thank you again for all of your help. I have essentially waved off the oral sex possibility because here it is 8 weeks and I haven’t had so much as a fever. But there are a few last things that I would like to query about for my last posting.
1) if there were to be an outbreak, would it be all of a sudden or would there be slow on coming signs such as a stopped up nose one day and a fever the next and then lesions the day after that?
2) I don’t really even know what heretic Whitlock is, but I’m assuming it’s safe to say that she was not experiencing herpetic whitlow, even should she carry the hsv2 virus, the fact that she had no lesions or scarring when I went back a few days later?
3) thank you again for helping me answer my fears.done_being_dumbSpectator
Hi Terri. Thank you for your response and affirmation. I guess it really is just an anxiety thing. The condom did in fact cover my whole penis, though I am not sure if she pushed it on with her mouth or her hands, but I am pretty sure that it was her hands. I have seen that the statistics for people to have oral HSV2 is already really low and the rate at which they shed is extremely low as well, which I would assume that means I would have a one in several millions chance of catching HSV-2 from oral to genital contact. My biggest worry is about the handjob now. I have seen doctors say that there is no way to catch anything from a handjob and then I have seen others say that you can. Given that I did not see any visible lesions or anything on her hand, I guess my biggest fear is that she may have touched someone else before me and didn’t wash her hands or something. I think the retest would be more for my conscience so that I could continue to have sex with my fiancé without the fear of passing something on to her.
I tried to look around for statistics before coming onto here but everything is pretty contradicting. I have heard that HSV2 is very easy to catch and I have heard that it is not as easy as it is made out to be. I guess what really worries me is that I don’t know if what I have mentioned above is even a possibility. I also assume the main cause for transmission is those participating in unprotected vaginal sex, as I have seen on med help from you and others that herpes is almost never transmitted from oral to genital and especially with a condom. Not to mention that you said you have never even heard of a transmission from hand to genital, which is quite the relief.
