Genital Herpes sore?

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hello, I’m going to see my doctor on Wednesday, but I’m so nervous right now. I have unprotected oral and vaginal sex with my girlfriend quite often, and we had it again this past Tuesday. On Friday, I feel a small but painful (when I touch it) bump in my groin area. I read that it’s a possible symptom of Genital Herpes and I’m going crazy. I’ve trusted to squeeze it to see if pus would come out (bad decision I know), but none came out only making it painful. I’ve been tested for STDs many times this year and she has also been tested few times as well. Does this look like a Herpes sore or is it just a boil? Do you think this is an STD? Thanks.

    For me, it not look like a herpes. I think maybe you get some inflammation, you know, sometimes if people eat some spicy things then your body may give this symptoms to you. 

    All in all, for me, it really not looks like herpes. 

    So do not be scared and hope all of your result will be fine.
