Status matters: Herpes is not always active in someone that has it. It is most easily passed when there are obvious lesions, but silent passage can also occur. If she is taking an antiviral to suppress outbreaks, you are at lower risk. A condom can help but is not 100% protective. Type 1 or 2 can be transmitted sexually. You can have type specific blood tests to see if you have had a recent or past infectionSee 2 more doctor answers
Before kissing a girl, how can I tell if she has herpes around her mouth? Will the symptoms show? Can I get std from kissing a girl?
Likely: Genital herpes can and often does infect the oral region in the form of classic cold sores. If you want to decrease chances of transmission, do not give cunnilingus when there are visible lesions, and/or engage in oral sex while taking the antiviral valtrex (valacyclovir). There is no sure way to avoid transmission except for total abstinence.
Kissed another girl before me who had gotten around and may have herpes. Is it possible for me to have herpes?
It is possible: The likelihood is higher of contracting herpes if she had an active lesion, but it is still possible (though lower chance) even if she didn't.
I drank out of a straw after a girl that had already contracted herpes did, I didn't know until now so can I get herpes from it?
Yes: While there are 2 forms of herpes commonly transmitted, an oral and genital version, these will generally only infect the area contacted. Much of the population already has one form of herpes. If you do get symptoms, they will likely be at the mouth.
Hi I slept with a girl a week ago who just tested positive for herpes. Is it too early for me to get tested for anything to show up?
Yes: What kind of herpes? Symptoms? Consider prophylactic oral valacyclivir pills.
Yes: If she has herpes that is certainly a possibility.
Yes it is possible: Both you and your partner need to be checked for sexually transmitted infections. Some herpes carriers can transmit infection to others without having visible sores. Also risk for herpes means risk for contracting other sexually transmitted infections including hiv. Talk with your doctor about safer sex methods to protect you and your partner.
Maybe: She may or may not have been shedding virus (contagious) at the time you hooked up. There are simple blood tests that can confirm a past infection. You may want to discuss signs /symptoms of an outbreak and be aware of what the exposure or disease means in your case.

I got a handjob from a girl with herpes. My anus has started to itch and I'm scared. Could I have gotten herpes from a handjob?

Occasional Anal itch, which goes away after scratching it. Had a frottage with a girl I don't know 8 months ago. Could this be Herpes? Pls help
Unlikely: Is there pain? Herpes usually is very painful when you have a primary infection and subsequent exacerbations may not be painful. Although the symptom of anal itching alone is not suggestive of herpes, and although your encounter with a girl 8 months ago may have not been significant, I can't tell you that you don't have herpes definitively
