Q: Hi, I have recently discovered some pimple like bumps on my vagina. The herpes virus dies almost immediately when exposed to the air but can survive a bit longer in warm, moist conditions.

While it is understandable that concerns about nicks and cuts acquired while receiving a shave or haircut might transmit HIV or other blood bourne infections, the fact of the matter is that there are not documented, sceientifically proven cases. My GF and I had planned a trip back to where I grew up to visit family and friends and get the rest of my stuff and since I still had most of my old room set up my old roommate told us we could stay there for the visit so we did. We stayed there for 14 days but the 2nd day we got there we went boating with a few friends for the weekend and we were in a huge rush to gather things for the short weekend stay. I don’t recall accidentally cutting myself while shaving, but it’s possible i did, and it’s possible she did too.
It’s possible to catch a miserable cold or flu by using someone else’s toothbrush. Fast forward 1 week later, I start to notice my groin kinda hurts, I thought maybe I tweaked it playing sports a few days back.. hmm nothing to worry about I thought and carried on. This happens when your razor isn’t very sharp or may be you are allergic to the shaving cream used. The next day I take a shower and my balls are tender, I look down to inspect and there’s about 8 pimple like bumps on my balls I think man did i get bit by a spider?! I show my GF and she thinks the same, that something must of bit me. 3.
something isn’t right. I had just had a STD check 3 months before this and had a clean test, My GF and I have been together for the last 10 months so I know she wouldn’t cheat especially since we are never away from eachother and I have been 100% with her only. I go to clinic to get tested and right away I’m told I have herpes, The doctor asks if I thought my GF would cheat, I said there’s no way since we are very much in love and plan on getting married and having kids etc. Use a different set of tools for fingernails and toenails, and for extra protection at the salon, bring your own clippers. She asked the time frame of when I used it and she said it matches up perfectly. She said My breakout looks to be about 3 weeks from infection. Use a shaving cream, preferably non-alcoholic.
So I got herpes probably the lamest way possible to get it, I didn’t even bang someone and catch it the old fashioned way. Now I can’t stop thinking about the choice I made to grab the pink razor instead of the green one, I’ve been feeling pretty upset with the whole situation.
