Is this herpes? (Pics included) plz help

Posted , 10 users are following.

i recently (7 days ago) had unprotected sex with someone who told me they were completely clean. I didnt notice anything out of the ordinary about his genitals apart from maybe a few shaving spots etc.

2 days ago i woke up to these spots.

i am going to my local sexual health clinic tomorrow to get checked up but was wondering if anyone could give me an idea of whether they think it is or isn't therefore ill know what to expect.

    Hey looks like it could be dryness, friction heat, shaving just before sex. all these are the cause of ulcerations. Doesn't look like herpes to me though. Update me when you find out please

      just been to the sexual health clinic & they honestly dont know if it is or not but she said it could be. Theyve sent off swabs so ill get the results within 2 weeks. In the mean time she's given me tablets to get rid of them if it is herpes.

    hey to be honest at 7 days out, your std chances are pretty limited. warts take longer and are less likely in women. this looks like folliculitis or from shaving as they look pus filled and totally able to be popped. regardless good job on taking your sexual health serious and i think you should still go!! but have peace of mind that i dont think these two bumps are going to be much of an issue. be confident and use protection!

    hang in there! you will still have an amazing future. the first breakout is usually the worst, so expect less pain from here on out. try to eat healthy and keep your immune system up for less breakouts! just be sure to only have sexual contact when ur 100% positive ur not outbreaking. and use a condom! this is super common, 1 in 6 people has herpes. everythings gonna be fine i promise!
