Burns when I pee/Itchy? HELP?
Ok. Randomly when I pee it burns for a few days...then goes away...then on a whim will burn again and also be itchy. (This has been going on for a few months)I haven't had sex since May and when I did..I used a condom! But I own had oral sex. I went to my health service clinic at my college and they said I don't own a UTI or a Yeast Infection and I might have HERPES?? Which is ridiculous..I haven't had someone do oral sex on me since FEB of last year..and sex (w/condom for literlaly 2 minutes) since May of final year..what's going on?? I have an appt. w. a gyno but i'm scared
Answers: A condom only covers the penis, you come into skin to skin contact when you enjoy sex, and genital herpes are not just located on the penis. Try not to worry until you see the gyno., you'll get the answer your looking for when they run trial. Good luck.
Herpes is spread by direct contact including:
as in good health as..
Skin-to-skin contact which transmits HSV-1 and HSV-2
Can be transmitted with or without the presence of sores or other symptoms
Is often transmitted by general public who do not realize infection can be passed on even when there are no symptoms
Is often transmitted by people badly informed they are infected.
That would be scary. Just so you know, not all urinary systems are symptomatic of STD's. I have a similar freak out and I had just been tested and cleared for adjectives STD's and it turns out it was just a staff infection (not to down play the seriousness of staff infections).
You are doing the right thing by visit a doctor and getting the tests, although I wouldn't be so quick to thinking it's an STD.
I wish you the best of luck!
Mine didn't last for months tho... More like a couple of days.
Look up on the internet "Oral Herpes" and "Symptoms of Herpes."
Good luck !
that same thing happen to me too!
it will be okay :)
A urinary tract infection can cause burning, but with down time that you have mentioned, this is unlikely as it would have spread to your kidneys. A kidney infection is usually symptomatic of flank pain, blood contained by your urine with or without fever and you know something is wrong.
Herpes simplex virus I is the virus that cause cold sores on the mouth and can spread to the genital area. If you had a sore, you would know it by now.
A yeast infection does motivation these exact symptoms and is easily cleared up using over the counter medication, such as Monistat 7 day cream (which is the only one I recommend). Inserts do zilch to control the skin irritation, and not all brands of antifungal ointment are as reliable.
However, with a problem remaining this length of time, you are doing the right thing by making an appointment with your doctor. Only a pelvic exam and a smear for the lab will answer the question at this point.
The best source I found on the internet is through the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and here is the correlation:
Wishing you all the best
