Im In A Bad Sit..

Okay Like A Lot Of People On This Board ..im In The State Of Emergency..i Got A Unique Situation..about The End Of Jan ..i Began To Have Urges To Urinate Alot And This Went On For A While And Still Is Going On Now...i Went To The Doctor And Told I Went To The Public Clinic To See If I Had A Std And The Clinic Results Came Back Negative..the Doc And I Decided To Go Ahead And Schedule A Circumsision Because He Felt Like It Would Prevent Infections Of My Bladder In The Future ... Two Weeks Before The Operation I Get 4 Very Small Bumps And The Next Day I Go See The Doctor And By Then The Bumps Was Barely Visible But You Can Tell Something Was There ..they Did Not Hurt At All And Eventually Went Away In About A Day Or Two ..i Did Some Reading On The Internet And It Sounds Like H..but Every Where I Call Or Ask Tell Me If It Is H..that It Does Not Cause Frequent Urinatation For Months ..i Am A Healthy 20 Something Year Old And As Of Monday The Area Where The Out Break Occurred Is No Longer There Because Of The Circumsision ..but I Need To Know Where To Go To Find Out If It Is H.. Or Not ..u C So Much On The Web ..and The Cost For Blood Test R Expesive ..

Re: Im In A Bad Sit..

Hey,
I can tell you from my experience that I need to pee all the time! I had my first herpes outbreak a month ago, and besides all the other symptoms I needed to urinate frequently. It didn´t hurt at all to go to the bathroom, I just needed to do it a lot.

Now I seem to have my second herpes ob and again I need to pee all the time! I have read on some web pages that herpes can do that to you. Usually people report though sharp pain when urinating, mainly because the urine passes over the blisters/cuts etc. they have from herpes. Not in my case.

I had other std tests done tiday and I´m hoping they will come out clean. As for finding out if you truly have herpes, you have two options: get a swab from a fresh blister, this needs to be done no more than 48h after the blister appears. Or get a blood test. Remember, it can take easily up to 12-16 weeks from your exposure before antibodies for herpes will show up. You can also test positive for hsv-1 and really just have it orally. So a type specific test won´t necessarily tell you if you have genital herpes, unless you test test positive for hsv-2 which s very rare in the mouth region.

Hope this helps!

Re: Im In A Bad Sit..

i would have a urine culture done. it's very likely that your frequent urination is due to a UTI. especially if you have had a (possibly false) negative herpes test. it's a pretty inexpenisve test. A urinalysis result can be back in hours, a culture takes a few days.
