The other morning I woke up to my boyfriend kissing me, and I felt what I thought must be a herpes bump on my lip. I've had oral herpes before, so I knew the feeling, though there hadn't been signs of an outbreak before bed. He kissed me and I told him we couldn't and why. But he didn't at first fully understand the situation and thought it must just be a pimple. He snuck in a few kisses throughout the day and we shared a plate of food. Then at one point later we were fooling around though I was careful to make sure my lips didn't touch him anywhere. Later, he snuck in a kiss on the top of my lips (the outside visible thicker-skin part not part of my vagina but above) and stuck the tip of his tongue in my actual vagina hole but not all the way. This is all within the same day.
Currently don't know if I have signs. I had a UTI about 7 days ago though, but this was before the outbreak (peeing hurt a bit, though not now) and today I just felt a sudden period of pain below my stomach.
Am I at risk of genital herpes? Did I give oral herpes to him by accident, and then he passed it to my vagina? Any professional advice or personal experience would be greatly appreciated. I'm nervous.
What is the reason he didn't pass it to me (for future reference).
I haven't been tested for hsv 2, mainly because Planned Parenthood won't take an appointment for the test unless there is a visible sign. When's the right time to test though? I have never had genital herpes and don't know under what circumstances I should test for them...
many clinics besides PP will test you for hsv2 with a type specific herpes igg blood test. you can even find the biokit hsv2 igg rapid test in NYC ( sorry , don't know exact clinics but many folks post about it ). You get hsv2 igg results in 20 minutes with the biokit which is very convenient.
you should be tested for hsv2 3 months after any time a relationship ends. make sure every new partner has had herpes testing too before you are sexually active with them too.
