Basically i (male 36) received oral from a woman who i found out later from her has genital herpes. I dont know if she has oral herpes but i did not see any visible lesions on her lips and have known her for some time and have never seen any oral lesions on her but i dont know her oral status.
She massaged my penis and performed oral on me for about 5 minutes, this was 5 days ago.
Since then, i have had no signs of outbreaks or lesions or swollen lymph nodes or anything like that.
However, since 2 days after the incident i have been having a weird pins and needles and creepy crawly feeing in both my thighs on the front of the leg. Has been pretty consistent over the last 3 days.
I do suffer from ms but have never had this kind of sensation in my legs before.
Obviously i need to give more time to see if symptoms develop but does this leg sensation i am having seem like a typical precursor for genital herpes?
If you’ve had no lesions in 10 days from the encounter, new infection is unlikely. And her genital infection poses zero risk. It is only a risk of she has oral herpes. I am not concerned about your report of pins and needles feeling in your legs two days later. Normally, lesions appear before the neuralgia symptoms appear.
I confirmed with the woman and she is being honest with me (since she did tell me about the Genital herpes) that she has never had a oral herpes lesion or outbreak ever in her life.
I am now 10 days past and my legs still feel like pins and needles and slightly sore and stiff. I am also getting weird chilled feeling in my legs but not the rest of my body.
I have no outbreak or lesions of any kind. What are the chances now i have contracted hsv1 genitally?
Given that you have no lesions and given that she reports no history of oral herpes, I think the chance that you have genital HSV one is extremely low. I don’t know anything about your past sexual history and whether you have received oral sex from other people in your lifetime, but this encounter does not seem to me to be much of a risk for HSV one
