I'm worried about herpes hi. I'm freaking out a little bit. I slept with a girl twice who told me she has herpes. I have absolutely no symptoms but from all the reading I've been doing I understand that you don't always have symptoms. My friends tell me I
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 infection ...Read more
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?
Condom use: Condoms can decrease, but not eliminate, the risk of transmission. If you haven't been using protection, start now. If you have any symptoms, get tested. If you don't have any symptoms, you can still be tested using a blood test. You should also have yourself tested for other STD's. ...Read more
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. ...Read more

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?

Dozens of ways: Herpes simplex is a very common virus and the little girl may have gotten it from mom or dad, from other relatives or friends or her playmates.

Planning on getting oral from a girl who has had cold sores before. Am I safe from getting herpes?
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 ...Read more
A girl I don't know drank from my straw right before me without me knowing. What is the likelihood or contracting herpes 1 if no sores were present?
So this girl has herpes and her and her boyfriend had sex In my friends pool with no chemicals in it and I swam in it so is it possible I have herpes?
No: Herpes is not transmitted unless there is CLOSE contact with infected person. First the virus would not survive long enough to infect you, secondly she'd need to have open lesions to shed the virus. If she is just a carrier, she won't shed virus actively, thirdly, she would need to transfer the virus through close contact which didn't happen. ...Read more
About three months ago my ex bf fingered me. Then I found out ten days before he fingered me he had fingered a girl with herpes. Could I have got it?
Unlikely to happen: Unless he had an active lesion on his finger I can't see how he would be able to spread it this way. The herpes germ may or may not have passed to his finger (rarely does)& the passage of 10 days assures enough time for the germ if present originally to dry out or be washed off long before your contact. ...Read more
A girl who recently kissed a person who had a 50/50 chance of having herpes drank from my bottle. If I removed the lid she drank from before I drank, could I get herpes?
Relax: Transmission of herpes is VERY unlikely this way. Herpes on the lip, usually type one---hsv1------is already present in most adults. Most of them have no symptoms. If you do a blood test you will probably discover that you already carry hsv1 and maybe also hsv2. What in the world is a 50/50 chance of herpes???? Either you have it or you don't. ...Read more
I got a handjob from a girl with herpes. My anus itches and was wondering if I could have got herpes from a handjob or could it be from something else?
Slow Down: Anus itching is not in any way a symptom of herpes. First, congratulation on having a sexual encounter. Second, what is the real problem here? Getting a hand job does not in any way put your anus at risk for anything. Why would you even spend a second trying to connect the two? ...Read more
Only if the herpes infection she has in on her hands.
You do realize that there are two herpes viruses. The oral herpes which infects 75% of us? The genital which infects 25% of us? The only way to be diagnosed is through the blood test? ...Read more

If I had asymptomatic herpes, and had sex with a girl, could she show symptoms even though I don't show symptoms?
I kissed a girl and later was told she had herpes I asked her and she said no she does not and she had no sores on her lips?
Orally transmitted: Oral herpes is transmitted through a kiss, a cough in one's face, sharing a glass or similar. For the most part you can recognize if someone has a sore on their lips or mouth, but it can be hidden somewhat. The incubation period is in the 3-10 day range, so you'll know soon if you've gotten it from her. ...Read more
