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%?
You stated that the condom fully covered your penis and that’s very good as sometimes they don’t for men. Also, you describe it lasting two minutes – that very very short and risk is proportionately lower with a very short contact.
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.
The testing for herpes yields some false positives and in low-risk situations like yours, I simply don’t recommend testing.
Herpes lesions don’t last 1.5 days and herpes doesn’t cause testicular pain.
Genital herpes doesn’t cause swelling of armpit lymph nodes.
