I should have stated in my first post that I’ve has HSV1 orally since I was 5 (actually for the last 3 years I get them inside my nose, not my mouth anymore).
Anyways, THANK YOU for your response. Im sure I speak for many people here that words from a professional like you are extremely valuable. Thank you for what you do. I wish I could do more to show my appreciation.
I see I am at not much risk at all from my specific interaction, which is very comforting at a time like this. BIG lesson learnt.
The final questions I have now are:
1) I (male) had protected anal sex with with female, It was in doggy style. I did not have contact with her vagina for vaginal fluids. The only skin to skin contact was the front of my hips against her buttcheeks. Why is my protection rate with a condom 96%+ in this specific situation, but when compared to standard male/female vaginal sex my estimated protection rate as a male with a condom is 50-65%?
2) IF (fingers crossed) I don’t have any herpes blisters/signs appear after 12 days from my described exposure can I put this whole thing behind me and completely relax with confidence that I don’t have HSV from this interaction? OR should I get tested for HSV and other STDs still (in 3 month)? I want to be responsible, and if my exposure during this contact was enough to warrant further testing then I want to refrain from any other sexual contact until I can be confident I personally cant spread anything to anyone.
This is my last post and ends my subscription – again thank you.
