1) What’s the risk level or likelihood from the 3 encounters described above and the any known estimate as per the number of encounters (Perhaps the median if known) before someone contracts genital herpes with some one who is positive… in other words what are my odds?
Our research is not that specific. The greatest risk of course is the encounter where the condom broke. But even if we look at that as a single encounter, the risk is not that high.
2) Would the flu like symptoms I had after 7 days after exposure (Fatigued, Tiredness a bit of congestion, perhaps elevated temperature) that lasted about 3.5 days be alone a symptom or would these normally be accompanied by any of the other symptoms? (such as tingling sensitive skin, or burning feeling etc.)
Congestion is not a symptom of herpes but fatigue and an elevated temperature sometimes happens with new infection. The thing you have not had our lesions and that would be our biggest concern
3) Would an OB happen after 6 weeks after exposure?
. Normally, with new infections, symptoms appear within 2 to 10 days. Something that happen six weeks out would be a recurrence rather than a new infection
