I understand you can’t provide absolute certainty but in your opinion, given that I’ve never had a cold sore in my life and had this one isolated encounter – If I don’t have symptoms by day 10, what would you say the chances are of me having acquired HSV via this encounter, would it go from low to extremely low? I guess I’m just seeking some reassurance, not absolute reassurance.
So to confirm if I experienced symptoms after 10 days, it would unlikely be HSV related as primary outbreaks are within the 10 day period? Again, given that I’ve never had a cold sore. I’d just like confirmation I could at least move forward with some confidence that I haven’t acquired it in the event of no symptoms (not certainty).
Thanks Terri, just wanted at least some re-assurance that after this 10 day period, I can move forward without worrying really even though I know you can’t provide a straight yes/no answer or certainty but I do value your opinion.
