My risk for herpes infection
An_248358 posted:
Hi everyone,

I stupidly slept with an escort 2 days back, this is the first I ever did it and last time I'm ever gonna do it. We had about 15 min fling most of the time she gave me oral. She did ride me for a couple of minutes but that's about it, no vaginal sex apart from it. We used latex condom during the entire act and the condom was intact at the end. So I think I'm safe for HIV.

Her vagina didn't have any blisters or lesions so I believe she definitely didn't had an outbreak if indeed she was infected. But I read on this forum that it doesn't matter if a person have an visible symptoms, the virus can still be transmitted.

I'm extremely anxious at this moment, not sure what to do. What is a good time frame to get tested?

Also, is it possible to get the virus if I just had oral sex with condom? Please help!

You should get a type specific blood test for HSV 1 & 2 in three months and get tested for all sTI infections to be on the safe side.
