reach the tonsils if ejaculate hits the throat. Read more

Herpes: The typical presentation of Herpes due to sexual contact would present with blisters within about 72 hours after direct genital contact. There are many other STDs that you can contract, however, with unprotected sex, aside from just Herpes. If you are having symptoms, even without the blisters, it is best to get tested. Best wishes.

Can herpes simplex type 2 affect fertility in women and in men?

Can herpes simplex type 2 affect fertility in women and in men?

Unlikely: The main extragenital complications of gential herpes simplex infection include hsv meningitis and proctitits. I don't know of any occurrences of hsv orchitis in men or involvement of the seminal vesicles, bulbourethrals, or prostate, which may affect male fertility. Similarly, female fertility is unlikely to be affected by hsv alone. The main concern is vertical transmission during pregnancy. Read more

I have to kiss two men in a play, and I am worried about possible herpes. Neither have sores at the moment, but recently my bottom lip has felt weird?

I have to kiss two men in a play, and I am worried about possible herpes. Neither have sores at the moment, but recently my bottom lip has felt weird?

Very low risk: This could be a risk if you haven't had oral herpes. (If you have, you're highly resistant to a new infection with HSV1.) But the risk is very low if neither of your fellow actors has a cold sore. I would guess that without a visible outbreak, less than one kiss in 10, 000 leads to herpes. "Felt weird" isn't a herpes symptom. If no visible sores on their lips, you shouldn't worry. Break a leg! Read more

How accurate is 12 weeks negative stds blood test after exposure with unknown status men? HIV Elisa, rpr, hbsag, hcv, herpes. Can I stop worrying

No more exposures?: If a woman is a worrier, she will worry until she stops exposing herself. So, at this time she can stop worrying and stop exposing herself. If she decides to expose herself again, she will worry again. It's a choice to expose or not to expose; thus, the worrying is her own consequence within her control. Read more

Herpes Symptoms: The virus starts to multiply when it gets into the skin cells. The skin becomes red and sensitive, and soon afterward, one or more blisters or bumps appear. The blisters first open, scab over, and then heal as new skin tissue forms. During a first outbreak, the area is usually painful and may itch, burn or tingle. Flu-like symptoms are also common: swollen glands, headache, muscle aches, fever. Read more
