    What's the likelihood of me contracting herpes
    An_250703 posted:
    About a month ago now I was exposed to genital herpes which I was informed of the day after I had sex with the young lady by the young lady, I wore a condom but I did a lot of fingering before I put the condom on. The young lady said she had recently had a outbreak the previous Wednesday which had cleared up by Saturday and we had sex that following Monday. A week and a half later I noticed that my inner thighs felt irritated so I went to the doctor and he said he didn't see any signs of herpes this irritation last about a week. Now it has been a month since the exposure and my lips are hiring extremely bad and I did peck the outside of the young ladies leggings which were kinda moist from for play I was wondering am I showing signs of herpes and how worried should I be

    If you'd like an accurate diagnosis, getting tested is better than asking strangers to take your poll.

    I did go to the hospital got tested the next week but with this simplex the antibodies don't usually show up in the blood stream til about three months after the infection date. I was hoping by posting this I could get the opinion of a medical professional as to just how likely it was for me to have obtained it.

    Please explain what "lips are hiring extremely bad" means.

    Donkeywolf replied to georgiagail's response:
    Sorry bout that it was a typo I meant to say burning but since I last wrote this thread I revisited the hospital and they believe my lips were nothing more then dry lips since nothing related to the simplex appeared
