I don’t think there is any likelihood that you were infected with HSV 2 at this encounter. HSV 2 oral infection is uncommon and when it happens, the virus is shed from the oral area very infrequently. The other “no herpes” in this situation is that it takes about 48 hours for herpes lesions to develop, at the earliest! The average time from infection to lesion formation is 5.5 days. All your tests are negative at 12 weeks for HSV 2 and by that time, the IgG picks up 92% of HSV 2 infections. Combine the negative test with tiny tiny risk of oral sex resulting in HSV 2 AND too early for HSV lesions and I think you can relax about HSV 2.

Does the same logic in regards to ulcer timeline apply to GHSV1.
I have read in the forum several times that HSV1 if oral positive from past history will provide protection from a new GHSV1. How concrete is this statement ? Have you seen it happen in your experience.
All and all iam trying to move on with life as this is taking a mental toll on me. I can do it when there are no symptoms present. But this week with the stiff neck, mouth ulcer and leg sensitivity has really put me on complete tilt.
In your professional opinion do you believe that i can be non effected by a new exposure of GHSV1 as well ?

Yes, the same logic about timing applies to HSV 1 genitally.
I have only seen one person in practice in 35 years that said they had had a cold sore previously and had what they believed to be new HSV 1 infection genitally.
I don’t believe you acquired HSV 1 genitally at this incident either, correct.
